Traditional insurance won’t rescue you, and a medical evacuation can cost up to $300,000. The cost to our members? Just the price of their membership, which starts as low as $139.


Without Global Rescue, your travel emergency could take longer, cost more — and make a dangerous situation a lot worse. That’s the value of a travel protection membership.

COVID-19 Services Included

Unlike other providers, Global Rescue does not make any distinctions between COVID-19 and other infectious diseases with respect to our services. Whether a traveler needs a COVID-19 screening and testing regimen for a trip or needs help finding a COVID-prepared health care facility, Global Rescue provides assistance before, during and after travel. Should an emergency occur, our medical and security experts can fully coordinate all aspects from advisory to evacuation. We’ll be with you every step of the way: Our advisory services continue until the member is brought home or gets better.  

“Being told that you are bleeding internally is not something you want to hear anywhere, but you especially don’t want to hear it in a country lacking quality healthcare.”

– Mari Harris on a recent job posting in Monrovia, Liberia

“Normally, when you need help with something there’s a 24-hour delay. Global Rescue responded to me within about 30 seconds.”

– Maredith Richardson, a U.S. graduate student studying in France who lost her passport to a purse snatcher

“Given how remote we were and in a world with COVID-19 and constantly changing travel restrictions, the fact that Global Rescue got us back home was a miracle.”

– Zach Cann whose job relocates his family to Papua New Guinea 10 months out of the year
