entering or exiting a Common Carrier or a Conveyance operated by a military transport service as an emergency replacement for a Common Carrier.

2. The second program which is also free to us is called Chubb Travel Assist. This program puts you in touch with a network of providers that can address the medical and legal needs of travelers. So, if you or a covered family member traveling with you become seriously ill, need a prescription refilled, require a legal referral, or lose your passport when traveling, Chubb Travel Assist can assist you.
