In 25 years as a travel journalist, I’ve found two best ways to make a trip safe and stress-free: (1) Maximize every moment by using the right local fixers. (2) Minimize every risk by using the right emergency assistance program. So I thought you’d want to know that Medjet, which protects travelers from a range of risks—including terrorism, natural disasters, and questionable foreign hospitals—is having a Cyber Monday sale, Monday November 27 only, with discounts of $50 to $100 off memberships.
Years ago, shortly after I had children, a Condé Nast Traveler colleague gave me the gift of a Medjet membership. She said that, now that I was a parent, I couldn’t risk something happening to me overseas and not being able to get home to the kids. That Medjet membership brought me peace of mind all over the globe—and today I’ve upgraded to a family MedjetHorizon membership, so when the kids travel with me, they’re protected too. If you’re looking for the right gift for the traveler in your life, consider keeping them safe this way.
While you’re cyber shopping, also check out this extraordinary business-class and premium-economy airfare sale offering 60% off flights to Asia.
