For the first time, Consularcare is enabling insurers to offer 24-hour consular cover to business and leisure travellers in 198 countries
London (PRWEB UK) 31 August 2016
UK-based Consularcare, a pioneering provider of global consular assistance, has announced another partnership to provide consular assistance services through a leading insurer. The announcement sees Consularcare’s ConsularAssist solution included in P J Hayman’ s revamped Travel Plus scheme.
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 solutions provides customers with added value, and immeasurable peace of mind in the event of an incident abroad.
Mike Jones, Consularcare co-founder and Commercial Director, says, “We are delighted that P J Hayman has recognised the benefits ConsularAssist brings to its policyholders and to those marketing its products. It is a unique solution, and the most appropriate new provision in the insurance market for many years. The Foreign & Commonwealth Office is under no obligation to provide consular assistance and in 2014-15, it received over 400,000 consular enquiries but provided personal assistance in just 17,058 cases. Consularcare will bridge the gap between the limited consular support available to travellers, and what they may need in an uncertain and ever-changing global environment.”
Peter Hayman commented: “We decided to include this in our main Travel Plus product which targets the Brokers and mid to High Net Worth customers. In a market that is so often driven by price, our philosophy is to provide the best range of covers and services wherever we can. Consularcare fits this belief. We will be looking to add it to other suitable products.”
Mike Jones sums up, “Travellers may only need consular assistance for something as simple as a lost passport, but there are many more complex and serious scenarios happening every day, such as immigration arrests, victims of crime, acts of terrorism or deaths abroad. It is a testament to the times we live in, that ensuring we have access to dedicated consular assistance is as much of a travel necessity now, as buying cover for medical expenses. For the first time, Consularcare is enabling insurers to offer 24-hour consular cover to business and leisure travellers in 198 countries.”
