Europ Assistance USA (EA USA), assisting corporate customers and employees when the unexpected happens, today announced that Canadian insurer Reliable Life Insurance Company (Reliable) now offers EA USA’s Travel Assistance Program under selected travel insurance plans administered by Reliable Life.
EA USA’s Travel Assistance Program helps travelers deal with the unexpected endemic to traveling, with services including emergency medical assistance; financial, legal and communication assistance; and access to other critical services and resources available via the Internet.
Program participants have access to travel assistance including aid replacing documents such as driver licenses or passports, emergency cash advances, recovery reimbursement, emotional assistance, and legal aid. The program also provides specialized medical assistance, including medical evacuation and/or repatriation, repatriation of remains, medical case management and review, return of traveling companions and dependent children, and assistance with prescription replacements and refills, among other services.
“We are proud to be a part of the benefits offered to Reliable Life clients,” said Guillaume Deybach, president and CEO, Europ Assistance USA. “In today’s global economy, it is essential that travelers be able to rely on comprehensive assistance while away from home. We are honored to provide them the peace of mind they – and their colleagues – require.”
EA USA’s personalized traveler assistance represents another way Reliable Life and its affiliates can support the health and welfare of their customers while traveling away from the comforts of home.
When a Traveler Assistance Program participant encounters the unexpected while traveling, a single call to a toll-free number begins the support process. A specially trained coordinator quickly assesses the nature of the problem and works with colleagues at 38 alarm centers worldwide or agents located in over 200 countries and territories to provide assistance.
EA USA and the Europ Assistance Group have handled more than 150 million assistance cases during the past four decades of service. EA USA provides assistance services through financial institutions and insurance companies, as well as directly to employers.
