In their near decade-long history, Ecuador Freedom Bike Rental has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to the satisfaction and safety of their guests. Aligning with Ripcord Rescue Travel Insurance ensures riders are covered in the event of a travel mishap or accident. Unlike many travel insurance policies, Ripcord is perfect for motorcycle travel as it excludes limitations on engine size. 

In our pursuit to provide nothing but the best resources and services to our guests, the collaboration with Ripcord Rescue Travel Insurance was an easy choice,” explained Court Rand, co-founder of Ecuador Freedom Bike Rental. “Now our guests can enjoy Ecuador knowing travel setbacks, no matter how big or small, are covered under one extensive policy.” 

Founded by former military special ops personnel, Ripcord offers more coverage and services than any other single policy available. Backed by Redpoint Resolutions, Ripcord covers everything from a lost passport or canceled or interrupted trip, to delayed or canceled flights, to full-blown rescue and medical evacuation services. 

Ripcord’s coverage starts at the point of injury or illness. If a motorcyclist has a medical emergency in a remote location, anywhere in the world, Redpoint will evacuate that client from that location to, first, a local medical facility for stabilization – while Redpoint’s team of physicians oversee their diagnoses and care – and then all the way home to their home hospital of choice if needed. Redpoint is even able to deploy one of its highly trained paramedics or nurses to the client’s bedside at the local hospital to help at every step of the way and escort them home. Comprehensive travel insurance with Ripcord includes that medical evacuation service in every policy, along with coverages for trip cancelation, trip interruption, accidental medical expenses, missed connections, lost baggage and much more.
