Client Testimonials

You never know how valuable travel insurance is until you need it.

Malaria high risk for travellers.

Traveller: Marius De Wit


Location: Lilongwe, Malawi Total claim amount: R950 000

Marius De Wit, a TIC client who contracted malaria in Lilongwe, Malawi, says: “Travel insurance is so important. Without it, you as the traveller take on board all the nancial risk and one can never be sure of the medical costs in other countries. “I went to gym one morning and then a few hours later I started feeling bad. At rst I thought I might have overdone it a bit at the gym because I had some body pains. But when I developed a fever and started shivering I was pretty sure it was malaria. “I phoned TIC and they helped me immediately, explaining to my driver where he should take me for treatment. The assistance company sorted out everything with the medical centre and I could just focus on getting better. They also phoned daily to check how I was progressing and I was very happy with their service.”
