SALEM, N.H., March 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the U.S. Travel Association, mature travelers represented 21 percent of all leisure travelers in 2010.  On Call International, a leading provider of medical, security and travel assistance has decided to offer the premiere solution for these seniors – the Mature Membership – available to travelers from 77 to 85 years of age.

Specializing in worldwide emergency medical evacuations – which can cost up to $20,000 domestically and $100,000 internationally – On Call's memberships are designed to safeguard travelers from unnecessary and expensive medical transportation costs and ensure access to top medical care and comprehensive travel assistance anytime a traveler is more than 50 miles away from home.

"We've noticed multigenerational travel to be a huge trend in 2010; the U.S. Travel Association saw a 32 percent increase in seniors traveling with their children and grandchildren, up from 22 percent in 2007. Our Mature Membership provides vital coverage to this often underserved age group by extending the age limit for membership; ensuring help is a phone call away any time you need assistance while traveling," said Michael J. Kelly, President and CEO of On Call International.

Starting at $425, memberships are available on an individual or family basis. A spouse or domestic partner can also be included in a family plan. The mature membership is available for purchase through www.OnCallInternational.com/enroll.
