‘They absolutely took care of everything’

Tom and Deanna Jones, both Ripcord Rescue Travel Insurance clients,  were on a cruise off the coast of Africa when she fell and broke her wrist. A Redpoint medical team met them at the gangway in Zanzibar, and escorted them to Cape Town South Africa.

“When you’re in the middle of the Indian Ocean, and you have no idea whether you should get out in Kenya, Madagascar, or wherever,” Tom said, “having an operations team that’s working with you and for you, really made it comforting for us.”
