AOPA Offers Membership in Emergency Assistance Plus (EA+)
As its motto says, “Be prepared for anything.”
AOPA’s Emergency Assistance Plus (EA+) is a worldwide service that provides 24–hour medical assistance and emergency evacuation for travelers. When an accident or illness strikes while traveling throughout the United States or anywhere in the world, a wide range of services is available to help you, including air and ground evacuation.
If you travel at all, even just within the United States, the services EA+ offers are crucial. No one knows when an emergency will happen far away from home and you’ll want the ability to quickly count on resources rather than floundering around wondering what to do. The services EA+ offers include: Medical Evacuation, Medical Assistance, Assistance for Companions, Travel Assistance and Personal Security.
Although you want EA+ on your side in the case of a catastrophic event, remember there are dozens of things that can happen that can delay or ruin a trip. EA+ can help you with lost passports, replace lost or stolen prescription drugs, tap into a 24-hour doctor/dentist/attorney locator service, and emergency cash transfers to name a few. Membership in EA+ provides peace of mind, knowing you will be prepared no matter what comes your way.
With the tremendous buying power of 400,000 AOPA members, AOPA was able to negotiate a great deal with EA+. For a full year of membership, the AOPA member price is just $89, and its $109 to include all of your immediate family. For plan details and to print your application click here.
