How You Can Use Global Travel Plus While Back on Campus This Semester


Whether you’re leaving home for school for the first time or returning to campus after months of virtual classes, Global Travel Plus’ services cover you if you are traveling more than 100 miles away from home or to another country. We encourage all students to download the Global Travel Plus mobile app to utilize our services if they encounter a medical or travel emergency while away from home. Read on to find out how you can use Global Travel Plus this semester.

Accessing Global Travel Plus’ services is as easy as tapping a button when you download our Mobile App. The Tap-for-Help button immediately connects you to our 24/7 Emergency Operations Center no matter where you are in the world. You can also find travel information to review before leaving for your destination, whether it’s your campus or a vacation to another country, as well as a Travel Status Indicator to let you know when you are eligible for services.

Some of us know how frustrating it is when your suitcase does not appear on the carousel after a flight. If you lose your luggage while traveling to campus or on vacation, we will work with airlines to recover and deliver lost bags so that you can enjoy your travels or focus on your studies stress-free.

While on campus, students have access to medical referrals in many situations. Those students who attend a school far away from home may not be familiar with the medical facilities local to their campus. Whether you wake up with a sore throat, need to visit a doctor regarding a pre-existing medical condition, or are looking for a referral to a mental health professional, you can contact us for assistance with a medical referral to a local doctor, urgent care, or hospital.

We understand that it may be stressful for a student to be hospitalized away from their family. If you are traveling alone and expected to be hospitalized for at least seven days, we will arrange and pay for the transportation of a loved one to join you.

While we always hope for the best when traveling, emergencies can happen at any time. If you are sick or injured and require assistance returning home, Global Travel Plus is there to help. Once medically cleared for commercial travel by Global Travel Plus’s consulting physicians and medical transport evaluators together with the attending physician, Global Travel Plus will arrange for commercial transportation to your home residence or to a medical or rehabilitation facility near your home residence. When medically required, Global Travel Plus will also provide medical supervision during transport.
