Consumer Alert: Diners Club Emergency Evacuation Coverage

Diners Club members are now offered the opportunity to enroll in the Emergency Evacuation Assistance program, which promises to pay for transportation costs incurred when an enrolled member requires transport to a medical facility and no adequate local facility is available.

The "low annual fee" for this service (never referred to as insurance in the brochure) is $129 for one person, or $259 for the family plan. This provides $100,000 of coverage per person, provided you have paid the entire common carrier fares with your Diners Club card.

Questionable value, unquestionably high price
