Great question. We can tell you to plan!
If an accident happens while you’re abroad, your captain and crew are fully prepared to perform basic first aid and bring you to the nearest hospital. Your yacht is equipped with medical supplies and the contact info to local emergency services. For even more peace of mind, your private boat has a dedicated medical officer aboard with advanced medical knowledge.
Even the most experienced travels should brush up on travel insurance options once in a while. Traveling abroad often carries the risk that your medical insurance from home won’t cover you.

You can compare the different plans and pick one that suits your needs.

Medical Evacuation Insurance pays for emergency care and transportation. It can be purchased separately or as a part of your travel insurance policy.
Travel Health Insurance covers emergency and routine services while overseas. Find out if your health insurance provider offers emergency coverage abroad.
Travel Insurance varies significantly between providers. Read the fine print for coverage details (Medical transport back to the US, emergency care, duration of travel, etc.)
DAN is insurance specifically for SCUBA divers. It protects against unexpected expenses while traveling.

Travel insurance is always a good idea.
Basic insurance coverage ranges from four-to-seven percent depending on your getaway of choice and type of insurance required. In some cases, your yacht charter might require insurance.
Make sure you inform the captain and crew of any pre-existing medical conditions. When you give your charter yacht a head’s up, they can prepare for any possible emergencies.
If you believe there’s any risk your condition may require treatment abroad, bring a letter from your doctor that details your condition and treatment plan. Another great idea is to keep a note of medical necessity in your purse or wallet.
