ESCAPE WIntEr What to do during the June and July school holidays
Protect yourself when you travel
ravel insurance is absolutely essential these days. You simply cannot afford to be caught without it if something goes wrong on your trip. Medical costs alone could spiral up to hundreds of thousands of rands. And what happens if you fall ill before you go and have to cancel your trip? Travel Guard Travel Insurance covers unexpected medical expenses, lost luggage and travel documents, personal accidents, travel delay and missed connections. There are varying levels of personal liability cover, hijack and wrongful detention and even motor hi-jacking cover. We have three levels of cover for leisure travellers, including an Indian Ocean policy, and special rates for groups, business travellers, students, youths and senior citizens.
