Road traffic accidents are one of the most common causes of injury and death of Australian travellers.
NSW Health

What is happening?

When you scan the ETD QR Code using the camera of a smartphone (like an Android, iPhone, Widows phone etc.) a browser page on your phone will open and you will see an example of a person's Personal Details and their Medical History. In our example it is 'Joe Citizen' whose personal contact details and travelling details are displayed. His example shows the type of information you can CHOOSE to display. Remember, no-one will ever see that data unless they scan the ETD QR code and to do that, you would have to be unconcious.

Just imagine that YOU are unconscious after an accident or because of a stroke/ heart attack or even being brutally attacked etc either down the street OR overseas. We truly hope that NEVER happens. But what if it did?

The medical history provided will allow doctors to treat you immediately, should you be unconcious, because they will be aware of your allergies and any vital medications you require.

Additionally, your current (home country) doctor's contact information will be available to them if needed.
PLUS, if you provide it, a friend/family contact name and number is available to inform them of your circumstances.

In this case, Joe, the example in the adjacent QR code, has also purchased the Destination by Destination option (an extra AU$11 for 3 months' travel) and so the police and medicos will be able to contact his current accommodation, local contact etc. to inform them of his whereabouts, should the unfortunate case be that he is unconcious or cannot communicate. And, if needed, inform his next accommodation and local contact of his circumstances.

The Destination by Destination option will be handy for medicos to know if there has been an infectious breakout in a previously visited country which might affect Joe's recovery.

This is NOT Travel Insurance but Travel 'Assurance' - Peace of Mind while you are out of your home - even just down the street. So, if things turn bad whilst you are away from home, Emergency Travel Data has your back.

Whenever you are outside your home, and you meet with an event which leaves you unconscious, you need some sort of assurance that whoever finds you in your position of helplessness, can access your (LIMITED) personal and medical details. It could be the Police or the hospital medical practitioners to whom your are delivered. But YOU decide what you would like to disclose and what you do not wish to.

Travelling worldwide is normally SAFE, But what happens to you if YOU:

  • are hit by a car/motorbike and become unconcious?
  • suffer a stroke or heart attack?
  • are waylaid by locals and are unconcious?
  • are affected by ANY event which sees you unconcious or unable to speak and in need of medical assistance?

Your ETD QR code will offer that assurance.

It's FAST to signup (less than 5 minutes) and is VERY affordable AND it's LIFELONG.

Also, police/medical staff can be advised of each of your contacts in each destination you travel. Without a fuss, your local contact can be called to assist you in whatever way is needed. You can even name the accommodation so that they can be informed.


Worldwide Coverage

Because this is a QR code which can be used by any smart phone or iPhone which has native QR scanning in any country, you are covered worldwide in case of an emergency.

Because of the COVID pandemic, many people have become used to using their phone's camera to scan a QR code. This is NO different. Simply scan the QR code provided using a phone's camera and all of your (LIMITED) medical details and, if you so choose, your local contact and accommodation details will be available to the police/medicos.

There are some phone brands/models which do not have native QR code scanning ability. If yours is one of those, it does not matter. One of the police or medicos will have one and that is what is important. However, if your phone does not scan QR codes, you probably already know because it did not work during the COVID pandemic. No problems! Simply download a QR scanner app from Google Play Store or Apple Store. For your phone to scan the ETD QR code is not important but it is nice to see it work.

Travelling for many people can be a once-off event. They only need to be covered for a short time. For others, they may be cruising around the world and so need to record their local contacts or local phone at each destination. Alternatively rather than a small, once-off holiday, some travellers would like the comfortable knowledge that they have their medical records at hand whenever they travel even if it is just going out for the day or just down the street.

There are 2 options:

  • Medial Records ONLY - AU$33 per person - for lifetime access
  • Medial Records (lifelong AU$33) AND Destination by Destination information
    add AU$11 per person - 3 month limit

So simple and easy to use!
 Sign up now 

Simply keep the QR code in your purse or wallet. Or glue it to the back of your phone or keep it in your phone case. Maybe do all three. The QR code is yours to do with as you wish. You can even make it your phone's home screen!

That way when an incident happens, and if you are unresponsive, police will check your property to see who you are. The QR Code will be labeled "Police - Doctors SCAN Me". Police will immediately have all the information they need and the medicos will be able to immediately know what medications, complications - anything at all! that you have chosen to disclose to them.
