Through this partnership, Nedbank cardholders will benefit from access to a range of travel options. In addition to the travel insurance cover for situations such as medical emergencies, baggage theft, flight delays and cancellations, some of the notable aspects also covered include; visa rejections, missed events, travel supplier insolvencies and hazardous sporting activities.

Anriëth Symon, Head of Travel at Zurich, says: “Since its launch in 2013, our Travel Insurance division has grown from strength to strength and it is a great compliment to be chosen as the preferred partner to a leading financial institution such as Nedbank. We are confident that our comprehensive travel insurance offering and seamless service experience will further bolster the services currently enjoyed by Nedbank’s customers.”

Graeme Holmes, Head of Consumer Cards at Nedbank says, “Our partnership with Zurich complements our client centred approach aimed at delivering a distinctive experience, leveraging their impeccable track record as an industry leader. Travelling embodies various sentiments for our valued clients. Ensuring peace of mind and a seamless experience across all travel requirements, in particular the insurance aspect is what really matters for clients.”

Making substantial inroads into the travel insurance segment, Zurich’s commitment to transparency and impartiality have been instrumental in growing the portfolio beyond expectations. The partnership with Nedbank will add to its list of prestigious partners and growing customer portfolio.

“We are grateful for the loyal support we receive from our travel trade partners who recognise our ability to settle claims with speed, professionalism and fairness. We look forward to continue delivering our efficient services and enhanced benefits to our rapidly increasing customer base,” concludes Symon.

With regards to the COFI Bill, do you believe lumping the health and finance sector in the same basket will sustain the financial sector?


Yes, it forms part of the FSCA’s mandate to protect and maintain the sustainability of the financial sector, and to legislate fairness and make it the law
No, the products are different therefore the health sector should not have to be subjected to similar conduct requirements
This will cause problems. More consultations should be conducted before the final version of the COFI Bill is sent to Parliament for promulgation
