Nicoz Diamond offers leisure and business travel insurance packages which allow Zimbabweans to access worldwide leisure and business travel insurance locally. This is a foreign currency dominated policy with premiums payable in Rand or any other hard currency. It provides global cover anywhere in the world and is underwritten by TIC (Travel Insurance Consultancy), a subsidiary of Santam of South Africa, with emergency assistance being provided by Europe Assistance.
If you travel without travel insurance, you open yourself up to amassing crippling medical expenses.
It is important to be aware of the fact that any medical expenses you may incur would be paid in foreign currencies, and this could lead to financial ruin if you are travelling to a country with a stronger currency.
Buying a travel insurance policy will provide you with financial security and travel assistance and protect you from potentially enormous financial costs.
For example, in th UK, just a routine visit to the GP may cost you between 150GBP and 200GBP.
Hospitalisation costs for serious medical conditions such as injuries resulting from motor vehicle accidents, or illnesses such as heart attacks, strokes and bowel obstructions could result in exorbitant bills.
Travel insurance provides a financial safety net for policyholders while they are travelling as well as 24 hour international assistance, which means that help, when needed, is only a phone call away.
