Scheduled Airline Failure Insurance (SAF)
Schedule Airline Failure insurance protects many of our clients in the event of an airline going out of business. Selective Asia offers this cover free of charge through our corporate policy. The cover applies to any scheduled airline flight ticket (i.e not low-cost operators such as Air Asia) that originates in the UK and is protected under our ATOL license which will be clearly marked on your invoice. The insurance becomes valid only once a ticket has been paid in full and issued . This is not a travel insurance policy.
