Definition: If a covered illness or injury occurs during your trip and our medical assistance team determines that the local medical facilities are unable to provide appropriate medical treatment, emergency transportation benefits can pay for you to be transported to the nearest appropriate facility. Please note that in order to receive these benefits, you or your representative must contact Allianz Global Assistance to make transportation arrangements in advance.
Emergency transportation benefits can arrange and pay for your transportation home — with a medical escort, if needed — once your condition is stable. These benefits also can arrange and pay for transporting a friend or relative to come to your bedside, if you’ll be hospitalized for more than 48 hours during your trip.
Example: You’re riding the trails at a remote lodge in Wyoming when your horse bucks and throws you to the ground, causing serious injuries. Paramedics determine you need to be airlifted immediately to the nearest hospital. Allianz Travel Insurance’s Assistance team arranges for a helicopter to take you to the nearest appropriate hospital, and your emergency transportation benefits cover the cost.
After you learn you’ll be in the hospital for several days, the Assistance team arranges and pays for a family member to fly in and stay with you. Once your condition has stabilized, your Assistance contact arranges your flight home, so you can continue your recovery.
