New! - The Membership App puts international travelers and expatriates in direct contact with International SOS physicians, nurses, security, operations, logistics and aviation experts. In an emergency – or for routine advice – the team of dedicated and caring professionals, as well as the global network of nearly 60,000 vetted providers, are only a click away.
Benefits for travelers:
• In time of need, travelers can quick dial for immediate help from an International SOS alarm center, whether it's for an emergency or just for advice.
• It gives easy access to timely medical and security alerts for each user's location, so travelers and expatriates are kept aware of changing situations and can quickly adjust plans as needed.
• It supplements the International SOS membership card, ensuring your international travelers always have their membership number with them.
