ConsularAssist has a place in every travel insurance policy, but for backpackers and Gap Year students it really is a must-have
London (PRWEB UK) 30 March 2017
UK-based Consularcare, a pioneering provider of global consular assistance, has announced that its ConsularAssist solution is now included in P J Hayman’s Longstay and Backpacker Travel Insurance.
Mike Jones, Consularcare Co-founder and Commercial Director, says: “We initially announced our partnership to provide consular assistance services through P J Hayman, in June 2016, when it added ConsularAssist to its revamped Travel Plus scheme. We are delighted that the company has recognised the added value ConsularAssist gives to its travel insurance policies and chosen the backpacking community as the next recipients of ConsularAssist.”
Founded in 1990, P J Hayman works closely with insurance underwriters and service providers to create specific solutions to meet client needs. Adding consular assistance to those policies provides customers with added value and immeasurable peace of mind in the event of an incident abroad. Peter Hayman comments: “Having already included ConsularAssist in our main Travel Plus product, we chose our extended stay travel insurances as the next suitable product. Travellers, including backpackers, are often adventurous and keen to experience every aspect of the countries they visit; they can sometimes find themselves in difficult situations in locations that are off the beaten track. Having Consularcare available to assist, will bring them, and their parents, peace of mind.”
Mike Jones sums up: “ConsularAssist has a place in every travel insurance policy, but for backpackers and Gap Year students it really is a must-have. The young travellers may see themselves as invincible, but for the parents and loved ones back home it can be a very worrying time. Many parents have told us that they wave goodbye to their offspring at the airport with a tear in their eye, but a feeling of reassurance that Consularcare is only a phone call away, 24/7.”
