International Medical Group (IMG), a global insurance benefits and assistance services company, has announced its new partnership with MAGNUS International Search & Rescue, an emergency management and global on-ground search and rescue service provider based in Israel.
MAGNUS will now offer IMG travel medical insurance plans to travellers, exchange students, and global citizens along with a MAGNUS search and rescue membership. IMG insurance plans will allow MAGNUS customers to have proper medical coverage in the event of an illness or injury while traveling outside their country of residence.
“Global instability is a growing concern for travellers around the world, and with many apprehensive about their safety abroad, they feel the need to take preventative measures when planning their trip,” said Or Lev, MAGNUS Chief Executive Officer. “MAGNUS is here to prioritise the safety of all travellers, and we believe offering IMG travel medical insurance in conjunction with our search and rescue membership will allow our customers to feel as safe as possible wherever their travels take them.”
The MAGNUS suite of services includes crisis response, security risk management, evacuation planning and execution, and 24/7 control centres in Israel capital Tel Aviv, east Africa, Europe, and northeast Asia.
Its global network includes government officials, search and rescue units, private hospitals, helicopter operators, security professionals, and emergency medical teams to ensure local support and rapid assistance to travellers around the world.
The company also utilises tailor-built technology to provide customers with round-the-clock access to emergency response through satellite location tracking, access to safety and medical assistance experts, weather-related alerts, and more.
Tamika Bullock, IMG Sales Service Centre Director, added: “We are proud to partner with MAGNUS to further extend the reach of our best-in-class insurance products to travellers who trust MAGNUS as their search and rescue service provider.
“Reaching new markets with IMG’s safety solutions is a key role in IMG’s strategic growth, and we will continue to seek out strategic partnerships with companies like MAGNUS in the future.”
