REMOTE RESCUE PACKAGE
ACE provides a comprehensive emergency medical package of affordable air and road medical transportation with advanced, rapid response medical care using fully equipped ground and air ambulances for members. 

Medical Aid and Travel Insurance companies take an average of 16 hours before authorising activation of the emergency services. In the event of an accident or medical emergency, delay in treatment can mean the difference between life and death. Rapid deployment of emergency medical services to provide on-site medical attention and transportation to the closest appropriate medical facility can make that difference.

ACE provides a subscription based, advanced medical rescue service. They can activate their team of medical professionals immediately without the need to obtain authorisation from an insurance company. By contacting a single emergency number, ACE members will be speaking to their 24-hour Medical Call Centre.

Different membership packages are available to individuals and families locally or regionally with evacuation to either local or regional medical facilities etc.  Safari Camps can purchase a special yearly package to cover their clients, and holiday-makers in Victoria Falls can purchase membership on a daily rate for as little as $15 per day. 

Please visit the ACE website or e-mail them for more information.
