GEAR

GEAR is a travel assistance membership designed to assist members in an emergency. Focusing on proactive risk management for global travellers.

Travel insurance is primarily designed to provide financial protection against routine travel issues, such as trip cancellation and local medical bills. GEAR is a membership program that has been specifically designed to help you in extraordinary situations, including a life-threatening travel crisis, or a security emergency. You may find that some travel insurances include these services, but none specialise in handling these types of incidents on a daily basis.

GEAR X is a travel assistance membership, focusing on medical assistance for travellers on a global basis.

GEAR X provides comprehensive medical assistance for travellers and expatriates around the world.

 

Depending on your membership level, we will provide medical evacuation and repatriation to either the nearest hospital or medical facility equipped to handle your condition, or to your home country.

 

While most assistance companies provide medical reparations from the source country hospital to the home country hospital, we go that step further and specialise in medical assistance and evacuations from the point of incident. All medical incidents are handled by our team of in-house practicing medical professionals, each of whom is an expert in remote medicine.
