Contact Us with any pre-trip questions.

What should I do if I get sick or hurt?

For emergencies, please call the local "first responder" in your locale (for example, "000" in Australia, "911" in the US, "119" in Japan, etc.). For less critical situations, you should call the assistance centre for referral to a doctor/medical provider in your area.

What if I need prescription medication?

If you require a prescription and it cannot be obtained locally, or you need to replace lost, stolen or depleted medication, we will, subject to local regulations, arrange for the shipment of the needed medication.

What if I am hospitalised?

Contact Us and we will communicate with your treating medical provider to discuss your care and the appropriate steps for your safe and speedy recovery. Our Medical Team will monitor your condition until it has been resolved or you have safely returned home.

What if local medical facilities are not adequate?

If you are hospitalised in an area where adequate medical care is not available, we will arrange to evacuate you to a medical facility capable of providing the required care. Our medical team supervises every evacuation case. When necessary, a medical specialist or nurse will accompany you during the evacuation.

What happens when I am released from the hospital and still need help?

When your condition is stabilised and your treating physician agrees it is medically appropriate or advisable to bring you home or to a facility either near your current location or permanent residence, we will arrange for your repatriation under medical supervision.

What will AIG Travel do in the event of death while travelling?

In the event a covered traveller dies while travelling, we will work with all relevant local and home-country authorities to obtain the required clearances necessary to arrange transportation for the return of mortal remains, making best efforts to follow the family's instructions.
