Actually, if you're going into underdeveloped areas, MiniMed will give
you a loaner pump to take along. I traveled to Poland and Romania last
summer, and I had the loaner with me for a month. When I got home, I
sent it back in the prepaid mailer. 

If you travel into such areas regularly and frequently, maybe MiniMed
would give you a permanent loaner -- a refurbished 506 -- to tide you
over in case of malfunction.

Wouldn't hurt to call them and see.
