Travel Guard's new Great Outdoors travel insurance plan provides a wide range of coverages and specific sports travel services to help put active travelers' minds at ease." 

Travel Guard customers purchasing the Great Outdoors plan also receive 24/7 access to Travel Guard's travel assistance and emergency services for flight re-bookings, physician referrals, prescription refills and more.  Plus, the Great Outdoors plan includes additional sports-related concierge services like tee time reservations, PGA-professional or hunting and fishing guide referrals, coordination of equipment pick-up and delivery, driving directions, and any other requests active travelers may have.
