Would you know what to do if you found yourself in a life-threatening situation far from home? The travel insurance carriers we partner with are experienced in arranging emergency medical evacuations. A good travel insurance plan (like the ones we offer here!) will cover the necessary expenses to transport you to the nearest medical facility that is equipped to handle any life threatening medical condition. Another really nice benefit of these plans is that they will typically pay for expenses related to having a family member travel to be with you in this kind of difficult situation. The HCC Atlas plan, for example, will cover the transportation, lodging and meal costs for a relative to join you after an emergency medical evacuation. As always, we hope you never need this kind of benefit and that your trip goes off without a hitch… but wouldn’t it be nice to know, in the back of your mind, that you’ll be well cared for if something goes wrong?
Contact us to learn more about travel insurance plans for your upcoming trip overseas. There are plans available for mission teams and groups traveling together, as well as for individuals/families, and the price could be as low as $1/day per person. It’s a small investment that can pay off big time.
