IHI Travel Insurance, a subsidiary of BUPA International, has launched unlimited medical cover on travel insurance, effective January 1, 2008.

A policy with IHI Travel Insurance will also give travelers access to IHI’s own multi-lingual emergency service which is at their disposal 24 hours a day from anywhere in the world. When adequate medical treatment is not available locally, IHI will arrange for medical evacuation or repatriation.

IHI will provide two types of travel insurance: IHI Annual Travel, which covers all year round with trips lasting up to a month, and IHI Single Trip, which covers one single trip for as long as you wish, but not exceeding 12 months.

Eva Nittegaard, sales and service manager of IHI Travel Insurance, said: It’s essential that people know what they are covered for when they buy their travel insurance, especially where their health is concerned. By taking out a policy with unlimited cover there are no grey areas and no nasty surprises when you come to claim – we will cover it all. IHI now has one of the most comprehensive travel insurance products on the market.
