Your dedicated Crisis Assist Consultant will talk you through the next steps:
"stay in your room, lock the door and only open it when we arrive" OR
"we’ve arranged for a car to take you to the airport. Go to the back door of the hotel and the car will be waiting" OR
"we have contacted the hotel and the situation has been contained by the Police and you are able to stay there until the airport re-opens and we will get you on the first scheduled flight"
The range of responses is endless as every situation is different.

What about travel insurance?
Travel insurance will reimburse the costs of unexpected medical expenses, trip cancellation and range of other losses but it will not provide immediate crisis support or remove you from an imminent situation.
