We are lower 48 U.S. residents looking to travel by RV to Alaska starting May 2022. This is planned to be a slow pleasure trip including driving to the artic ocean. Iā€™m interested if folks have secured evacuation insurance to offset evacuation costs in the event of an accident that would require an evacuation. Have you purchased evacuation insurance and from what company? Have you ever had to use evacuation insurance and what was your experience?

Every time I go on a cruise I purchase it for my wife and I. No, we have never had to use it.Evacuation Insurance.
We usually go with Alliance Insurance, another you might want to look at is Insuremytrip

Are you talking about medical evacuation insurance, or roadside assistance/towing insurance? I'm not entirely sure the latter exists, or at least is commonly available, that would cover costs of towing along, say, the Dalton Highway.

The trip along the Dalton Highway was one of the top few highlights of my trip to Alaska a few years ago. It also was undeniably rough on my motorhome, and made it very, very dirty indeed. In my opinion, the wear and tear was well worth it for the amazing scenery and vastness all around.

Allianz has lots of plans-if we are flying we get a general plan that covers multiple issues.


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

In North America, I would just get very good medical insurance, which should include transport to good hospitals, after your visit to the local hospital. Now for places where the hospitals are of low quality (Africa) I paid Global Rescue, but never needed their services yet.

We have FMCAssist through our FMCA membership:
"FMCAssist is emergency medical evacuation and repatriation coverage available to members worldwide as long as you are more than 75 miles from home. If you are a full-time RVer, you are always considered 75 miles from home. FMCAssist services are also available to members when traveling abroad. Some exclusions and limitation amounts pertain to these benefits."
