$6,280 nearly sunk in the crystal blue seas

A California woman in her seventies was looking forward to a cycling trip to Croatia, a week-long bike and boat tour of the sunswept Elafiti Islands and the crystal blue seas off the coast of Dubrovnik, but her back had other plans. Two days before she was set to depart, she felt increased pain along her lower back and legs, and visited the doctor.

She was diagnosed with lumbar spinal stenosis, and the doctor said she should not go on the trip. The Cavalry comprehensive travel insurance client submitted a claim for $6,821, and Cavalry reimbursed her in full.

Cavalry combines the best medevac insurance with travel insurance benefits such as trip cancellation, trip interruption, lost baggage, primary medical expense coverages, and more. Cavalry is powered by Redpoint Resolutions, a medical and travel risk security company owned and operated by special operations veterans and physicians.

Redpoint covers almost 10 million people worldwide and has evacuated clients from all seven continents.
