A lot of people ask me what travel insurance they should get. First I point them to our article How To Buy Travel Insurance: What It Covers, When You Need It. Then I tell them that if they really want peace of mind, they should consider this emergency assistance membership program that goes beyond what regular travel insurance provides: If you should end up in a foreign hospital, Medjet will get you back home to the doctor you trust and the hospital near your family and friends, saving you many tens of thousands of dollars. Medjet offers crisis protection too: If during your trip you feel that your safety and security may be threatened—because of a political incident, terror attack, or other crisis—they will come to the rescue.
So I thought you’d want to know that on Monday, December 2—for one day only—Medjet is putting its annual memberships on sale. The details are here.
Not sure which membership is right for you? Personally, mine is a MedjetHorizon family membership.
Already got a Medjet membership? Consider gifting one. After all, it’s a gift you’d want to get. I plan to give some as holiday gifts. In fact, I’ve already collected this enrollment info from the giftees. (And I plan to have their enrollment packages sent to my address, so I can give them as a physical gift, rather than spoil the surprise!)
Want to speak with a real live human being? While it’s a cyber sale in theory, human beings at Medjet will be happy to answer your questions—not only on Cyber Monday but every day this week except Thanksgiving Day and Sunday.
Full disclosure: Medjet is a sponsor of WendyPerrin.com. But that’s because I use their services myself and believe in them. And their sponsorship is another thing for us all to be thankful for: It enables me, Billie, Brook, Jill, and the rest of our growing team to spend time answering your many travel questions and finding the savviest trip-planning specialists for you.
