Technological developments in recent years have led to rapid globalization, with individuals, cities and nations interconnected like never before! Due to faster, safer and more reliable means of transport, globetrotting has become easier than ever.
Zimbabweans have also joined the global travel bandwagon with quite a number of tourists travelling abroad annually.
There has been an increase of local passport offices and for Zimbabweans, major motivations for visiting other countries include study, employment, cross border trading, holidaying, business and shopping. For the Zimbabweans, Africa, Zambia, Namibia, Tanzania, Dubai and China are popular travel destinations.
However, traveling to new destinations also involve risks, like theft, sudden illness and even death. To counteract these challenges, NicozDiamond in partnership with Travel Insurance Consultancy (TIC) have structured a product targeted especially for travelers.
There are two types of packages: leisure and business travel insurance. These would allow Zimbabweans to access worldwide travel insurance locally.
Their clients would be able to buy the insurance covers in various currencies, including Rand, Euro and Pound Sterling. This travel insurance provides global cover anywhere in the world and mainly covers against medical expenses, trip cancellation, lost luggage as well as flight accidents.
