UK provider of global consular assistance Consularcare has announced a partnership with UK travel insurance intermediary P J Hayman. The partnership will see Consularcare’s ConsularAssist solution included in P J Hayman’s revamped Travel Plus scheme.
“We are delighted that P J Hayman has recognised the benefits ConsularAssist brings to its policyholders and to those marketing its products,” said Consularcare co-founder and commercial director Mike Jones. “Consularcare will bridge the gap between the limited consular support available to travellers, and what they may need in an uncertain and ever-changing global environment.”
Jones also highlighted his belief that access to dedicated consular assistance is as much of a travel necessity as buying cover for medical expenses. “For the first time, Consularcare is enabling insurers to offer 24-hour consular cover to business and leisure travellers in 198 countries,” he said.
P J Hayman’s director Peter Hayman commented that Consularcare fits his company’s belief that the best range of covers and services should be provided wherever possible. “We will be looking to add it to other suitable products,” he stated.
