Travelling for Royal Roads? Pack iSOS
Royal Roads University has partnered with International SOS (iSOS), a service that provides medical, safety and security assistance for international travellers.
Faculty, associate faculty, staff, students and contractors travelling outside Canada for Royal Roads-related research, class trips, teaching or business can use iSOS. The assistance program can help you 24 hours a day, seven days a week during your trip, with no charge to you.
- a website with comprehensive health and security information about your travel destination;
- a mobile app and email service that will send you timely medical and security updates on your destination;
- doctors and security experts you can call while travelling to get professional medical or security advice;
- emergency medical care and coverage coordination; and
- when necessary, help with emergency medical care beyond your travel insurance coverage.
iSOS is not a travel insurance provider. In case of medical emergency, iSOS can help coordinate your care and coverage. When necessary, it can also help with emergency medical care beyond your travel insurance coverage.
Connect with Student Services or your program associate for iSOS information before traveling for class trips.
Students will still need to buy medical travel insurance.
Faculty and staff
For faculty and staff, Manulife, Royal Roads University’s benefit insurer, provides medical emergency travel assistance coverage up to $5 million per lifetime for faculty, staff and dependents. (Depending on your destination or your planned activities, you may want to consider purchasing additional travel medical insurance.)
Contact Jessica Subin at Finance for iSOS information before you travel.
Associate faculty and contractors
Associate faculty, contact Jessica Subin at Finance for iSOS information before you travel. Contractors, connect with your line manager.
Associate faculty members and contractors will still need to buy medical travel insurance.
