Travel Protection Plan Testimonials
Enhanced 100% Travel Protection PlanHear what our travelers say about Vantage Travel ProtectionPurchasing the Vantage Travel Protection Plan can seem like just an added expensewhen you’re reserving your trip. However, as the Vantage travelers discovered, whenyou have to cancel a trip before you go, fall ill while on tour, or lose valuableproperty, it’s a lifesaver. And for those on Medicare, which does not extendits coverage overseas, it’s vital.
"Having six relatives in poor health, we always purchase the Travel Protectionwhen we travel with Vantage. We always needed to protect our travel investment inthe event we had to cancel or fly home due to a family emergency. In the end, itwas me that needed to be rushed to the emergency room on a recent trip in Munich,Germany due to a heart attack and pneumonia. Before paramedics could deliver meto the ER through morning rush hour traffic, Vantage had contacted Trip Mate, thehospital and obtained a nearby hotel room for my wife.
Eight days later, the hospital released me to fly home but only with a nurse constantlyadministering oxygen and monitoring of my blood pressure and oxygen level. A nursewas flown from the U.S., monitored me during the flight and delivered me directlyto an emergency room near my home. I was hospitalized for an additional three days.
The overall bill including room-and board for my wife approached $40,000. I am sorelieved that I had the Travel Protection Plan and will never travel without it."Leonard W. G.,
