Do You Have Credit Card Travel Insurance?

Free is great but don't assume it is comprehensive for your needs or adequate.

Credit cards in South Africa generally provide limited travel insurance cover,specifically for medical-related expenses and accidents. However, this is insufficient when you consider the high cost of medical treatment overseas.

Travellers should investigate how much cover their credit card provides and whether they need additional cover.

Select a comprehensive policy if any travellers:

  • require higher medical cover
  • want cover for flight cancellations
  • want cover for lost luggage
  • require cover for pre-existing medical conditions
