It is essential that every Selective Asia guest arranges comprehensive travel insurance cover for the duration of their holiday. Travel insurance is a vital part of any travel plans, helping to ensure your safety, wellbeing and financial security if things go wrong, both before you depart and whilst you are away.
The most important features of your travel insurance policy should be comprehensive cover for medical expenses, emergency repatriation and personal legal liability.
Additionally, comprehensive cover for the following is advisable in order to minimise your financial exposure in the event of unforeseen problems either prior to departure or whilst away:
- Cancellation prior to departure
- Luggage, personal items and money
- Personal accident cover
- Legal expenses
UK law dictates that Selective Asia, as with many other tour operators, cannot arrange travel insurance directly for our clients anymore (despite many years of successfully doing so!). This law stipulates that travel insurance can now only be provided by licensed operatives.
The travel insurance policy that we recommend is provided by Campbell Irvine and is underwritten by AXA Insurance UK Plc. It has been specifically designed for our holidays and is available to all clients worldwide.
To arrange your Campbell Irvine Travel Insurance Policy
To arrange your Campbell Irvine travel insurance please either telephone 020 7938 1734 or visit www.campbellirvine.com.
You should provide your 4 digit Selective Asia booking number as reference in order that your policy is tied in with all your other travel plans.
You do not have to take this policy and many of guests will have an existing policy or may choose to obtain cover elsewhere. However it is essential that you check the validity and levels of cover you may already have. In particular, be very wary of the validity and levels of cover offered by credit cards, home insurance or private health insurance.
Your travel insurer must be able to provide a 24 hour emergency assistance number.
In the event of a claim arising, contact your insurer as soon as possible to make them aware of your situation and that a claim will be arising.
Keep as much paperwork and supporting documentation as possible, including any medical bills, receipts and police reports.
