Sickness sinks trip to see the giant tortoises

A Los Angeles couple and their three children were about two weeks away from a luxury adventure in Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands when their 20-year-old daughter began to feel feverish. She was diagnosed with acute mononucleosis, and therefore would have to miss out on condor viewing and horseback riding in the Andes, as well as the islands’ marine iguanas, volcanic tunnels, and famous giant tortoises.

It also meant that the family would have to forfeit the nearly $14,000 they paid for her trip.

As Cavalry comprehensive travel insurance clients, they submitted a claim, and Cavalry reimbursed them the full amount.

Cavalry combines the best medevac insurance with travel insurance benefits such as trip cancellation, trip interruption, lost baggage, primary medical expense coverages, and more. Cavalry is powered by Redpoint Resolutions, a medical and travel risk security company owned and operated by special operations veterans and physicians.

Redpoint covers almost 10 million people worldwide and has evacuated clients from all seven continents.
