Why you need travel insurance

With the excitement of a planned holiday, we're sure you don't want to be thinking about what can go wrong during your trip, let alone what can prevent you from embarking on your trip at all. Unfortunately, medical emergencies, forced trip cancellations, inconvenient luggage incidents and travel delays do occur and can not only ruin your trip, but leave you heavily indebted.

Thankfully, you can prepare for these events by having travel insurance - while also having the added benefit of 24/7 international assistance services at your fingertips when you need support the most or need to put up a guarantee in order to obtain medical treatment.

If you have medical or government aid in your home country, why would you not want to cover yourself when in a foreign country and there is the risk of having to pay exorbitant medical expenses?

Hepstar offers a range of products to meet your needs and budget:

  • Budget Travel Insurance offers basic medical benefits to meet Schengen visa requirements while offering limited cover for your belongings and reimbursement for delays
