Benenden travel insurance hits the market

20th May 2014

A new travel insurance offering that has no upper age limit and where cover for all medical conditions can be considered hits the market today from benenden wellbeing.

Travel insurance is the first in a range of products being brought to market this year by benenden wellbeing, a subsidiary of the York-based mutual healthcare provider, benenden health.

The new benenden travel insurance will provide travellers with flexible and inclusive cover for a wide range of travel needs - including policies with different levels of cover to suit specific requirements, and no upper age limit. Cover is also provided, subject to medical screening, for pre-existing conditions.

Jon Craven, Managing Director at benenden wellbeing said: “It’s an exciting new venture for our organisation to be able to launch a product that offers individuals a highly flexible and comprehensive cover to suit a range of travel needs – and one that addresses clear demand from our mutual community.

“People want to have peace of mind when they go on holiday knowing that if something does go wrong, they’ll get the assistance they need – and we believe this product does just that.

“We particularly wanted to make our travel cover as accessible as possible which is why there is no upper age limit and cover for all medical conditions can be considered. “Benenden wellbeing already has a core set of established products and we’re keen to deliver an additional range of quality products and services which extend our range in key areas.

‘We’ve been delighted to work with our new underwriting partner MAPFRE ASSISTANCE, a proven travel insurance specialist, in developing this product.”

Offering competitive pricing, benenden travel Insurance will provide a choice of cover for UK, Europe and worldwide travel both for individuals, couples, groups and for families – including single and annual multi-trip policies. A range of cover can be provided including cancellation and curtailment, personal liability, medical expenses and repatriation.

Travel insurance is the first in the range of new products set to be launched by benenden wellbeing in 2014.
