The Safe Journey Story


International Travel and Healthcare Limited (ITHC) has been providing specialist travel insurance to the UK for more than a decade, and the team has built an excellent reputation – in the industry and with consumers – for exceptional service, as well as specialist cover that’s often hard to find elsewhere.

 

Many policies have age limits for example, or restrict cover for certain medical conditions, but ITHC has created policies that cater specifically to older travellers and pre-existing medical conditions. The group also offers travel insurance tailored to the unique requirements of International Cruising, caravanning, and sports such as golf and fishing.

 

Changing Risks in a Changing World 

Until fairly recently, terrorism cover had never really been an issue in travel insurance policies, and the fact that the majority of UK policies exclude or limit it wasn’t a big deal. The 2015 attack targeting tourists in Tunisia was a turning point for the ITHC team who, led by managing director Kate Huet, decided it was time to change the status quo.

The process comprised extensive research and consultation, and development took into account previous as well as potential risks, in order to provide the most comprehensive cover at the most affordable price for all. During this process, terrorism in Egypt, France, Belgium and Turkey showed the urgent need for terrorism travel insurance – not only for victims and their families directly affected, but for the thousands of travellers indirectly affected by delays, cancellations and disruptions.

 

A Calculated Risk

72dpi - shutterstock_182593169Chances of being killed in an act of terrorism are estimated at one in 9.3 million, so it wouldn’t make sense to stop travelling. In fact, many world leaders argue that continuing to live freely and enjoy our lives is the best way to stand against terrorism! The risk of being affected indirectly is significantly higher though, and for the cost of a coffee or two, it’s worth having full financial protection – just in case.

 

Although we don’t believe in staying home, we also believe you have a right to choose, and Safe Journey includes cover for cancellation if an act of terrorism takes place within 40 miles of your destination, up to 42 days prior to your departure.
