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.

I can’t really rate the plan since, thankfully, I never had to file a claim. Therefore I have no basis recommend it at this time.

The cost does seem reasonable if the coverage and hoops you have to go through are as suggested in their literature.

It is somewhat more tricky to sign up for this plan than the others, and my password did not work when I tried to contact them overseas. They did help me by email to establish another password. But since their office is closed on weekends, it took awhile.

Fortunately our trip did not require any medical care. I was impressed that you provided a list of medical facilities in or near our destinations. we are eligible for Tricare coverage via US military facilities, but the important aspect of the coverage for us is the emergency transportation feature should anything major occur.
Thanks

I did not need to contact Geo Blue for any reason. Having the plan did give me some peace of mind.

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!
