Jun 01, 2016

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (March 28, 2016) - MedjetAssist, a world leader in medical, security and crisis response, recently unveiled two convenient mobile applications for travelers on the go.  The free Apple iOS Wallet card (formerly known as Apple Passbook) and WiMedjet, a broadband communications app, are designed to offer convenience and ease of use for those members.

The Medjet Apple Wallet card is a digital way for globetrotting Medjet members to retrieve their information on the fly without the hassles of accessing a card from an actual wallet when traveling.  This instant accessibility makes it easier for distressed members or loved ones to put Medjet’s unprecedented suite of security, health and travel services into action if the situation necessitates.   

According to a recent survey commissioned by and Egencia, more than 66 percent of worldwide travelers said they consider their smartphones the most essential item, even ahead of their toothbrush and driver’s license. In addition, 84 percent of travelers said they want to access information from anywhere; 60 percent do not “unplug” on leisure trips; 60 percent won’t go on vacation without a mobile phone; and 63 percent sleep with their phone next to their bed on vacation.

“From booking trips to storing information, our membership base relies on their smartphones for everyday use, especially when traveling near and far,” said Roy Berger, president and CEO of MedjetAssist.  “The more well-connected and comforted our members feel from the simplicity and convenience of a Medjet Wallet card, the more they can focus on enjoying their travels.”

Existing MedjetAssist members can download the Medjet Wallet card free of charge by going to New MedjetAssist members will receive an electronic confirmation letter or they can visit The e-card contains myriad features including:  membership type and identification number; U.S. and international direct link dial numbers for assistance; a remaining countdown clock to membership expiration; a renewal link; an option to turn on push notifications of renewal notices and special membership deals; and a listing of benefits.  There is also a function that allows users to forward their information to others as either a PDF or as a Wallet card.
