It is now common practice for companies to send their employees – their most valuable assets – to work around the globe. Standard travel insurance will often not be enough, especially if your employees make regular long-haul business trips abroad. No matter which country they find themselves in, it is important that they get rapid assistance for any eventuality which may occur. A comprehensive Business Travel Insurance policy, whether just for the occasional trip or multi-trips anywhere in the world (including the UK), includes a wide range of benefits, is simple to buy and is backed up by immediate, professional and worldwide assistance services.
