More about Everything.Insure and GEAR
A travel assistance membership that focuses on emergencies.
A point of incident solution, specifically designed to see you through a crisis.
Why should you trust?
Powered by SPS Global Assistance Group GEAR is a travel assistance membership designed to assist members in an emergency. Focusing on proactive risk management for global travellers. Our dedicated security teams provide consultation and evacuation services for our members when they are in danger - anytime and anywhere.
Medical protection for the entire family
GEARx provides comprehensive emergency medical assistance for travellers and expatriates around the world. Depending on your membership level, we will provide medical evacuation and repatriation to either the nearest hospital or medical facility equipped to handle your condition, or to your home country. While most assistance companies provide medical reparations from the source country hospital to the home country hospital, we go that step further and specialise in medical assistance and evacuations from the point of incident.
Designed to provide total care
Our tele-medical service, GEARx Consult, is available to you for mild to acute medical issues. Our in-house practicing medical team of doctors and nurses is available 24/7 to listen to your symptoms (by phone, chat or video), and will advise you on the most likely cause. They will provide clear and simple advice, guidance, and medicines (although local regulations may limit this service to medical advice ONLY).
GEAR Tech is included with every membership, providing a panic button and direct access to the Global Response Centre with location-based alerts. GEAR Tech also provides access to country specific advice, including recommended vaccinations, security and medical
information, cultural ‘dos and don’ts’, language, climate, visa and passport requirements, travel and transportation advice, currency converter, public holidays and festivals.

Travel insurance is primarily designed to provide financial protection against routine travel issues, such as trip cancellation and local medical bills. GEAR is a membership program that has been specifically designed to help you in extraordinary situations, including a life-threatening travel crisis, or a security emergency. You may find that some travel insurances include these services, but none specialise in handling these types of incidents on a daily basis.
