For more than 25 years, Seven Corners has been helping travelers all over the world in various ways with different types of travel insurance.
Seven Corners determined that most travelers who journey outside the United States are primarily concerned with receiving medical treatment if they become sick or hurt on their trip. They also want an easy way to connect with 24/7 travel assistance if they run into an unusual travel mishap. The Seven Corners app helps with both of these scenarios, and it can also be used to access your ID cards, an important item to have when you are traveling.
Visit the app store from your phone and download it. It’s free.
So how would you use the app in a real life scenario?
Say you and your partner are traveling in Munich. You go to dinner, and you gorge yourself on delicious German food. After a meal of Currywurst, Bratkartoffeln, Schnitzel, and several top-notch German beers, you go for a long walk. The evening winds down, and you hop into bed ready to sleep.
Two hours later, you wake up feeling nauseous with pain on the right side of your abdomen. As the night progresses, you feel worse and worse, and you’re worried it could be your appendix. What can you do? You’re in a foreign country, you don’t speak the language, you don’t know how to find a doctor, and you feel terrible.
Luckily, you have the Seven Corners’ mobile app on your phone, so your partner uses it to search for a reputable medical facility nearby. You discover there is a large emergency room five kilometers away, and you quickly head there with your partner.
It turns out your hunch was right, and you have appendicitis, which requires surgery immediately. (Thank goodness you bought travel insurance!)
The emergency room wants to know how you plan to pay for your surgery. This is a common question posed to travelers who seek medical treatment while abroad.
You tell them you have travel insurance, and they need verification of it. Unfortunately, you forgot to pack your travel insurance ID card. Not to worry. You use the Seven Corners mobile app to locate your ID card so you can share it with the hospital.
If you have friends and family who travel outside the United States without travel insurance (gasp!), don’t worry. They can download and use the app to find medical providers even if they didn’t buy travel insurance from Seven Corners.
