Travel Guard provides free assistance to Greek cruise ship evacuees

AIG Travel Guard will provide emergency travel services free to evacuees of the Sea Diamond cruise ship after it ran aground and began taking in water off the Greek Island of Santorini on Thursday. Of the 1,200 passengers aboard, three-quarters are American, including many groups of U.S. college students.

Family members of the evacuees can call Travel Guard's world service center at 800/826-1300 for assistance in contacting or relaying messages to their family members that were evacuated, as well as coordinating cash wire transfers, help with rebooking travel back home, finding alternative lodging, locating important travel documents that may have been lost or left behind during the evacuation process, and more. Evacuees can use Travel Guard's toll-free number for assistance: 00800.1809.201.2429, account code 911911#.
