Good Neighbor Insurance Inc, www.gninsurance.com, has been helping clients with their international travel needs since 1997. Who wants to buy insurance when we feel that nothing will happen to us? Right! I personally prefer putting that money I would spend on travel insurance on some Kindle e-books or grabbing a couple movies from iTunes. Oh, yes, and a couple of great Starbucks coffee, too boot! But alas, reality sets in when I realize how much medical evacuation costs overseas to my wallet if I did not have travel insurance. Think $20,000 and above just for an air ambulance to transport me to a hospital. So I decide to forgo my extra Starbucks coffee and couple Kindle e-books and pluck that money on travel insurance I pray I never have to use. But if I do need to use my travel insurance benefits I know that my travel insurance company will foot the bill and not me and my credit cards!
Here is what some clients have shared with us using these travel insurance plans, www.overseashealthinsurance.com/ we provide for our clients.
In my previous travels to India and Asia, I had never considered the need for travelers insurance. All that changed when, in the mountains of Tibet, I was thrown from a horse and landed in a boulder field. Injuries to the left side of my spine, chest, abdomen and hip were extensive. I was in the middle of nowhere, and even by horseback, it would take two days to reach the nearest road. It was a worst-case scenario. Fortunately, HTH Worldwide, www.overseashealthinsurance.com/trip-protection.asp , initiated a comprehensive plan to help bring me to the nearest source of medical care with the highest standards. That your Katmandu based staff was willing to wait three days in a remote village for my arrival is more than impressive. Exploring the world is a beautiful experience and carrying travel health insurance is just a practical necessity of life. Blair L.
“Thank you Good Neighbor Insurance for such a great product.”
While in the airport some travelers were discussing the travel insurance they had purchased along with all the “What Ifs.” When I was asked if I carried travel insurance, I replied, “Yes, most definitely. Having used the product in the past, I would never travel without it.” When I told them why, they were totally amazed at all the benefits and services the policy includes, and how affordable it is. Thanks Good Neighbor Insurance, www.gninsurance.com, for such a great product. R. T.
I am in South Africa to work at a nonprofit organization that assists orphans and vulnerable children in a remote location outside of Johannesburg. Knowing the location, I was motivated to prepare ahead of time. Before my departure, I printed out nearby hospitals, doctors, and additional medical services information from the global database. I am able to access mPassport’s databases on my mobile phone in South Africa. Rachel F.
“With your information tucked into my bag, I board the plane feeling confident.”
This past year I have traveled to Egypt, Greece, and Israel. Before going on each trip, I checked the mPassport databases for names and addresses of doctors and hospitals and your evaluation of health risks and medical facilities. With your information tucked into my bag, I board the plane feeling confident that I can get help all along the way. Pat A.
“My wife and I are absolutely delighted with the service we received.”
While on assignment, I began noticing chest pains following slight exertion. When the situation persisted, I contacted HTH Worldwide by phone, www.overseashealthinsurance.com/short-term.asp . A cardiogram and blood test were quickly arranged and performed at the guest house where I was staying. The tests proved that I was experiencing blockage in my arteries, and it was necessary for me to be admitted to Milpark Hospital in Johannesburg. An angioplasty was performed and a stent was implanted in my coronary artery, which was discovered to be 99% blocked. I was very close to having a major heart attack. To say HTH Worldwide and Alliance International Medical Services delivered more than I expected would be a gross understatement. My wife and I are absolutely delighted with the service we received and have been recommending HTH Worldwide to all of our friends who want to travel, but are concerned about unexpected health emergencies. We will never travel again without availing ourselves of the health benefits and services afforded through HTH Worldwide. Thanks for your outstanding service. Jim D.
“I was able to look up a doctor in London online and make an appointment with him the same day.”
I was able to look up a doctor in London online and make an appointment with him the same day. He was professional and friendly, and the whole process couldn’t have gone more smoothly. I was very happy to be able to connect with a qualified professional when outside the U.S. right away. Thank you! I. S.
