Their plans are underwritten by 4 Ever Life International Limited. The business is headquartered in Burmuda.

And most importantly, GeoBlue offers a mobile app that allows you to find providers that are members of their expansive network.

So they have created the Direct Pay program that allows you to take the stress out of medical bills while traveling abroad.

The tour of the Silk Road to China was done well. It was quite a fast pace with early rising, early breakfasts and on the bus with luggage by 8:30 AM to satisfy the schedule of our sight seeing. Time for shopping was limited and we would have liked a more leisure time in this area. Everyone was healthy despite the challenges of alot of walking and climbing many stairs. Luckily, younger and more able persons were on hand to lend their support. I am 83 years old but was able to physically enjoy all the visions of China that were offered to us. There were only two nights at the excellent hotels when we were able to stay two nights. This time allowed us to do successful hand laundry. Otherwise, it was one-night stay, just slipping out the necessary clothing for the next day. Weather was great with no sand storms or heavy rains. Even the 13 plus hours of air travel was comfortable. I am thankful for this reasonable cost of a one-year subscription to your service and hope I never have to use it! Thank you for giving me a peace of mind!

My tour company *required* travel medical insurance, so I didn't have an option to just take my chances. GeoBlue had a bare-bones plan that met the tour requirements at a reasonable price. I had no covered incidents during my trip, so I can't speak to the claim process, which would be the overwhelmingly most important characteristic for a review.

Nothing went wrong while I was on my trip, but it was good knowing that I had coverage if something did.
