One of the nation’s premiere big game outfitters and sport fishing resources, Bluewaterbiggame.com has begun to offer the Air Rescue Card for hunters and anglers.
Travel Assist Newtork’s Air Rescue Card provides emergency medical transportation for cardholders, in the event of an injury or illness while traveling.
The product is perfect for Blue Water Big Game due to their specialized travel packages, which allow sports-lovers to enjoy world-class fishing and hunting.
Some of the best hunting and fishing takes place in very remote locations. Good for sport, bad for medical attention.
These activities also include a certain level of risk. Due to the nature of these sports, those taking part are at higher risk of injury or accident.
From the PR.com Press Release:
