Cancun, Mexico – April 28, 2021 – One of AAA’s largest clubs, The Auto Club Group (ACG), and Global Rescue, the pioneer of travel risk, crisis response, field rescue and medical evacuation, are introducing Beyond The RoadSM, a service providing travelers the peace of mind to explore. While Global Rescue services are available to the general public, special rates are now available for ACG’s 14 million AAA Members throughout 14 states, the province of Quebec and two U.S. territories.
Domestic travel is rebounding strongly, with outdoor activity in the U.S. and Canada reaching new levels of popularity. The AAA membership follows you when you’re on the road. Beyond the Road complements the AAA – The Auto Club Group Membership by offering world-class emergency protection with field rescue, medical consultations and access to virtual doctor appointments, so you can roam with confidence anywhere in the contiguous United States and Canada, knowing that help will come to you.
“Beyond The Road supports you in the continental U.S. and Canada from the point of illness or injury to your choice of care facility anytime you’re away from home,” said Dan Richards, CEO of Global Rescue who also serves on the U.S. Travel and Tourism Advisory Board at the U.S. Department of Commerce and is a Global Member of the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC). “If you need advice while traveling, get sick or injured and are unable to get to medical treatment on your own, Global Rescue is there for you, near home or far away.”
Beyond The Road services include:
- Emergency field rescue from the point of illness or injury to the nearest care facility and then home.
- If you're hospitalized 100+ miles from home and further hospital care is required, we provide medical evacuation to your home hospital of choice.
- 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 systems, visa and passport issues, translation, legal locators and real-time event alerts.
- Telehealth access 24/7/365 for real-time consultations and treatment (additional fees apply).
“When COVID-19 grounded us at home, people turned to outside activities and travel in North America for a change of scenery and to refresh themselves in the great outdoors – and this trend continues,” said Debbie Haas, Vice President of Travel for AAA – The Auto Club Group, which is a member of the World Travel and Tourism Council.
“People are continuing to take road trips to the trails, the waterways, the mountains and elsewhere to hike, camp or ride bikes in the wilderness,” Haas continued. “The Beyond The Road pilot program is there for you if you are sick or injured and need advice or assistance. We are excited about this partnership with Global Rescue and plan to expand the program as the year progresses.”
Participation is available to all U.S. and Canadian residents. Members of AAA – The Auto Club Group are eligible to receive a $50 discount on Individual one-year memberships for $159 and family memberships (up to six dependents age 26 or younger) for $289.
