GEOS SAR TERMS AND CONDITIONS
GEOS SAR is a prepaid private Search and Rescue membership program and is not an insurance plan, travel insurance policy nor a healthcare plan and, therefore, GEOS will not reimburse members for expenses they incur on their own.
MEMBER BENEFIT LEVEL
For additional necessary and reasonable search and rescue (SAR) expenses (including helicopter with prior approval from the GEOS IERCC), up to US$100,000 per subscriber in any 12 month period with a limit of US$50,000 for any one claim by a member who summons emergency (911/SOS) assistance as a result of an accident or other life threatening circumstance by activating their GEOS-approved device. See Note below.
This entitlement extends for a period not exceeding 72 hours from the time of the call for assistance, which is necessary to prevent further injury or illness or danger to human life as a result of an unforeseeable emergency where the appropriate rescue authorities recommend the dispatch of a Search and Rescue team, and such dispatch is further authorised and provided through the GEOS International Emergency Response Coordination Center (IERCC).
The GEOS SAR entitlement extends all countries of the World subject to the following excluded territories:Excluded territories: -
The entitlement will not apply in the following circumstances: -
- Circumstances which could
have reasonably been anticipated at the date the trip began
NOTE: The GEOS International Emergency Response Coordination Center (IERCC) will not refuse to call out additional emergency response services when advised by 'first responders' that such additional services will be necessary. In such cases where a Member activates their emergency (911/SOS) signal for an emergency and it later transpires that the additional rescue service was not required or covered by the terms and conditions of the Search and Rescue Benefit cover, the member will be liable for the whole cost.
PLEASE NOTE The member must first claim against their existing Medical Insurance. The GEOS Membership Search and Rescue entitlement is for any additional costs incurred or those costs not covered by existing medical cover.
