Gear Junkie calls Ripcord the ‘most comprehensive service of its kind’

‘A titan of the insurance industry’

“Ripcord is the most comprehensive service of its kind,” according to an article this month in Gear Junkie magazine. “Backed by Redpoint Resolutions, a titan of the insurance industry, its policies cover everything from lost luggage to emergency extractions in far-flung corners of the globe. Whether you’re pinned down by a winter storm or rebel gunfire, Ripcord will get you home in one piece. And that’s not hyperbole: It really did save a client from a rebel shootout in the Central African Republic.”

“For many years, people had to buy one policy to cover their basic travel needs and another for medical evacuation or rescue services. Aside from the added expense, it invites potential headaches in the event of a filed claim. Overlapping policies are a hot-potato adjuster’s excuse to deny payment. With Ripcord, one plan covers everything from a lost passport to a five-alarm emergency.”

The author, Christophe Noel, was on a motorcycle tour of Southern Patagonia last year when one of his travel companions suffered a bad crash and broken bones. From first-hand experience, he knows the value of  comprehensive protection.

“When that day came, I realized how quickly a fun-filled dream vacation turns into a nightmare,” he wrote. “Even if the only disaster to occur is a delayed plane or missing bag, travel insurance is nice to have. The next time I crawl into a ditch and notice my friend has two more elbows than he should, I’ll know to pull the Ripcord.”
