Should an emergency occur, our medical and security experts can fully coordinate all aspects from advisory to evacuation, allowing travel companies to focus on delivering the best possible experience for their guests. Here’s what we provide at every stage of a traveler’s journey.


 

PRE-TRIP PLANNING

Our experts have also researched transportation infrastructure and identified air ambulance services to transport COVID-19 patients.

Action Plan Creation

No emergency action plan in place? Our teams of paramedics, senior military intelligence and Special Forces veterans can provide assistance updating existing protocols and implementing new procedures to address COVID-19 risks.

Actions Plans may include:

  • Full audit of existing company plans, standard operating procedures, contingencies and emergency action plans

ON TRIP PROTECTION

 

Client Profiles

Track travel history, medical conditions and test results in one secure location. Global Rescue Intelligence Delivery System (GRIDSM), a proprietary journey management platform designed to store critical traveler information, automates the creation and retention of client profiles.

Travel Alerts

Make informed decisions with research from our intelligence experts. GRIDSM continuously monitors changing border restrictions, fluctuating destination conditions and shifting traveler rules — providing real-time situational awareness to both operators and travelers.

Traveler Location

Know where clients are — and keep them safe — from booking to the return home. With user opt-in, the GRIDSM platform can monitor traveler location in real time through GPS tracking and match profiles to potential threats.

Shareable Data

If destinations request proof of vaccination or test results, GRIDSM data can be shared with industry stakeholders, relevant levels of local, state or federal governments and other required organizations.

Don’t risk being infected or infecting others with a trip to a health care facility. TotalCareSM telehealth provides traveler access to doctors for real-time diagnosis and treatment from anywhere.

Partner Program Details

Given how remote we were and in a world with COVID-19 and so many constantly changing travel restrictions, the fact that we got back home to the U.S. at all, in my mind, is a miracle. We were really thankful to have Global Rescue.

Zach Cann, father of two from Chandler, Arizona

Global Rescue gave us hope that no matter what, we were going to get out of China. They also provided us with information about the virus that we were not getting anywhere else.

If you feel like you’re alone and trapped, having somebody – like Global Rescue – who knows where you are, brings huge peace of mind.
