  • Handling medical emergency while traveling to Africa

    My wife and I will be traveling to Africa and are concerned about what happens if we are in a medical emergency. We are looking for something that will bring us home for medical treatment. The thought of undergoing any kind of hospitalization in a different continent is scary!

    Most trip cancellation policies will include evacuation coverage, with the amount covered for evacuation ranging from $10,000 to a million. However this is typically to the nearest medical facility that can provide the treatment required. There are a couple of plans (Travel Guard Silver and Travel Guard Gold) that do evacuate the person to the home country upon a hospitalization [under the the Hospital of Choice benefit] if the optional Emergency Evacuation Upgrade is purchased. I would look into these.
