Travel Insurance

Travel Insurance is one of the most important elements when planning your trip

Travel insurance is an essential item that is often easily overlooked in the frenzy of holiday planning and buying bikinis. Be prepared and make sure you are covered!

Regardless of whether you are travelling for business or pleasure, there is always some form of risk involved. None of us are able to fund just any emergency out of our own pockets – especially not at the current exchange rate! Ensure that you have comprehensive travel insurance to protect you from substantial losses that may result from any unforeseen circumstances such as lost baggage, medical emergencies, supplier defaults and cancelled trips.

<h3>Travel insurance can differ from one company to another</h3>

Travel insurance covers various situations which are excluded from covers offered by credit card companies and healthcare plans. So be sure to purchase a suitable and adequate travel insurance plan for peace of mind, and assistance when required.

Foreign Exchange and Cash Passport

Visas and passports -the key to travelling the world

  • Visas and passports -the key to travelling the world

    One of the first steps in planning a trip overseas should centre on ensuring that your money matters are all in order. By being prepared, any difficulties that are encountered when dealing with foreign exchange or money exchange can be complicated by distance and language – so by ensuring that your forex is in order before you leave, you will be saving yourself a potential nightmare.

    Recommended Currency & Forex

    It is in your best interest to purchase the preferred currency of your destination. Always remember to carry small denominations for convenient local shopping – and never carry all the currency you have exchanged on you when you go out. For information on foreign exchange contact your Travel Experience store or Travelex – who supply foreign notes in all major currencies at a competitive exchange rate. Travelex also supplies and arranges traveller’s cheques, Cash Passports, drafts and telegraphic transfers.

    <h3>A Visa Cash Passport is a great alternative to traveller’s cheques.</h3>

    A Visa Cash Passport is an easy way to safely store Forex, giving you the ability to get cash cheaper and faster by using an ATM, as opposed to using traveller’s cheques.

    You can pre-budget your travel spend, and, if necessary, you can ask your family back home to top it up. Just keep in mind that while ATMs give the best possible exchange rates, they do have transaction fees. Minimize fees by making fewer large withdrawals, but always be cautious and remember to keep cash safely in a money belt.
