You get the thrill, ACE Insurance takes the risk

02 October 2012 ACE Insurance Ltd

Love sporting holidays, now you can take out cover without going out on a financial limb. That’s because ACE Insurance is putting clever technology to work to deliver on-the-spot cover for sports fanatics.

Since entering the leisure travel insurance market over two years ago, ACE has focused on introducing solutions that are convenient and which provide more cover than ever before, says Ross Waterford, A&H Consumer Lines Manager. “Our insurance for sporting travellers is designed to deliver a smooth, hassle-free process for brokers and travel agents to provide on-the-spot cover for clients. That takes a big step forward and means your trip isn’t complicated by hassling with travel insurance cover.”

A countrywide first, Waterford says policies are issued from the broker’s or travel agents desk at a click of a button and with a single premium collection.

For an additional premium ACE Insurance provides cover sports including but not limited to:

· Scuba diving (to a depth not exceeding 30 meters);

· Shark Cage Diving;

· Bungee Jumping;

· Iron Man, Marathons and Triathlons;

· Motorcycling 125CC – 500CC.

Waterford says ACE is focusing on further improving its systems to deliver further insurance innovations. “For example, we have introduced plans to cater for individuals travelling with children, the ability to issue policies for under 18s, ratings for trips up to a maximum of 180 days and the introduction of a Seniors Travel product.”

Across all these lines, he says convenience and value are the driving force. “Taking out insurance should be the simplest part of any travel experience. At the same time, while you’re doing the exciting stuff, you want to be sure that the financial risks are all taken care of.”
