Bikini Travel Insurance offers insurance cover designed by women for women and has been developed with the female traveller – and the way they travel and the things they carry – in mind.
It covers the things you would expect to see like medical and repatriation cover, cancellation and curtailment and cover for partners and kids, but it is the female-skewed specialist items and areas that can be added to this basic service that set this company apart.
Crisis response service: If you found yourself in a destination that was declared unsafe would you want your own personal security detail to come to the rescue? One call to the Bikini Personal Security 24/7 rescue number and that is exactly what will happen. Whether you have lost your passport, had your personal security threatened or find yourself in an emergency cash situation as a result of being robbed, Bikini has security experts on standby to resolve issues – from liaising with local authorities to making arrangements to get you to a place of safety.
Charlotte Lee Field, who designed the policy, comments: “This has been a great opportunity to think hard about travel insurance policies from a female perspective and design-in feminine features that you just cannot get elsewhere.”
Bikini consulted seasoned global traveller and Olympic hopeful Chemmy Alcott when developing their specialist travel insurance offering. One of the world's elite female ski racers and a three-time Olympian, Chemmy’s quest for more speed means she constantly travels the world in pursuit of snow and so has a unique perspective on the needs of the female traveller. Now the face of Bikini, Chemmy is continuing her quest for her fourth Olympics in 2014.
