International expatriate insurance specialist William Russell has launched a promotion to give away one year’s free global travel insurance to new members taking out an individual GlobalHealth Elite plan for the first time in May 2008.
William Russell’s Global Travel Plan provides cover for baggage, personal effects and other travel insurance benefits during trips of up to 120 days outside the member’s country of residence in addition to the medical expenses and evacuation cover provided by the GlobalHealth Elite plan.
James Cooper, Sales Director, William Russell Limited says: “Our annual travel insurance is the perfect addition to our GlobalHealth Elite plan as it provides complete protection to expats when they are travelling away from their country of residence and pre-booked trips within their country of residence. We are so convinced that our new members will recognise the value of additional travel insurance cover that we’re giving it away free in May to all new GlobalHealth Elite plan members. After their free year members can continue to benefit from our Global Travel Plan at a very low cost because all the medical and evacuation insurance costs are already met by their health insurance plan.”
