AXA Insurance launches new cover

The company's Travel Smart policy offers protection against medical emergencies and other travel crises.

AXA Insurance Gulf has launched three new comprehensive cover policies that can be bought through travel agents when making a holiday booking.

The new products - Travel Smart, Travel Family and Travel Schengen - offer consumers a greater range of insurance options, allowing them to choose for themselves the level of cover they require.

"Unforeseen events whilst you travel can disrupt a good holiday and using AXA's Travel Smart Insurance to protect you, your family and your belongings will give you peace of mind," said Hemant Gupta, travel manager at AXA Gulf.

Travel Smart covers travellers in the event of a medical emergency or an accident, as well as third party liability, loss of baggage or money, trip cancellation, loss of passport or a delayed departure.

The Travel Family is a similar comprehensive cover that includes the insured person and his family.

Travel Schengen is the basic cover required in order to apply for an entry visa to the Schengen countries, mainly in the EU.

The product was recently launched to some of the leading travel agents in the UAE at an exclusive desert safari.

Agents were briefed on the various facets of the product including its pricing and the unique attributes of each product.

AXA Insurance also awarded Sharaftravel with a high performance award in the UAE for being the most productive travel agency for travel insurance.
