Travel advice

Flash flood warning? Local language barrier? Ran out of a prescription?

You’re just one call away from help from experts who will keep you safe and prepared, whether that means changing your destination, finding translation services or identifying where you can refill your prescription.

Major injury or illness

Head injury? Heat exhaustion? Heart attack? COVID?

In case the truly terrible ever happens, an on-staff expert will assess your circumstance and arrange for your medical evacuation, if necessary.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this travel insurance?

No. Travel insurance provides financial reimbursement for trip interruption and medical insurance coverage typically for a single trip. Global Rescue’s annual Worldwide LifelineTM membership provides year-long emergency field rescue, medical evacuation and transport, and medical advisory services at no additional cost. There is no additional charge for service. No claims to file, no deductible or copay, and no reimbursement to request when you use the Global Rescue Worldwide LifelineTM services. Access to TotalCareSM telehealth video consultation service with a medical doctor costs an additional $95 per consultation. See Global Rescue’s Worldwide LifelineTM Member Services Agreement for details.

What is field rescue?

Field Rescue is the transport of a member by ground, air or sea to the nearest appropriate hospital, clinic or medical provider. We send help if you are ill, injured or in danger and unable to get to care on your own — no matter where you are in the world, close to home or far away.

Will medical evacuation get me home if I’m hurt or injured?

Yes. As long as a member is more than 100 miles from home and has been hospitalized for 5 days or more and is cleared “fit to fly” commercially by a medical doctor, Global Rescue shall arrange and pay for the member’s transportation home once the member is discharged from the hospital.

Is this only for emergencies?

No. While Worldwide LifelineTM provides a wide variety of emergency services, it can also be used in non-emergency situations, such as 24/7/365 medical advisory services, visa and passport issues, translation, legal locators and real-time travel event alerts.

Do I need to be traveling internationally to use my membership services?

No. While Global Rescue’s medical and travel advisory services are only available to members when they are at least 100 miles from home. Telehealth consultations are available no matter your distance from home. Field rescue is available regardless of your distance from home except when you’re traveling in the Arctic above 80th parallel North or on/near the Antarctic continent below the 60th parallel. Members can also access travel preparation insights – including security threats, entry requirements, COVID-19 travel status and restrictions and more – through destination reports for 215 countries and principalities. See Global Rescue’s Worldwide LifelineTM Member Services Agreement for full details.

Are telehealth services available?
