Speak to an expert

We've got the right connections

We have a network of providers globally, to ensure our travellers have access to the best available medical care in your location. Our team are here to coordinate care with overseas providers.

When should you contact Emergency Assistance?

We encourage our travellers to contact Emergency Assistance anytime they need assistance or guidance, whether medical or non-medical.
As a guideline, travellers should contact us if they’re admitted to hospital, or if their overseas medical expenses are going to be more than $2,000 – activating our services at this point means we can help ensure they receive appropriate medical treatment, and can start looking at other ways we can assist.
