The help you need, when you need it.
No two people are alike: we all handle situations differently. Dealing with a traumatic event might leave you needing someone to talk to. The Bidvest Insurance Panic Alert policy offers you the benefit of getting professional counselling if and when you need it.
Trigger incidents are called that for a reason: they leave you triggered. The post-traumatic stress of an incident might be too much to deal with. With Bidvest Insurance Panic Alert, you have professional counselling of up to R2000 per incident.
We are constantly improving our services to make sure that you get the best from your insurance. This is just another way to show that we care about our clients and their wellbeing.
What is a trigger incident for Panic Alert?
There are four main types of trigger incidents for which Panic Alert will cover you:

How much am I covered for?
The Bidvest Insurance Trauma Counselling benefit offers up to R2 000 cover for counselling, to help you deal with the after effects of a crime.
