JS TRAVEL INSURANCE PROVIDES SEARCH AND RESCUE COVER

Search and Rescue Travel Insurance


JS Travel Insurance provides cover for many extreme Sports and Activities and as such we provide Mountain Rescue, Air Ambulance as well as Repatriation back to your home area.

There are some areas, where this cover is not available, such as Greenland. The Greenland Government insist on you purchasing a Search and Rescue Insurance policy separate from your Travel Insurance policy. The Government's minimum charge is extremely high and is beyond normal cost of Search and Rescue which is provided through a Travel Insurance policy.

3rd Party Evacuation Services

Is some cases we will require you to take out extra cover for Search and Rescue such as with our Adventure policy provided by PJ Hayman.

We often refer people to Global Rescue who can provide short term or annual plans for Search and Rescue worldwide for a relatively small premium compared to the cost of an Sport or Activity that could be for example and expedition or Glacier Walking in a remote area.

It is also advisable to have a tracking device on you, so that you can be found relatively quickly, by the Search and Rescue team.

There are even with Global Rescue, some limitations and exclusions to the cover and yoiu should read carefully their terms and conditions before purchasing a policy with them.
