Protecting travellers – and supporting those responsible for their safety – is our business
By helping travellers prevent and mitigate risks – and get the help they need whenever and wherever they need it – our travellers and their risk managers feel empowered, supported, and safe.
Why Choose World Travel Protection?
We have a long-standing history of helping travellers and their risk managers
At World Travel Protection, protecting people is our priority. We have taken care of corporate and leisure travellers for over 30 years, helping them prevent and mitigate risks before they escalate and providing them with immediate access to the right experts when an emergency occurs.
Our decades of experience in global travel risk management is the reason we are trusted by travellers and organisations across the globe, who allow us to help prepare them for potential travel threats and assist them when they need it most.
We provide travellers with worldwide 24-hour emergency medical and security assistance
If travellers need emergency help, our medical and security experts are only a phone call away. We have a team of over 200 full-time registered nurses, registered paramedics, doctors, intensive care workers and security professionals who are experts in emergency assistance. This means our travellers get the help they need, fast.
Our experts are based in dedicated Command Centres in Australia, Canada, the UK, and in Argentina via our sister company Universal Assistance, where they provide travellers with access to immediate advice and support 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
We are experts in travel risk management – not only emergency assistance
Travel assistance isn’t only about helping travellers once disaster strikes – it’s also about empowering them to mitigate risks before they occur. We stay ahead of potential risks affecting our travellers by conducting important medical or security risk analysis and reporting on a daily basis.
Because our world is in a constant state of change, it’s important we support our travellers and their risk managers in mitigating emerging medical and security risks, such as pandemics, civil or political unrest, severe weather events, terrorist acts, major transport accidents, or industrial action.
Our World Travel Protection risk experts also help prepare travellers pre-trip with our travel risk training, procedures and policies. This not only em- powers the traveller, but keeps them safe and aware of potential risks while they’re away from home.
We provide true worldwide support
We have been part of Cover-More Group – a global travel insurance and traveller assistance company – for over 30 years. During this time, we have helped Cover-More Group provide more than 15 million leisure and business travellers with access to world-class emergency medical assistance and health support each year.
In 2017, we became part of the Zurich Insurance Group – one of the world’s leading multi-line insurers. This global partnership further helps our travellers by providing them with access to 24/7 centres around the world, as well as a network of correspondents and accredited providers to help support them when they need it most.
