Companies or organizations that send their employees overseas for business have two options when it comes to Travel Insurance.

First option is to have insurance as an add-on to their tickets. These come as individual cover for each person. The second option is to get Corporate Travel Insurance that protects your employees as a group.

Why is this insurance necessary?

The question should actually focus on WHEN you need this type of travel insurance. With the numerous claims we’have helped our clients with in recent years, Corporate Travel Insurance becomes crucial when employees are being sent to high-risk places.  For instance, non-profit organizations that provide volunteer services to countries with epidemics or ongoing national conflict are considered high-risk.Avu-gfOzbAxU6OQTf0Xja7YoncE7OqHxr8LsF4CZ-sDJ
This insurance is also a more cost-effective means of protecting your company from extra expenses incurred by your staff during the travel period. If it’s a big group, there are policies that offer protection based on headcount instead of specific names (usually for groups of 5 or more).

What does Corporate Travel Insurance Cover?
