When it comes to traveling in today’s turbulent times, COVAC GLOBAL wants to make sure you are protected from unforeseen circumstances during this unprecedented pandemic. COVAC GLOBAL founder Ross Thompson, who comes from a foreign intelligence background and has been involved in crisis management on the commercial side, saw that a new crisis was arising when it came to international travel. Thompson wanted to ensure that people wanting to travel the globe during the global Covid-19 pandemic could return home on their terms rather than being forced to quarantine or check into a hospital or government facility.
Thompson, a native New Yorker who grew up on the Upper East Side and currently lives in South Florida while also spending half of his time in Mexico City, was worried about what would happen if he came down with Covid-19 while abroad.
“I called all of the insurance companies and asked if I sign up with your program what happens if I get sick, and they all said that they don’t cover contagious diseases, epidemics or pandemics, it’s all excluded. It was then that we used our background and expertise in crisis response, as well as our relationship with the London underwriting marketing, to start COVAC GLOBAL.”
Whether you are traveling for business or pleasure COVAC GLOBAL is the first fully indemnified response solution. From New York to Nairobi, this revolutionary company will fully pay for repatriation back to your home should you contract Covid at least 300 miles from your home. They have already seen tremendous success, and just a few months ago decided to launch a new domestic aspect of their program.
COVAC GLOBAL is a membership program for individuals, families, government agencies and companies. What makes them truly different is that they don’t require you to be hospitalized if you test positive while abroad. International hotels currently require you to take a test, so when a recent client and her daughter were traveling to the Maldives and her daughter began suffering from a headache and fatigue and tested positive for Covid, COVAC GLOBAL got into action! They paid over $200,000 to bring them back home to New Jersey. “We took them via speedboat from their villa where we had a Hawker waiting for them,” explains Ross. “They didn’t have to go to a doctor or a hospital. We triggered the repatriation because of the positive test result and the fact that the daughter was symptomatic.”
No matter where you go and what you encounter, COVAC GLOBAL membership has you completely covered. This cutting-edge concept is set up financially to continue covering pandemics and any other contagious diseases that might arise.
“People want to know that if something goes wrong, wherever they are, that they have the option to just get home without having to jump through a million hoops for their policies or membership benefits to be triggered.
You no longer have to fear flying to your favorite destination, including five-star hotels. That’s because you can purchase membership to COVAC GLOBAL at ritzy resorts including Esperanza in Cabo, Round Hill in Jamaica, Hermitage Bay in Anguilla, The Tyrall Club and dozens of additional hotels that offer a specific blend of their product. If you test positive, they will fly you right home so that you don’t have to stay for 14 days. This is especially essential in the Caribbean, where you are currently made to go to a government facility. How does it work? They operate on a travel day basis, with 15, 30, 60 or 90-day membership plans. You can even split up your days over the course of 12 months. Anyone is eligible, meaning there are no exclusions for age or pre-existing conditions. They already have thousands of members and are growing every day as demand continues to rise for this company which does things differently. So far, they have made a couple dozen evacuations form the Peruvian Andes to Stockholm, the Bahamas and Mexico.
One thing is for sure – they stay true to their motto: “Get sick. Get home.”
