Book an air ambulance.

Medevac flights by helicopter or air-ambulance flights by fixed-wing aircraft come at considerable cost—$20,000 and more within the United States, and as much as $100,000 or more from a foreign country. Read your health insurance policy carefully, and before you travel, look into a few evacuation services and have a number handy on your trip. After all, no one ever expects to need emergency evacuation, but it pays to know the number to call if you do.
