All Apple products come with global repair coverage, you don’t specially need ProCare for Apple to perform repair on your Mac in another country. Both AppleCare and ProCare includes global coverage by default, no need to shop for some special numbers while buying your product, Apple doesn’t classify its systems through product/machine type like lenovo does, neither there are stickers on Apple offerings.
For keeping things simple and well-organized, for the last 3 years Apple warranty is being rated the best by consumers:-

Though no rocket science but not all minds can be as visionary as the man behind Apple.
My writing this is simply for enlightening purpose without any objectifying judgment involved, consider them from a critic who wants to see competitors do well in the market too.
Thanks for your comments Adamneb,
My only point with Pro Care is that, as a Pro Care member, I can walk into any Apple Store worldwide and get immediate, priority service on my notebook.
As a business traveler, I cannot tell you how much I value this Apple service.
If I were travelling abroad, and if my MacBook Pro notebook were to fail, I could walk into any Apple Store for immediate service, or I could have my notebook sent in to Apple for immediate service.
If I were travelling abroad, with my ThinkPad, and if my ThinkPad notebook were to fail, I would have to cancel, or struggle through, my meetings and fly home for service.
ThinkPads are business tools for businessmen. Therefore, they should be the easiest notebooks on the market to service globally. I hope to see that in the future.
