What is the GEOS SAR Membership?

In addition to the IERCC 911/SOS monitoring provided with your supported device (at no cost to you), GEOS offers a Search and Rescue (SAR) Benefit to its members. This special Member Benefit is available for a very affordable annual fee and can insulate you from significant financial impact should you find yourself in an emergency situation most anywhere in the world.

There may be instances where the official response agency doesn’t have the resources they need immediately on hand and would need to contract with private search and rescue resources; the GEOS SAR Membership can help. In some countries, there is either a charge for SAR, or there may be no official agency willing or able to respond, again the GEOS SAR Membership can help.

In these circumstances, the GEOS IERCC will authorize additional resources (including private aircraft/helicopter charter, private search teams, etc.) to provide immediate assistance. The GEOS IERCC always goes the extra mile. If additional resources are necessary in order to ensure your safety, the IERCC will ALWAYS authorize the mission and, since its inception in 2008, over 4,000 lives have been saved in over 130 countries, as a result of IERCC operations.

This is a prepaid private Search and Rescue benefit membership program. Please note that this is not an insurance plan, travel insurance policy or a healthcare plan and, therefore, GEOS will not reimburse members for expenses they incur on their own.

What are the Benefits?

GEOS SAR membership can help ensure your safety or that of your loved ones and for Business Members, your employees for a very modest cost thanks to the tremendous buying power of GEOS.

With GEOS SAR, you can ensure that at the critical time when you or your loved ones may need help fast, GEOS can ensure that if the official emergency services need to be supplemented, additional personnel and equipment (including private aircraft/helicopter charter, private search teams etc.) will be made available through the IERCC.

The GEOS SAR Membership Benefit will provide up to $100,000 per year ($50,000 per incident), or with the NEW SAR 100 Benefit up to $100,000 per incident (Still $100,000 USD per year maximum) to fund the cost of such Search and Rescue operations worldwide (please click on Terms and Conditions for full details of specific territorial limitations and underwriting conditions).

This is a prepaid private Search and Rescue benefit membership program. Please note that this is not an insurance plan, travel insurance policy or a healthcare plan and, therefore, GEOS will not reimburse members for expenses they incur on their own.

NEW ARRIVAL!!! GEOS is pleased to announce the NEW GEOS HIGH RISK Search and Rescue Benefit! The GEOS SAR HR plan is similar to the existing SAR Benefit, however, it reduces many of the restrictions from our regular SAR benefits. GEOS SAR HR still has the annual limit of $100,000 USD.

Available Search and Rescue Benefit Plans

INDIVIDUAL MEMBERSHIP (SAR100)

The GEOS SAR 100 membership benefit offers $100,000 worth of coverage annually, or for a single incident unlike the SAR50 which limits coverage to $50,000 USD per incident. As it is with all of our SAR memberships a GEOS supported device needs to be activated in SOS mode to notify the GEOS International Emergency Response Coordination Center (IERCC) of an emergency incident.

The GEOS SAR 100 membership benefit is available to all owner, users, and individuals traveling with an owner/user of a GEOS supported device.  Coverage under this membership extends to only one individual at a cost of $29.95 annually.

INDIVIDUAL MEMBERSHIP (SAR50)

The individual membership benefit is for individuals who want the membership benefit that the GEOS SAR Membership affords GEOS Members. It is limited to one individual who owns a GEOS supported device and the device must be utilized in the SOS mode to notify the GEOS International Emergency Rescue Coordination Center of an emergency incident. The IERCC will contact the appropriate emergency services to the incident location, based on the location coordinates transmitted from the GEOS supported device.

The Indiviudal SAR benefit membership is available to all owners/users of GEOS supported devices.   Coverage under this plan extends to only one individual at a cost of $17.95 annually.

FAMILY MEMBERSHIP (SAR50 ONLY)

The Family SAR benefit option is for an individual wanting to cover more than one member of their family.  This coverage extends to any member of the family that reside in the same household.  To take advantage of the family membership a minimum of two memberships must be purchased at the same time.  Each membership purchased will be assigned to one individual and is not transferrable.   Coverage under the family plan extends to one individual at a cost of $15.95 annually.

 A GEOS supported device must be utilized in the SOS mode to notify the GEOS International Emergency Rescue Coordination Center of an emergency incident. The IERCC will contact the appropriate emergency services to the incident location, based on the location coordinates transmitted from the GEOS supported device.

BUSINESS MEMBERSHIP (SAR50 ONLY)

The Business SAR benefit option is a transferrable membership that is ideal for organizations that share a GEOS supported device.  Once the membership is purchased it can be transferred as many times as necessary to extend coverage to those in possession of the device.  The business membership requires the administrator of the benefit to manage the benefit to insure the individual utilizing the device is listed as the covered party prior to beginning their activities.   If the organization wants to cover multiple individual’s additional memberships will be required to be purchased for coverage to apply.  Coverage under this plan extends to one individual at a cost of $24.95 annually.

Please note, under the terms of this multiple person membership, all members signing up to this membership service must:

  • be in possession of an active GEOS-connected device or in close proximity to a person possessing such a GEOS-connected device
  • if traveling independently, the traveling member must be in possession of an active GEOS-connected device
  • a GEOS supported device must be utilized in the SOS mode to notify the GEOS International Emergency Rescue Coordination Center of an emergency incident. The IERCC will contact the appropriate emergency services to the incident location, based on the location coordinates transmitted from the GEOS supported device.
  • the GEOS member area, on the GEOS website, must be updated so as to accurately reflect the details of the current member traveling independently with the GEOS-connected device. This is a requirement of the Emergency Services that will greatly assist in rendering assistance

The GEOS IERCC highly recommends that if you are traveling away from home that you add the GEOS MEDIVAC Membership Benefit to your SAR Benefit Program. The combination of these two affordable benefit plans provide you with the most complete coverage available.
