The world is a smaller place and there are millions of us who have relatives that live abroad.
However fit and healthy they are, if a sudden accident or illness, or even death, occurs you want to be with your loved ones as soon as possible.
The last thing you want to worry about when a family member overseas is taken into hospital or passes away is the cost involved with travelling to be with them at short notice. Although in recent years airfares have become more competitive, if you want a flight almost immediately, you’ll end up paying over the odds. For an annual premium, a travel contingency cover will pay for travel and accommodation, including transfers and taxi fares to and from the hospital. It also professionally handles all of the bookings of these through a 24 hour 365 day call.
