)-- When one travels, they typically make airline reservation and hotel accommodations in advance. A rental car is reserved in advanced and even RV road trips are planned in advance. Typically, they don't plan for emergencies or accidents in advance.
What happens if you are camping in the Nevada Mountains and you break your leg? Are you prepared if you are in another country and suddenly have an unexpected emergency health condition? If you are on a long distance road trip and need emergency medical care back in your home state, how will you get your vehicle and belongings back safely?
It is amazing with the number of travelers in the United States that only a small percentage are proactive and prepared for emergencies or accidents such as these when they are away from home.
Masa Assist has taken the initiative to begin educating travelers around the world, on how important it is to plan and be prepared for the unexpected emergencies that can arise. Masa Assist, unfortunately, experiences and hears stories from of all walks of life — business men and women, retired seniors or even those who live in very secluded rural areas. Why? MASA Assist is a forty-one year old established international organization that is dedicated to providing its 1,000,000+ members with the best and most affordable lifesaving, emergency transportation and assistance while they are at home, on the job, or traveling the world.
Masa Assist not only wants to educate worldwide travelers on how potential emergencies can arise, but also to inform them on how to achieve peace of mind when traveling. Especially when peace of mind can be obtained easily and affordably.
With the worldwide travelers best interest at heart, Masa Assist constantly expands their offerings. Until recently, Masa Assist offered a 3-day minimal short-term membership, a yearly membership and a lifetime membership to individuals or families.
