The GeoBlue Trekker Essential is a multi-trip Medical plan which offers emergency medical coverage while you are traveling abroad. This plan covers trips up to 70 days in length (per trip) that you will be taking outside the country during the year. The Trekker Essential plan does require you to have primary health insurance in place, but there is no exclusion for pre-existing conditions. This plan has lower limits than the Trekker Choice plan.

GeoBlue Trekker Essential
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!

We did not need our plan due to health issues during our trip. It was required by the tour group. In our search for a comprehensive plan for a reasonable price, GeoBlue stood out. We are in excellent health and in our early 60's, so this plan gave us comfort to know we were covered as we huffed and puffed up the mountain-side to the Sun-Gate of Machu Picchu.

Relieved to have a plan and more relieved not to use it. We are taking our next trip in April and hope it will be as uneventful

Your network of care providers is very thin and I did not see proper instruction on what to do in a 911 emergency situation.

We had a wonderful trip with no medical inconvenience, but on the back of our minds we knew that if something happened we would be covered.
Thanks.

We did not have to use the insurance but were relieved to have it in our back pocket, just in case.

A must have for frequent travelers. The Trekker plan is a fantastic deal. They paid my ship's medical bills 3 times with no fuss (including one visit to a dentist).

I did not implement the plan, or should I say it wasn't needed, so I don't really know how user friendly it is but I traveled with a lighter heart thinking I was covered.
