Travel safety starts before you step onto the plane.
Travellers can face health and safety trouble abroad, despite having insurance. World Travel Protection proactively helps reduce inherent travel risks by providing access to in-house, practicing clinicians as well as security and logistics experts before you travel. Our team can prepare your organisation’s travellers before heading off to minimise unnecessary risks and ensure travellers, as well as travel managers, are supported in a moment of crisis.
Travel Assistance Services Enhance Your Insurance
When planning a trip for your organisation, it’s important to understand the difference between travel insurance and travel assistance. Travel insurance coverage provides reactive financial protection against situations such as medical emergencies and lost expenses from delays, cancellations, or stolen items.
Travel assistance, on the other hand, helps proactively minimise damage or inconvenience caused by travel disruptions or emergencies that may arise while you’re away. The service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The support is rapid and convenient to access, making it a necessary measure for risk managers who want to ensure duty of care, or travellers who would like an additional layer of support.
How We Support You
Travel assistance can come in many forms. We take a holistic approach to assist you while you are planning the trip and at all stages while your organisation’s travellers are abroad.
We make it simple for you and your organisation’s travellers to receive the personal support they need. Our multilingual staff are available at all hours to support you in the planning process and while you are abroad.
Our clients can access country or region specific information prior to their trip and while on the go. This can include pre-trip information and assistance with inoculation and immunisation, currency exchange, visa requirements, travel advisories and more.
No situation is too complex. After helping over a million travellers like yourself and your team, there are very few situations that we have not seen. We turn our full attention to solve the problem at hand, so you can travel with ease.
