Travel Insurance:

Travelling abroad and/or outside the borders of South Africa, can be very expensive – that is without even adding the compulsory Travel Insurance on top of that cost.

Travel Insurance protects you against unforeseen circumstances that might leave you out of pocket while away on holiday, with risks such as emergency medical expenses, trip cancellation, lost luggage/baggage, delayed flights and many more. Choose and evaluate your travel insurance options carefully.

Pending your specific circumstances, this may be a specialist area of insurance and we recommend advice is obtained through a reputable Broker - also given the cover options required, as well as various exclusions involved (refer to the policy's Terms & Conditions for specifications), you will need access to specialized insurance advice.
