Holidays Don’t Always Go As Planned

Travel insurance can minimise the considerable financial risks of traveling, and although you never know if you are going to need your travel insurance, there is always the possibility of unforeseen events such as accidents, illness, missed flights, lost baggage and more.

Ultimately, you need to ask yourself the most important question: Can I afford NOT to have travel insurance in place?

Take two of our recent claimant’s stories;

Ryan, who recently took a trip to Japan managed to get bitten by a very poisonous spider. He was immediately taken to hospital, where he was admitted immediately. Four days later he was released from hospital with a hefty bill of R40,000! Luckily he had taken out a Complete travel insurance policy from Bidvest Insurance, which settled the entire hospital bill!

Peter’s story was a little different. Peter had saved up for a holiday to Koh Samui in Thailand. Whilst he was there, Peter had planned and organised to go water skiing on a speed boat along the still waters of Thailand’s clear ocean. All was well, that was until Peter lost control whilst skiing and had a traumatic accident. Peter was instantly rushed to hospital where the doctors treated him immediately. Upon further examination, and consultation with the Medical Assistance Company, it was recommended that Peter return home to South Africa for surgery. The assistance company made all the necessary arrangements for Peter to be repatriated back to South Africa. He arrived safely back home and underwent successful surgery. Although his holiday took a turn for the worst, not everything was a total disaster. His Bidvest Complete Travel Insurance Policy covered all expenses incurred, which amounted to a sum of R60,000!

So make sure that when you are traveling abroad, you are comprehensively covered by one of the Bidvest Travel Insurance products. Bidvest Travel Insurance will offer you peace of mind so that you can enjoy your holiday without any worries.
