Experience More Without the Worry

The Beyond The Road membership program supports you in the continental U.S. and Canada whether you’re hiking, kayaking, snowmobiling, fishing, simply enjoying the outdoors or traveling.

  • 24/7/365 access to medical advisory services from nurses and paramedics trained to respond to any medical situation.
  • Direct traveler assistance to help with local health care system, visa and passport issues, translation, legal locators and real-time event alerts.

How Global Rescue Helps


Minor injury or illness 

Snake bite? Twisted ankle? Do you know what to do? Are you sure?

Beyond The Road members can call Global Rescue and get real time access to EMTs, paramedics, and nurses who will help you sort out the dos and don’ts based on your symptoms and circumstances. You’ll have the best information without wasting time, or worse, relying on the hope that you’re doing the right thing.


Seeking travel advice and services 

Brush fires? Flash flood warnings? Local language barrier? Did your prescription medicine run out?

With Beyond The Road membership you’re one call away from real time help from travel experts who will help keep you safe and prepared. Whether it means changing your destination, getting you a translation service, identifying where you can refill your prescription, or something else, with Beyond The Road you only have hope and hope is not a strategy.


Major injury or illness

A broken leg or head injury from a simple stumble? Heat exhaustion or heart attack triggered by severe weather? The unexpected happens.

 Each of these may require immediate medical evacuation. Beyond The Road membership means you’re one call from an on-staff medical and security expert who will assess your circumstance and arrange for your rescue, by helicopter if necessary. Without Beyond The Road protection your rescue could take longer, cost more and make a dangerous situation a lot worse.

"If not for Global Rescue, I would probably still be sitting in the bush and my knee damage would have been beyond repair."

- Chicago's Louis Cairo, reflecting on his horseback riding accident in British Columbia, Canada.

- Mary Kelly, needed a rescue after suffering a broken leg during a backpacking trip.

"From start to finish, Global Rescue had me protected - from the helicopter flight out to their paramedics gathering my symptoms to having their doctors review my EKG and test results."

- Ben Debney, a former EMT skiing in British Columbia, Canada.

"I have Global Rescue on speed dial in case of emergency."

- Zach Eiten, an avid outdoorsman who broke his foot in Montana.
