Two Travel Programs to Consider Before Your Next Trip

Take advantage of travel safety training to prepare for your trip abroad. Learn how to best navigate international emergencies, protect your health and wellness, and much more.






If your trip abroad goes wrong will you know what to do?
In the event of civil unrest, accidents, or a natural disaster, do you have an evacuation plan to get home safely? If your son or daughter experiences assault, serious injury, illness, or theft while studying abroad, will they know where to go and how to get help on their own? Every country has different laws and procedures, and your insurance might not cover you when you need it most.
