“Pho” Real – You Need an Emergency Evacuation and International Medical plan in Vietnam!

When bad luck strikes, who do you turn to? Do you have the peace of mind and financial protection and coverage provided by an Emergency Evacuation and International Medical plan?


It's your first trip overseas, and you are in Vietnam and feel so free. You rented a motorcycle for ease of travel, and have been having a merry old time hiking along rice paddies, crawling through the Cu Chi Tunnels in Ho Chi Minh City, swimming in the crystal-clear waters of Nha Trang, Mui Ne, and Phu Quoc, and eating your weight in pho and spring and steamed rolls from street-side eateries.

However, two weeks into your month-long trip, you crash your motorcycle! You don’t get badly hurt, but you sustain a broken leg, scrapes and burns, but between the medical bills and trying to find the right doctor in a land where you don’t speak the language, it is both stressful and complicated especially when ill or injured. Beyond the mental stress, the endeavor could seriously set you back financially. Luckily, you bought Emergency Evacuation and International Insurance, so your medical care was supervised by a team of U.S. based International medical experts, coordinating and tracking your progress every step of the way and directing you to a hospital meeting the highest in international standards of care.

This also comes in handy a few days later when, after enjoying a coconut milk and melon smoothie, you find yourself in the throes of food poisoning. Despite your vigilance about checking water and ice to make sure it is government-issued or is coming from a water bottle instead of straight from the tap, this smoothie slipped through the cracks, and you are now the one paying the price. Again, your Emergency Evacuation and International Medical plan has your back, covering the bills associated with receiving medical care when you check into the emergency room to take care of your dehydration and electrolyte imbalance.

That night, thanks to your decision to purchase Emergency Evacuation and International Medical Insurance plan, you are able to sleep well knowing that your financial situation is safe and you medical condition well on its way to a positive resolution.

Now get yourself on a bus, hop back onto that cruise to the Mekong Delta and Halong Bay, keep eating pho and delicious, fresh seafood, and explore all of the wonders that Vietnam has to offer.

 Dream, do discover, and let TravelCare take care of you.
