Zurich Travel Assist®
Zurich Travel Assist is a global travel assistance program that offers a robust range of services designed to supplement industry-specific accident and health insurance plans. Travel Assist services are available worldwide with benefits beginning on trips over 100 miles. Like our other accident and health insurance products, travel coverage is a flexible plan with optional benefits available for leisure travel and family members accompanying employees. For maximum protection, Travel Assist is included with Zurich's Compass accident insurance product.
Accident and Health Insurance with Travel Assist benefits
Benefits offered through Travel Assist include 24/7 access to travel professionals who can arrange medical referrals or connect travelers to specialized services. Broad coverage terms provide an extra level of coverage for natural disasters and assault-related injuries with additional benefits available for travelers leaving for destinations in war zones and offshore workers who require wraparound DBA coverage for on-the-job accidents. Stop-loss coverage, group-sponsored special risk coverage, accidental death insurance and regional policies can be added to any accident and health insurance plan to help minimize overall risk.
