Coverage that addresses medical needs
If you have a medical emergency or accident, your health care bills will be paid for (up to your selected coverage amount). Our coverage even addresses the need for a guarantee of payment, so you get care without delay.
Get to quality care, quickly
In a medical emergency, our 24/7 Emergency Response Center specialists help assess the best care for your needs, and the best place to deliver it. If the right care isn’t available locally, medical evacuation coverage can pay the cost of medical transportation up to your coverage when appropriate, whether ground or air ambulance, to a credentialed hospital or center of medical excellence.
Work or weather is getting in the way?
If your itinerary is changed for health, weather or work reasons, this plan steps in with coverage that includes accommodations, meals, transportation and other support.
Coverage for full-on adventures
Some vacations are more daring than others, whether due to your favorite activities or the terrain of your destination. Our optional add-on Extreme Sports coverage includes scuba diving, parachuting and more; optional Rental Car Damage is available as well.

In case of a covered sickness or injury—or even if you just have a toothache —your medical needs are our top priority. We’ll help you find quality local care for your situation, and ensure that any payment needs are immediately addressed.
Accident and sickness expenses
When the unexpected happens and you find yourself ill or in an accident, your medical expenses whether inpatient or outpatient as well as prescriptions are covered under this benefit.
If you find yourself in need of a medical evacuation, security evacuation or natural disaster evacuation, your plan covers you up to your coverage limit.
Unexpected dental needs are covered as well, and our global network of medical providers means we’ll find you a vetted dentist that’s as close as possible.
No matter what unexpected event or unfortunate change may occur, you have backup to help with accommodations, meals, transportation and more.
Depending on your level of coverage, non-refundable trip costs can be reimbursed if your trip is cancelled.
Got sick midway? Change in work schedule? Your coverage kicks in mid-trip if needed, trying to get you home safely and providing reimbursement for remaining deposits and payments.
