Longstay & Backpacker 2016/17 – New Terms Effective From 1st February 2016
Dear Supporting Broker,
We are pleased to provide details of Longstay & Backpacker 2016/17 which are effective from 1st February 2016.
Longstay & Backpacker is the essential policy for your clients who are taking extended trips abroad such as a gap year, round the world trip or work abroad.
KEY CHANGES INCLUDE
- Premiums – there are no changes to premiums; in fact rates have been held for the second year running!
- There is no longer the option to delete personal possessions cover.
- Policy cover – there are a number of changes (including new geographical telephone numbers for medical screening, medical assistance and claims), but the underlying cover remains unchanged. See new 2016/17 Insurance Policy for details.
Following feedback from Brokers, we have introduced a new 3 page Sales Leaflet PDF which will be more cost efficient for you to print out. We are not producing a printed version this year.
For those Brokers that use our Self Issue Facility, you can continue to use your 2015/16 Application & Schedule three part sets.
You can order new supplies online or by contacting the Broker Development Team on 02392 419 050.
