Enjoy Spring Break with Peace of Mind Thanks to Global Travel Plus!

Spring Break

Before leaving for your Spring Break vacation, the last thing we want to think of is the risk of getting sick or injured and whether good medical care will be available at our destination. We bask in the sun on white-sand beaches, zipline in the jungle, ski in the mountains, camp in the woods and explore new countries.

This is why Global Travel Plus offers Emergency Travel Assistance Services to ensure you get the best possible care provider in the shortest possible time.
