Portsmouth, New Hampshire--(January 2011)--"Breaking a leg halfway around the world, having a heart attack in the middle of nowhere, being caught in the middle of a military coup in a third world country—these are the travel scenarios no one likes to think about, yet every traveler should be prepared for," says Mike Thiel, Founder and President of Hideaways InternationalTM, the travel club serving discerning travelers since 1979. "The good news is, you can easily pack for such misadventures, not with what's in your suitcase but what's in your wallet—a membership card to Global Rescue, the world's premier provider of medical, security, and evacuation services."
Hideaways International recently partnered with Global Rescue to bring this peace of mind to its travel club members at a discount. And to kick off this new partnership, it is sponsoring the "Rescue Me Contest," open to any and all travelers.
Travelers can enter the contest at www.Hideaways.com/rescuecontest by submitting a 500- to 1,000-word story about a time they were traveling and could have used Global Rescue's medical, security, or evacuation services. Stories will be evaluated by a panel of Hideaways International judges, and one winner will be selected. Contest submission deadline is April 30, 2011.
The winner of this contest will be able to travel to the far corners of the world with the deals, VIP privileges, and insider information provided by a free one-year Hideaways Aficionado® Club Membership ($195 value), and do so with the peace of mind afforded by a free Global Rescue Annual Family Membership ($579 value).
Complete contest details and the story submission form are available at www.Hideaways.com/rescuecontest.
"When travel is your passion, you might at some point have the misfortune to find yourself in a precarious situation," says Mike. "With Hideaways International and Global Rescue, you can travel in style and be prepared for whatever happens, wherever in the world you wander."
