5 Ways to Prepare for Common Travel Emergencies

Be ready for common travel emergencies with these important tips.

Even the most prepared vacationer can experience travel emergencies. So, it pays to be prepared. Here’s how to prep for common travel emergencies and keep your vacation on track.

Make Copies

Theft and loss are among the more common travel emergencies. So, make copies of all travel documents and bring them with you—especially your passport. If your passport is lost or stolen, you will need a copy. Also, bring copies of your travel insurance documents and credit cards. But don’t keep them in the same location as the originals! Be ready for anything and send yourself an emailed copy of your documents just in case you lose both your passport and the copy.

Get Travel Insurance

Get travel insurance—and bring the important information with you. We know. Travel insurance isn’t a very exciting thing to think about but it helps so much in travel emergencies. Policies vary by plan and vendor but can cover emergency medical care, medical evacuation, lost or delayed luggage, canceled flights, travel provider issues such as your airline or tour company going out of business, terrorist event, natural disasters and more. When choosing a plan, make sure to select one that’s appropriate for your budget and situation.

Bring First Aid & Medication

When you’re packing, don’t forget to add key emergency items to your list. Create a travel kit with basic first aid and all your medications as well as any emergency medications. Include bandages and antibiotic ointment as well as medication for skin rashes, allergies, stomach bugs and headaches. If you have severe allergies, make sure you have your EpiPenpen on hand. Don’t forget to include calorie-rich food sources like energy bars in case you don’t have access to food.

Educate Yourself

Whenever you’re traveling, familiarize yourself with basic information about your destination. Start with the US Department of State’s travel information. Learn the national emergency numbers at your destination. In the US, we all know to call 911 for emergency assistance. However, 911 isn’t the universal number. Instead, the number varies by country. In an emergency, you may not have time to Google the local number. So, find out where to call in advance. The time you save can literally save your life if you are injured or in danger.

In addition to the emergency numbers, you will also want easy access to other key numbers you might need. These could include bank numbers, travel insurance numbers, your credit card companies, your medical providers, and the local US Embassy. Finally, if you don’t know the local language, you should at least learn some basic terms such as hello, goodbye, and help me.

Whether you’re traveling someplace new or to your yearly timeshare, we hope these tips help you handle whatever comes your way.

Frequently Asked Questions ?

How does PMG get me out of my timeshare contract?

PMG is not a resale, transfer, or donation company. We are consumer advocates—we help to negotiate the release of your timeshare contract obligation. We do not buy, sell, or rent your timeshare. Simply put, we help you to get out of your timeshare contract forever.

How long does the process usually take?

Usually less than 12 months, but it all depends on your situation. If your timeshare is free and clear with no mortgage, then the process may only take 3-9 months.

Speak to your advisor about the time, and what delays the resorts have put into place to prevent timeshare owners from departing their ownership. If you have a mortgage or past due maintenance fee, the process takes more time.

How much is my timeshare worth?

This is probably going to hurt, but whether you paid $5,000 or $50,000 for your timeshare, the IRS values all timeshares as worthless investments. In addition, that timeshare would have negative value due to the annual maintenance fee bill which compounds year after year. That is until PMG helps you cancel your timeshare.

Can I use your service if I still have a balance owed on my mortgage?

Yes. Whether you bought your timeshare 20 days ago or 20 years ago, PMG has a solution for you and is here to help.

Will my name be off the timeshare?

Yes! Permanently! GUARANTEED!

In addition to getting me out of my timeshare, can you recover the money I’ve already spent on mortgage payments and maintenance fees?

While we are able to recover money in rare cases, beware of any timeshare cancellation company that entices you with the promise of fund recovery. The truth is, timeshares are loath to give back the money they’ve already taken.

Are your consumer advocates really “consumer advocates”, or is that just a fancy word for salesperson?

Because most of our clients have had their trust betrayed by timeshare salespeople, we understand how some consumers can become a bit jaded. When you call us for a consultation, that’s exactly what you get, a consultation. At PMG, our job is not to sell you; our job is to help you get out of your timeshare. Which is why we have numerous 5-star reviews and an “A” (excellent) rating from the BCA.

Why should I choose PMG to get me out of my timeshare?

We pride ourselves on providing our customers with the best customer service in the industry. When you contact our company, you speak to a live person, not an automated system or voicemail. We go above and beyond for our customers by helping you to protect your credit and even repair your credit if needed. We offer a 100% money back guarantee, and we can provide documented proof of our success in helping customers just like you.

What happens after I sign up with you? Will I be apprised of your progress?

At PMG, we pride ourselves on our hands-on, boutique-style customer service, so every new client is assigned a case manager whose job is to keep you in the loop throughout the entire cancellation process. Your case manager is always just a phone call away.

How much is your fee?

Not all timeshare experiences are created equal. Some are more complicated than others, and every situation is different. That’s why our trained timeshare elimination consultants will ask you a series of questions designed to determine exactly what needs to be done to terminate your timeshare, how long it will take, and how they can best advocate for you. We will always seek the most cost-effective route for you.

What if I still have more questions?

Canceling a timeshare contract is not a cookie cutter process. With each situation being unique, once you complete the form below an experienced consumer advocate will call you today to discuss your options.
