CAMAF International Travel Cover

At all times, as a CAMAF member, your well-being is a priority. This is especially the case when our members need to travel outside of the borders of South Africa, as hospitalisation costs for medical treatment in foreign countries can leave you financially crippled. As a CAMAF member, you and your noted dependents, will have access to the travel Insurance benefits through TIC.

Complete the details below, under 'Issue your Certificate' to obtain your own travel insurance policy. You will be issued with your Schedule of Insurance that details the benefits and limits available to you, a Visa letter and your policy wording. If anything is unclear, please contact the Travel Insurance Help Desk on 011 521 4500.

Why do I need this?

Travelling is very exciting but it can be stressful too. Due to the increasing exchange rate of the Rand against many foreign currencies, travelling without travel insurance has the potential to leave you financially crippled. Hospital costs for a serious injury or unexpected and unforeseen illness can run into millions of Rands!

What do I get?

The most important benefit on your travel insurance policy is your emergency medical cover. CAMAF covers your medical costs in the event of injury or illness whilst travelling outside the borders of South Africa.
  • You can top up your cover with increased benefits, and additional new benefits that are not offered on your free cover, by selecting the cover option called 'CAMAF Including Top Up':
