The tooth cracked while I was abroad an my insurance company said that I should not get the permanent crown abroad but rather wait 2.5 months with the temporary crown. Is this sounds reasonable? Is it possible to use temp crown for this period?

Replace it as soon as you can, temporaries, wont last long,and they do not support masticatory forces,this can cause you problems,

Temp Crown on Back Tooth
It all depends on how ell-fitting the temp crown was made. If it fits very well, and was cemented on very well, it can last 2.5 months, if you're careful and avoid chewing on it.
