It’s a fact of life; chances are you’ll be stuck overseas somewhere when it happens – left in a vulnerable position awaiting your insurer to live up to it’s promise to get you out of whatever situation you find yourself in.

This is where so many unfortunate travelers realize that having had the travel agent arrange their business travel insurance was a big mistake; because they weren’t qualified insurance professionals and had no idea of the type, scope or complexity of cover you really needed – certainly they have no sway with the insurer to get them to move quickly for you. 

Whereas, as professional insurance brokers we’re continually monitoring insurance companies responses to our customer claims; we keep insurers on their toes because they know that they have to treat our customers fairly or they won’t get any more business from us.

We’ll make sure your claim is dealt with quickly; and we won’t leave you stranded – after all you are our client and we want you to remain our client forever.

Arranging Cover

The first thing we’ll do is analyse your business and corporate travel insurance requirements by looking at the:-

  • usual destinations management and staff travel to;
  • types of destinations traveled to; ie third world, civil conflict etc’
  • duration of the average  journey;
  • number of journeys expected in the year;
  • nature of work undertaken;
  • seniority of the travelling management & staff;
  • health issues concerning the travelling management & staff;
  • methods of travel, airlines etc’ or high risk alternatives, ie. helicopters etc’

Every underwriter has different [but similar] information they require when considering providing the travel insurance cover proposed; thus, the more information we can provide that is relevant to their consideration often results in a much better deal for our clients.

Gathering the information and presenting it to underwriters is our job.

Appointing RGIB to arrange your firmís business & corporate travel insurance needs is smart move.
