TripInsurance.com, the most trusted online resource to help travelers find the trip coverage they need, today announced that it has added non-medical emergency evacuation coverage as part of its extensive online portfolio of travel coverage. These policies, underwritten by BCS Insurance Company and US Fire Insurance Company, will pay up to $25,000 to evacuate travelers to safety in the event of a natural or man-made disaster or due to covered political issues.
Unlike medical emergency evacuation coverage, these policies are designed to provide protection in case of unforeseen disasters, such as Hurricane Katrina, the nuclear emergency in Japan, or the political crisis in Cairo. The policies cover all reasonable expenses to remove you to the nearest place of safety, or to your home. Travelers can call On Call International LLC toll free, and they will arrange for the most appropriate, economical, and safest means available for evacuation. Evacuation coverage is only provided for arrangements made by On Call International.
“When travelling, even to traditionally safe locations in the world, disaster can strike without notice. One minute you are touring the great pyramids, and the next minute your hotel is in the midst of political unrest. You can never predict when an earthquake, flood, or hurricane will affect your trip,” said Dan Skilken, founder and CEO of TripInsurance.com. “That’s why we offer this invaluable Non-Medical Emergency Evacuation Benefit. You can now travel with the peace of mind knowing that we can help get you to safety.”
Non-Medical Emergency Evacuation Benefit is designed to protect travelers if, during a trip, the local authorities or the U.S. State Department issues a warning to leave due to: a natural disaster, civil, military, or political unrest, or you are being expelled as a persona non-grata from the country you are visiting. Evacuation must take place within 10 days of any covered event. If Non-Medical Emergency Evacuation is required, these policies do not cover the loss of the balance of your travel expenses for the interrupted trip. The provisions are designed to help make arrangements to evacuate the area, and cover the expense of getting you to safety.
