Last-minute surgery cancels trip to Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos

A husband and wife were preparing for a two-week cycling trip in Vietnam, Cambodia in Laos when they received the alarming news — a week before they were set to depart — that she would require an emergency surgery. They would be unable to take the trip, her doctor said.

Apart from missing out on an opportunity to pedal through quiet rice fields, visit forbidden cities and imperial tombs, and take part in Vietnamese cooking classes, the couple also had to forfeit a staggering $33,000 in lost deposits and non-refundable airline tickets.

As comprehensive travel insurance policyholders, they submitted a trip cancellation claim and Cavalry reimbursed them the full amount.

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.
