PJH provides case study for BIBA’s 2016 Manifesto
Dear Supporting Broker,
We are delighted to be part of BIBA’s 2016 Manifesto by providing one of the case studies which demonstrates the value of using a specialist Broker and helping customers get the cover they need. The article is set out below.
FREE SPIRIT HELPED BRITISH WW2 VETERANS RETURN TO ARNHEM
In 2015, the Taxi Charity† – run and funded by London’s cab drivers – took 120 veterans back to the Netherlands to attend a commemoration ceremony for the Liberation of Arnhem in 1945.
The veterans who came from all over the UK had not been back since they left the war torn city 70 years earlier. The oldest veteran to travel was aged 97, with a further 100 veterans aged 90 or above so specialist travel insurance was vital.
BIBA member, PJ Hayman & Co Ltd, via its Free Spirit scheme, took an innovative approach to the insurance requirements and abandoned the ‘one size fits all’ standard policy and stepped outside the usual medical screening ‘box’ to provide the Taxi Charity with a tailor-made policy including blanket cover for the medical risks of the travelling group.
Mary Holt, Free Spirit Manager explained; “It would have been an impossible task to medically screen each person. Providing the insurance wasn’t just about ages and medical risks, it was about giving the veterans the peace of mind that should something happen to them on their trip, they would be covered.”
Free Spirit was able to offer full policy cover to a total of 306 veterans, committee members, carers, drivers, medical support team members and guests. We are pleased to say the whole travelling group returned safely with not a single claim against the policy.
