If you have purchased travel insurance from Goodtogoinsurance.com, we will send you details before you travel on what to do if you need medical treatment whilst you are away. This will be either by email or, if you have requested your documents by post, on a handy card that will fit in your wallet.

Details of how to reach us in a medical emergency or to make a claim can also be found on the cover of your policy wording. 

We recommend that you look up the local number for the emergency services before you travel and put the number for our 24/7 emergency medical assistance team in your phone.

We’ve also written a short guide on what to do if you need medical treatment abroad, which includes details on the following:

  • Minor injuries and illness
  • Serious illness and injury
  • 24/7 emergency medical assistance
  • Global health insurance card
