This plan covers trips up to 70 days in length (per trip) that you will be taking outside the country during the year.

GeoBlue Trekker Essential
My husband died suddenly while we were vacationing in Costa Rica. I called GeoBlue and they were MOST helpful every step of the way. They assisted with the transport of the body to the funeral home, made all the arrangements necessary for them. GeoBlue also provided a name at the US Embassy as my contact person who took care of the death certificate and the mortuary passport for the remains to be brought back to the United States. I do not believe I could have done all of this without the help and support of GeoBlue and have recommended them to all my family and friends.

since i have not needed to file a claim, my main happiness with this policy is the reputation of the provider blue cross and the coverage provided - for less than $120 usd per person for a year coverage. we have 3 trips planned so this is $40 per person per trip. yes it is only medical but look at what you get for $40 from other trip insurance companies. my bags and the cost of my non refundable tickets are covered by my credit card but not a $100k usd med evac or $50k non usa doc. i sleep better at night with this coverage.

GeoBlue Trekker Essential
Fell down in small town France and did Bad Things to my wrist. Suffered overnight (of course it was Sat night) and went to ER in middle size town France Sunday morning. I am a physician who speaks some French. Well cared for, got physician exam, Xrays and even CT scan (would have wanted Xrays in US--probably not CT scan). Physician gave me his note (in French) and a prescription for a brace (appropriate care for my severe sprain with no fracture) and directions to the "on call" pharmacy for the region to get the splint. Drove about 30 miles, got the splint and off we went. When I got home 2 weeks later, went to GeoBlue website and filled out claim, scanned my ER note and prescription and submitted it. 2 weeks later claim was pain less the $50 deductible. Total satisfaction. One fo my big issues before I bought this coverage was the paucity of "I used it and ti worked" reviews as opposed to the "I was so relieved that I had it but never needed it" reviews. Bravo Zulu--well done to GeoBlue for doing what they said they would do
Linda R. would recommend this plan to a friend or relative.
