Insuranceopedia Explains Remote Transportation
For example, a person may need remote transportation if they have a rock climbing accident in a foreign country and become injured. In this situation, a helicopter may have to be flown in to rescue and transport the person to the nearest hospital for treatment. Remote transportation coverage from a travel or health insurance policy would cover the costs up to the policy limits.
