Extended Family

Extend critical EA+ privileges to additional family members traveling with you

Published on February 8th, 2024 in EA+ Explained, Travel Assistance

If you travel throughout the year with your family, then you know that, with frequent travel, comes risk. Did you know that Emergency Assistance Plus offers protection for extended family members?

Who is protected when you add Extended Family to your EA+ membership? Parents, adult children and their spouses, grandchildren, and brothers and sisters are protected when they are traveling with you. You can add Extended Family for only $80 per year (that’s just 22¢ per day).

The Extended Family upgrade protects your additional family members with:

  • Medical Evacuation to get them to an appropriate facility for treatment
  • Transportation Home when they are stable enough to return home
  • Nurse Escort to monitor their care during their trip home, if medically necessary
  • Return of Traveling Companion via one-way economy-class ticket
  • Return of Minor Children to get them home to family while their parent(s)/grandparent(s) are hospitalized
  • Return of Deceased Remains if they pass away while traveling
  • RV/Vehicle Return if their hospitalization leaves their vehicle stranded

No matter the size of your extended family, your request for coverage will not be denied. We’ll cover up to 4 members of your extended family on each trip. It doesn’t matter if different family members go with you on different trips. Your request to add your family cannot be turned down. There are no additional questions to “prove” they qualify.

Wrap your entire family in an emergency safety blanket and rest easier knowing you are all taken care of with Emergency Assistance Plus.
