When travelling for business reasons or for pleasure, the last thing that anyone needs are problems while travelling. At a time when visa controls and government regulations require more stringent cover to minimise their own risk, an all-encompassing travel plan is of benefit to so many travelers for so many reasons.
Travel insurance is generally intended to cover emergency medical expenses, and other losses incurred while traveling, either within one’s own country, or internationally. Temporary travel insurance can usually be arranged at the time of the booking of a trip to cover exactly the duration of that trip, or a “multi-trip” policy that can cover an unlimited number of trips within a set time frame.
The most common risks covered by travel plans include, but are not always limited to; emergency medical treatment, emergency evacuation, trip cancellation, delayed fights and lost or delayed baggage.
At RAK Insurance, we have designed a product that covers most eventualities while on travel such as: emergency medical treatment; emergency evacuation, repatriation of mortal remains, compassionate visit, telephone medical advice and delivery of essential medicines, trip cancellation, lost baggage, legal assistance and personal accident benefits. The cover is transparent in line with our core values to allow the customer to relax in the knowledge that everything is covered during their travel and to know that what is required meets or exceeds their needs and expectations. Customers are offered standard travel insurance with additional cover that may be added depending on client’s requirement with the exceptions that include winter sports or pre-existing medical conditions.
