Bruce flew home 1st class, with a nurse...her cost alone, was $9,000.00. We had door to door service. I wonder if there is a way to compare exactly what is done, if one needs to use the medivac or repatriation portion of say Travelex, Travel Guard, etc.

Does anyone know of someone who needed to be airlifted off a ship? I shudder to think how close we came to that possibility.
So I guess it was a good thing you had "Trip" insurance. I couldn't resist.

Take care,
