Thursday, 04 15 2021, Category: Insurance and Reinsurance, Country: Gulf Cooperation Council
AXA Gulf, one of the largest international insurers in the GCC, is launching a 20 per cent promotional discount on travel insurance with the aim of encouraging residents to be safe and healthy, whilst also helping with the ongoing Covid-19 vaccination drive in the region.
The 20 per cent discount on travel insurance will be available to customers who have had both vaccinations for Covid-19. The offer will be available only on AXA’s outbound, Travel Smart product, which is also its most comprehensive travel product, for short-haul trips. To avail the discount, all customers need to do is confirm that they’ve been fully vaccinated and provide the date of their second dose.
With AXA’s Travel Smart plan, customers will enjoy a variety of benefits, including worldwide medical emergency assistance, protection against loss or theft of personal baggage, personal money and passport, emergency purchases of essential items in the event of a luggage delay, delayed departures as a result of unexpected events, and medical expenses and transportation in the event of sickness or accidental injury.
Commenting on the launch of the promotion, Franck Heimburger, Chief Personal Lines Officer at AXA Gulf, said: “A regulatory mandate was recently issued leading to UAE-based airlines offering Covid-19 cover with their tickets. Travellers need to be aware that often the cover embedded in these tickets is limited in that it only covers the consequences of Covid-19, rather than any other circumstance of a claim. With this in mind, we encourage all travellers to purchase a full-fledged cover that can be useful in case of travel inconveniences or medical emergencies unrelated to Covid-19.”
