Protect Yourself.
Save Time and Money.

We expect the unexpected so you don’t have to.

That’s the value of a travel protection membership. You have a team of medical and security experts behind you, no matter where you are in the world. Lose your passport in Paris like Maredith? She avoided a six-week bureaucratic nightmare with Global Rescue. Have a motorcycle accident in a remote part of Africa like Jim? Global Rescue’s medical personnel got him to safety. Become COVID-19 symptomatic in The Bahamas like Dolly? Global Rescue evacuated her by air ambulance to a higher level of care.

Without Global Rescue, your travel emergency could take longer, cost more — and make a dangerous situation a lot worse.

COVID-19 Services Include

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.
