Whether you’re trekking through the Eurasian Steppe, surfing in Mundaka, diving off the coast of Thailand, or (not so) simply crossing the road in Vietnam, accidents or sickness can happen at any time during your trip. And if it’s bad enough, you may need to be medically evacuated or repatriated for ongoing medical care.

Our Emergency Assistance teams, and doctors and nurses have seen some horrific accidents and illnesses and have helped thousands of travelers be medically evacuated to appropriate facilities or repatriated home so they can fully recover.

What’s covered

If you’ve selected the right policy for the activity you’re doing and it’s medically necessary, there’s cover in all of our policies for medical repatriation, as approved, by:

  • Air ambulance
  • Sea level aircraft
  • Helicopter
  • Ground ambulance
  • Commercial airline upgrade
  • Commercial airline with medical accompaniment

Depending on your Country of Residence and the travel insurance plan you choose, you may also have access to Coronavirus (COVID-19) coverage for certain events including evacuation. Some of our plans offer:

  • Emergency medical cover, evacuation and/or repatriation if you’re diagnosed with COVID-19 while overseas;
  • Cover for some additional Coronavirus-related events such as cancellation following a diagnosis to assist our travelers on the Explorer Plan.

To find out what cover applies to you, read our What's Covered for Coronavirus article which has all of the details, including benefit limits, conditions and exclusions.

Coverage depends on your Country of Residence and the Plan you choose.

How to get assistance

It’s essential that you get in contact with our Emergency Assistance team as soon as reasonably possible so that our teams can support you from the time you fall sick or get injured until the time you get home.

  • Your policy number

I was cut off by a dog whilst riding a push bike. Subsequent to my initial consultation with the doctor I was referred to hospital where I received surgery for my fractured foot and had my hand placed in a cast. I received assistance from specialty assist for my hospital bills and repatriation.
