Travel insurance and a Global Rescue membership are not the same thing. Travel insurance is designed to provide financial reimbursement for trip interruption and medical insurance coverage, while our membership provides emergency field rescue, medical evacuation and transport, and medical advisory services at no additional cost.

But a Global Rescue membership and travel insurance do go hand in hand. When you purchase both, you can be confident knowing you’re traveling with the ultimate safety net: emergency field rescue from the point of illness or injury, evacuation services, travel advisory and financial protection.

When a travel emergency arises, traditional travel insurance may not come to your aid, and a medical evacuation can cost up to $300,000.

The cost when you have a Global Rescue membership? $0. That’s why when the unexpected happens, you want the leader in rescue, evacuation and medical advisory behind you. You want Global Rescue.

Does Global Rescue have any restrictions?

Global Rescue offers one of the most comprehensive travel protection memberships on the market.

Membership benefits are not restricted by any activity, country of residence, or mileage-from-home limits. Our services go with you anywhere you travel except U.S. State Department war zones and Polar Region travel above the 80th Parallel North or below the 60th Parallel South.

For those adventuring to higher altitudes, our High-Altitude Evacuation Package provides medical transport services to members who travel above 15,000 feet or 4,600 meters at any point during their trip (excluding airplane travel) and who require emergency transport due to injury or illness.

What is field rescue, and do I need it?

When you are unable to get help on your own, emergency field rescue is assistance from the point of illness or injury to the nearest medical facility. Anyone venturing into the backcountry should have this critical service. Worldwide field rescue was pioneered by Global Rescue.

How do I contact Global Rescue in an emergency?

No matter your situation – emergency or not – you call just one number and one number only: +1 617-459-4200. This is the number you should program into your cell or satellite phone, but you can also contact us through the messaging feature on the My Global Rescue app.

If I need to be rescued, should I arrange my own evacuation?

No. Please call Global Rescue at the time of an incident and we will provide the necessary services from start to finish (if you are incapacitated, you can have a member of your team contact us). When Global Rescue organizes and/or performs the rescue and the Member Services Agreement criteria are met, there is no cost to the member up to $500,000. If you arrange for your own rescue, we are unable to reimburse members.

Will Global Rescue get me home if I'm hurt or injured?

Global Rescue membership services include medical transport to your home hospital of choice if you’re hospitalized as an in-patient 100+ miles from home and require additional hospital care.

What if my insurance offers medical evacuation services?

With a typical insurance company, you are burdened with arranging your own medical transport and submitting the bill later for reimbursement. As a member of Global Rescue, you simply need to contact our team of medical and security professionals, and, if an evacuation is needed, all transport arrangements and costs would be covered by us (medical up to $500,000, security up to $100,000).

Do Global Rescue's services include COVID-19?

Yes. If members have questions related to COVID-19 or contract the virus while traveling, our services apply. We treat COVID like any other disease.

Is Global Rescue only for emergencies?

No. While Global Rescue provides a wide variety of emergency services, we also provide services for non-emergency situations such as: 24/7/365 medical advisory services, visa and passport issues, translation, legal locators, real-time event alerts and telehealth.

Don’t Leave Without Packing Your Peace of Mind

Our member services are available 24/7 to answer any questions you may have.
