Member of the LGBTQ+ Community? CAP is Proud to Protect You
LGBTQ+ Travel Medical & Security Assistance for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, or Questioning
Travelers in the LGBTQ+ community face many challenges, both home and abroad. And, depending on the destination, travelers who identify as lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender, non-binary, or those questioning their sexual identity, may be at serious risk. Besides discrimination, LGBTQ+ travelers are subject to hate crimes and violence that could jeopardize their personal freedom – or even their very lives.
We are proud members of the IGLTA (International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association) and want to do our part to ensure members of the LGBTQ+ community are safe and secure.
CAP fills in the gaps in travel insurance with the flat-fee LGBTQ+ travel medical and security assistance, providing 24/7 emergency medical and security protection without any out-of-pocket expenses. That means we’ll be there (in person, if needed) to get you to safety, fast.
Moreover, we help members of the LGBTQ+ community navigate the complex, highly nuanced laws and cultural customs of each destination, providing on-demand concierge assistance with legal referrals, language interpreters, and much more.
With CAP, members of the LGBTQ+ community can travel fearlessly.

Why Do I Need the LGBTQ+ Travel Medical & Security Assistance Plan?
Here are the top 3 reasons you need CAP
Did You Know?
There are almost 100 countries where homosexual behavior is against the law – and even if it’s not outlawed entirely, there are often ‘public decorum’ or ‘public decency’ mandates that may be used by local authorities to harass and imprison members of the LGBTQ+ community. See Map.
1. You May Need Security Protection
Traveling nowadays, there are security concerns for everyone, but members of the LGBTQ+ community face additional risks, especially in places where sexual orientation or gender identity are marginalized or even criminalized.
CAP’s LGBTQ+ travel medical and security assistance gives you immediate access to our experienced, highly trained security team. If you’re wrongfully detained by the local law enforcement (whether it’s related to your sexual orientation or not), if there’s secular or political unrest (resulting in riots and civil commotion), or if something more serious occurs (such as a violent crime against you, or extortion, hijacking, or even an act of terrorism), CAP provides 24/7 security assistance to get you to safety – or home – fast.
That’s right, access to a specialized security team (that includes former military special ops and federal law enforcement agents) is part of the package. The best part? CAP’s LGBTQ+ travel medical and security assistance is flat-rate, so you don’t pay anything extra for an elite security force that’s proud to have your six.
You’ll also enjoy a wide range of valuable concierge services, such as legal referrals, access to language interpreters, and assistance if you lose your baggage or important documents, like your passport or visa.
Did You Know?
Included in your plan is the CAP Advantage App, which among other things, provides real-time health, safety and security information, including country and city-specific insights on challenges and possible threats for LGBTQ+ travelers. Having this actionable intelligence on hand helps you stay safe (and helps you avoid dangerous situations altogether).
2. Accidents & Natural Disasters Happen
If you have international travel medical insurance for accidents or natural disasters, you have to go through a time-consuming claim and costly deductible process. But that’s only half the problem. When there’s a crisis situation, you’ll be on your own, trying not to panic, doing your best to figure out how to get yourself to a hospital or out of harm’s way.
CAP’s LGBTQ+ travel medical and security assistance gives you access to one-touch, 24/7 emergency assistance. Our crisis response centers are staffed by a highly trained, experienced team of medical and security personnel, including trauma physicians, nurses, paramedics, former military special ops and federal law enforcement agents.
If you have an injury or serious medical emergency, our elite, multilingual team is on hand to get you to safety – fast. We’ll organize and pay your travel expenses, from lodging to airfare. And if medically necessary, we’ll pay the cost to evacuate you to the best available medical facility (even if it’s in your home country – and refer you to the best doctors)
3. You May Not Be Covered for COVID-19
Sudden travel bans and unexpected quarantines can completely derail your trip and postpone your travel home.
CAP LGBTQ+ travel medical and security assistance helps with COVID-19 pandemic mandatory quarantine hotel expenses and includes hospital-to-hospital transfers.
If you become very ill and an emergency medical evacuation is needed, we’ll handle the cost of getting you to the best available medical facility (even if that means arranging for a medevac to a hospital near your home). Our goal is to get you home, safe – and we’ll spare no expense to do it. The best part? It’s flat-fee protection, so you won’t pay a dime out of pocket.
