It’s that time of the year again: you’ve worked hard every day, battled the traffic to and from work, saved as much money as possible at the end of every month… and now you can finally go on a much deserved and much anticipated trip overseas. But before you pack your bags and hop on a plane, there are some things you should take into account that could potentially save you heaps of cash while at the same time keeping you safe and protected.
“We plan for our retirement, our day-to-day health and safety, and for the future of the ones we love… so, why not plan for the ‘what ifs’ that could potentially strike while we’re on holiday?,” says Derek Wilson, Head of Hippo.co.za, South Africa’s leading online insurance and finance comparison website. “There are so many checkpoints in place to ensure that your overseas trip is nothing but a dream come true, but first you have to ensure that the most important measures, like your travel insurance, are in order.”
Here are just some of the key factors to keep in the back of your mind when packing your sunhats and sarongs:
“It is also a good idea to compare online at Hippo.co.za before you’re off on your journey. The site will allow you to compare quotes and benefits from a range of SA providers across financial products such as Travel Insurance, Medical Aid, Personal Loans and also Car Insurance, Household Insurance, Buildings Insurance, Life Insurance, and more,” concludes Wilson. “And because one in two people could save hundreds of Rands per month* on their Car Insurance alone, you could have extra cash in your pocket for your holiday.”
Established in 2007, Hippo.co.za is South Africa’s leading comparison website that helps consumers save money by comparing a range of SA providers across financial products such as Car Insurance, Home Insurance, Life Insurance, Medical Aid and more. Hippo.co.za is free to use and saves consumers the time and hassle of shopping around for the best deal since the Hippo.co.za website instantly retrieves real-time quotes from the different providers using the latest technology. One in two people could save hundreds of Rands per month* on their Car Insurance alone by using Hippo.co.za to compare before they buy or switch to a new provider.
Hippo.co.za makes money by simply charging its partners a fee when a customer chooses to find out more about their products. The results consumers see, and the order in which they are presented, are in no way influenced by the fee Hippo.co.za charges its partners or any other factors other than the price of the product being compared.
