Hotspot Cover is a specialist travel insurance provider designed for individuals and groups travelling to high risk and hostile regions across the world. It includes Covid-19, war and terrorism cover and for areas where the Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) or local authority equivalent or the World Health Organization (WHO) have ‘advised against travel’ and which are excluded on most travel insurance policies.
Speaking about the partnership, Chief Executive of the TRIP Group, Lloyd Figgins, said: “By working together with Hotspot Cover the TRIP Group are able to better service the requirements of our members and partners. We have secured great rates for our members. Ultimately, this partnership will help protect people and offer an additional layer of security, wherever they are travelling.”
Covering those in challenging environments
Individual customers can now obtain extreme-risk travel coverage that historically has only been available through the Lloyd’s market for large corporations or at a very high cost. Hotspot Cover is a licensed insurer and regulated by the Guernsey Financial Services Commission and is fully supported by the Lloyd’s insurance market.
Hotspot’s ability to recognise the needs for those operating challenging environments makes the partnership with the TRIP Group an obvious one.
Mark Butler, Director of Hotspot Cover, said: “The need for effective travel risk management has never been greater, the TRIP Group are experts in this field, so we’re very pleased to be partnering with them and allowing those who travel to stay one step ahead of risk.”
