Global COVID-19 Transport
Field rescue and medical evacuation of COVID-19-infected members requiring hospitalization.
Accident or injury. A lost passport. A positive COVID-19 test. When a travel emergency arises, traditional travel insurance won’t come to your aid, and a medical evacuation can cost up to $300,000.
Travel insurance is designed to protect your wallet against trip interruption, lost or damaged luggage and medical emergencies. A Global Rescue membership protects you and your wallet in the event of a travel emergency requiring field rescue, medical evacuation and transport (including COVID-19). Unlike travel insurance, there are no claims to file, no deductibles or copays, and no reimbursements to request when you have a Global Rescue membership. Instead, a Global Rescue membership provides its services at no additional cost beyond your membership, which starts as low as $129.
We will send help if you are unable to get to a hospital and in urgent need of care. With no distance requirement, rescue services are available whether you’re close to home or on the other side of the world.
If you do have to be hospitalized and you’re far from home, we have the proven capability to transport our members back to their home hospital of choice. This includes global COVID-19 transport.
Our operations centers are staffed by experienced nurses, paramedics and military special operations veterans.
Whether it’s a language barrier during an emergency or a lost passport, Global Rescue travel assistance can help with unexpected issues.
Speak to an in-house Global Rescue expert on the first call. Personalized communications, recommendations and responses continue until your emergency is resolved.

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 can provide 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.
