What is Corporate Travel Insurance?
Corporate Travel Insurance comprehensively covers your directors and employees travelling for business interstate, intrastate or overseas.
The fundamental purpose of Corporate Travel Insurance is to give you access to medical emergency assistance while you are travelling overseas. Services include clinics, doctors and nurses, and evacuation. The policy offers emergency assistance for other risks to your safety, such as natural disasters, political unrest and extortion. Security and safety experts are on call.
The policy also covers the cost of other mishaps: lost or damaged luggage; loss of personal effects including money and credit cards; cancelled flights and accommodation; rental car excess; and more.
An effective response to a travel emergency or serious misadventure reduces disruption to your business:
- with your employees adequately cared for during and after the trip
- the costs of the emergency or misadventure carefully managed

Why do you need this policy?
Here's an example:
An executive travelled to Perth on business, and his company had a Corporate Travel Insurance Policy cover all employees for travel both local and overseas.
When the employee booked into the hotel, he found his hotel room was not made up and went down to advise the front desk. The hotel offered him another room; however, in the confusion of changing hotel rooms, he left his sunglasses in the previous unmade room.
He called reception, and unfortunately, no sunglasses were found.
The executive then lodged a claim with the Corporate Travel Insurer and was cash paid for his loss of $275.
