You should never travel without adequate travel insurance.
There are now many travel insurance policies available on the market. However, not all offer the same degree of cover or assistance in the event of a medical emergency overseas. You should always read all the policy small print and inform the insurers of all relevant medical history and possible high risk activities.
As an expedition leader and doctor, taking groups to remote parts of the world, and thus having an extended 'duty of care' to participants on his expeditions, Jim has thoroughly looked into and vetted various travel insurance and medical repatriation options over the years. To date, the most appropriate and flexible cover he has found for his travel needs is with specialist insurance brokers, Campbell Irvine Ltd. of London.
In keeping with the 'one-stop shop' idea, TrExMed has arranged a travel insurance policy with Campbell Irvine Ltd, underwritten by the A-rated Insurer, Allianz Global Assistance.
