Global Rescue is the world’s leading provider for Travel risk; Medical advisory; Field rescue and Security extraction. Founded in 2004, GR has exclusive relationships for Emergency & Medical services worldwide.
In our sport of Hang gliding and Paragliding, accidents can and do happen. If you are participating in an event from Airtribune chances are you are far from home. Rescue and Repatriation is essential.
GR have partnered with Airtribune to offer a package that will see you rescued, put into medical care, and then repatriated to a hospital of your choosing. And you will not have to get your credit card out once! With 450,000* Euro coverage, you can travel with the knowledge you are covered, anywhere in the world, for the most worrying part of your adventure. More importantly, GR Membership covers events and competitions.
GR is not an Insurance policy, but a member policy. We recommend the Travel policy, for 7, 14, 30 days or 1 year, which typically costs between $119 and $319 USD.
GR additionally offer Travel Insurance from IMG Insurance for the more regular aspects of travel such as medical costs, baggage, holiday cover etc. However be aware this Insurance currently does NOT cover Competitions, only general flying holidays. So ensure the IMG option suits you before adding that option to the membership.
Cloudbase Mayhem, by Gavin McClurg, also has excellent advice, updated regularly, on his website for what cover will work best for most circumstances.
