Worldwide Evacuation

For when you can’t get the treatment you need in a local hospital

The Worldwide Evacuation option is ideal if the treatment you need is not available locally. It covers you for reasonable transport costs to the nearest suitable medical centre, ensuring you get the treatment you need. Repatriation gives you the added option of returning to your home country or specified country of nationality, to be treated in more familiar surroundings.

What is covered?

There’s no annual limit on Worldwide Evacuation. It covers you for the transfer of minor children, so that they can be taken to a place where a guardian or relative can care for them until their parent has recuperated. You are also covered for compassionate visits, enabling a relative to visit you should you have a sudden accident or illness and are going to be hospitalised for at least five days or you have received a short-term prognosis. Your relative will also receive a cash sum to help cover living costs during their stay.
