Onboard what should have been a dream vacation with my wife, I experienced a life threatening medical situation that prompted our ship captain to change the course of the cruise ship to get me to the nearest hospital. After an initial examination at the local hospital in Mexico it was decided I should be airlifted to a hospital in Florida where I was in the ICU for several days. Once my doctors deemed me fit to travel, Travel Guard coordinated a medical escort to assist me on the flight home. Travel Guard took care of all the flight arrangements and ensured I got home safely. The people at Travel Guard are the best, I really can’t say enough about the professionalism and service I experienced.
