Travel & Personal Accident Cover

Travel & Personal Accident Cover

Every business should protect its most valuable asset: its people.  So, why not offer them the best possible protection?

What if?

the manager of your R&D operations is injured abroad and requires 2 months’ recuperation? How do you minimise the disruption to your business that's caused by the absence?

your commercial director falls ill abroad, just days before he was due to sign a major new contract to supply your company’s product? How do you take care of your valuable employee and still secure the contract?

Five reasons why you shouldn't be without Business Travel and Personal Accident Cover:  

  1. Expansion: with international expansion comes more overseas travel by staff. It’s essential to carry insurance against travel contingencies – lost baggage, cancellation, illness & accident.
  2. Instant support & rapid settlement: with access to 4/7 assistance services in case of emergency, you staff can access policy benefit sinstantly from anywhere in the world.
  3. Recruiting the best staff: you can ‘ramp up’ cover for your senior staff, differentiating your benefits package and helping you to attract and retain the best talent.
  4. Business as usual: with Personal Accident lump sum payments made directly to the business,you can use the money as you wish – recruitment, an interim replacement or changes to the workplace to accommodate a disabled employee.
  5. Terrific Value: La Playa’s comprehensive, group policies start from as little as £250 per annum*.
