We’ll pay for your reasonable additional travel expenses (equivalent to a return Economy Class airplane ticket) for you to resume your trip to the destination where you would have been (according to your original travel plan at the time you are resuming your trip) if you are:
1. medically evacuated or repatriated home due to an acute serious illness or acute serious injury; or
2. using the compassionate emergency repatriation cover.
If you’d like to resume your trip, you MUST advise us within 30 days following your repatriation or compassionate return home.
