An emergency shouldn't cost you
But that’s exactly what could happen if you find yourself in an accident or medical emergency and need an ambulance to treat you and take you to hospital.
With only a one-day waiting period, you could save hundreds of dollars – at a time when money’s the last thing you’d want to be worrying about.
