High-Risk Destination Travel Insurance
Covers War Zones, Crisis Zones, Disaster Relief Zones and other high-risk regions.
Cover is designed for travelling professionals, such as Journalists, Aid Workers, Interpreters, Volunteers, Engineers, Students etc, needing to travel to high-risk regions such as Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, or parts of countries such as Egypt, India, Pakistan.
Mainstream travel insurance policies always have exclusions regarding cover for travel to regions where the FCO advise against “All Travel To” or “All But Essential Travel To”. Many policies are invalidated if you choose to visit these regions, or at best, they will only cover you for incidents that are not connected to the circumstances that have given rise to the FCO advice.
Our High-Risk Voyager travel insurance policy is designed to provide cover where others will not. On this policy, cover is available for UK and EU (EEA) residents for Medical Expenses up to £1,000,000 including Repatriation and Evacuation, and including PTSD Assessment & Counselling following a hostile event, with a 24 hour 24/7 helpline, staffed by experienced coordinators. Policy holders are given access to a downloadable “One Tap” emergency app and Pre-Trip Country Files (see details of One Tap App below).
This policy offers cover for durations of up to one year for business trips or 31 days for leisure trips. There are two cover levels – Standard £300,000 Medical, or Enhanced £1,000,000 Medical. The policy is modular, giving you the opportunity to add optional cover for Baggage, Cancellation, Delay, Passport, Personal Accident compensation, Personal Liability etc, at extra cost.
Apart from the above single trip policies, there is also an Annual Multi-Trip version of cover, for frequent travellers. This covers unlimited trips, as long as no individual trip exceeds 31 days.
High-Risk Voyager Travel Insurance can even be arranged after departure, with conditions, if you have discovered that your normal insurance is not adequate for the region you are visiting.
These policies are underwritten at Lloyds of London.
