Air-medical transportation and travel insurance considerations for spring breakers

With spring break coming, over 1.5 million students are expected to hit the beaches and slopes. With so many party-goers gathering in certain spring break hotspots, the possibility of an accident or illness or something has to be considered.

Spring breakers who prefer a single-trip option can choose from Medjet’s short-term memberships starting at $99. For full collegiate program pricing visit
