Once registered, this system allows travelers to receive Pre-Trip Advisory emails and Automatic Pushed Alerts from ISOS tailored to their travel destination(s). 

  • Pre-Trip Advisory - Travelers, who register a trip and include flight information, can expect to receive a Pre-Trip Advisory email from ISOS with information and links relevant to each of their destination countries. It is important that you review these carefully and comply with any directives that might be embedded within the email message.
  • Automatic Pushed Alerts - Travelers, who register a trip and include flight information (it is crucial to enter complete flight itineraries, including return trips), will now automatically receive real-time Alert emails directly from ISOS regarding destination countries. These will stop when the registered trip concludes.

Before departing for your travel experience, you should register your trip details using ISOS MyTrips. You should include as much detail as possible regarding your trip (all flight segments, lodging, ground transportation, or other local transportation). Through your account, you will be able to update and revise any information as necessary.

Why should I register my travel?

Registering with MyTrips allows our partner International SOS to provide you with direct information based on where you may be going. This includes:

  • Pre-Trip Advisory - Before you depart, ISOS will send a Pre-Trip Advisory email with information and links relevant to each of their destination countries. 
  • Automatic Pushed Alerts - In the event that there are Travel Updates, Medical Alerts, and/or Special Advisories for your destination, you be able to receive real-time Alert emails directly from ISOS regarding your destination.
