Emergency Transportation is Available Through CAP Tripside Assistance
Many consumers often purchase travel insurance, assuming that they are “covered” for everything should a medical emergency occur. However, only some of the costs of a medical emergency are covered by your insurance provider. Among other limitations and exemptions, traditional travel insurance usually never includes emergency transportation.
While medical emergencies during travel are uncommon, they are an unfortunate reality that can occur. Truly anything can happen during travel, and activities such as watersports or posing for a picture with a wild animal can turn dangerous in an instant. Some travelers might wrongfully assume that their travel insurance will cover all the costs of such travel mishaps, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Should you or a loved one experience a serious medical emergency during travel and need to be returned home for further care, the costs of medical transportation or medical evacuation services
could be life-changing. Many times, travelers learn the full costs of such services months after the incident, receiving an unexpected bill that could be tens of thousands or sometimes even hundreds of thousands of dollars.
