The Global Rescue Difference

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.

This is how travel insurance and a Global Rescue membership differ. 

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 $139.
