The Health Insurance Group covers you for business and pleasure

No extra premium to pay with flexible business and holiday travel insurance

The Health Insurance Group has teamed up with Voyager Insurance Services Ltd to offer a simple, flexible travel insurance product that meets a wide range of needs, whether for business or holiday.  With no additional premiums charged for leisure, business or even cruise trip insurance, The Health Insurance Group’s specialist policy is competitively priced, yet offers one of the most comprehensive travel cover options available in the UK today.

“We’re thrilled to be introducing this type of policy, as not only is it rare to find travel insurance that is suited to both the needs of business people and holidaymakers but it is rarer still to find one available to all EEA residents,” commented Sarah Dennis, Head of International at The Health Insurance Group.  “The cover is simple to purchase online and available with discounts for groups.  It is particularly attractive to companies with multi-national staff as it can be bought at the last minute or even after departure if someone had forgotten to arrange, and in bulk or individual.”

Insurance options include single trips and long stays, as well annual multi-trip policies where all family members named can travel separately.  Business trips are covered as standard at no extra charge but a Business Plus option offers enhanced protection for business equipment (tablets, laptops, smartphone or AV) or replacement personnel.

All travel insurance policies include up to £10 million in medical cover and £5,000 cancellation or curtailment.  £3,000 holiday financial protection, £1,000 missed departure and journey disruption, £2,000 baggage and £500 personal money cover are included as standard.

Additional cover options can be added to include 100+ sports and activities, enhanced trip disruption if someone is not travelling with a tour operator, Cruise Plus cover for missed-port benefit or cabin confinement and wedding insurance.

For more complex insurance requirements, simple online medical screening allows cover for any pre-existing medical conditions.

Added Dennis, “We’re not offering standard travel insurance but a premium standard ‘all-in-one’ policy that gives full protection and peace-of-mind – offering the best of both worlds without any added complexity.”
