Global Rescue Travel Insurance

Cascade Mountain Ascents strongly encourages you to enroll in one of Global Rescue’s products prior to your trip.  They offer trip securities that protect you and your program if medical or security emergencies, trip interruptions, or cancellations occur.  Global Rescue provides integrated medical, security, travel risk, and crisis response services worldwide.  You can purchase rescue memberships and travel insurance together or separately.


Global Rescue is a membership-based travel services provider offering medical and security advisory and evacuation services. Their services include worldwide field rescue from the point of illness or injury, medical evacuation to the member’s home hospital of choice, and security extraction in the event of civil unrest, natural disaster, or terrorist attack. Member benefits are active anytime a member is 100 miles or more from home, and Global Rescue should be your first point of contact in the event of an emergency.

This membership and its services are applicable to Cascade Mountain Ascents trips when you desire:

  • Access to medical evacuations during foreign travel from international venues to your home hospital of choice. [Alps etc.]
  • Access to medical evacuations from domestic venues to home hospital of choice when your medical insurance will not cover it. [Alaska, North Cascades, Southwest etc.]
  • Access to mountain rescue in locations where there is not a robust system in place. [Nepal, Peru, etc.]
