The festive season is almost here and globetrotters are busy finalising their travel plans. If you are going to be crossing borders, remember to timeously activate your international travel insurance benefit which is available to all Bestmed members. This benefit ensures that members who travel out of South Africa, either for business or leisure, are covered for medical emergencies that may occur when in other countries. 

With the recent pandemic that changed the world, it is evident, now more than ever, how easily people can catch an illness during their travels and find themselves requiring urgent medical attention. Bestmed offers an international travel benefit that covers you for:

  • Emergency medical and related expenses
  • Hospitalisation (outpatient and in-patient)
  • Emergency optical and dental expenses
  • Medical repatriation, evacuation and transportation

This includes cover for pre-existing medical conditions up to R250 000, however, the cover provided is not a medical scheme and does not cover medical procedures that can be done in South Africa.

The Benefit is managed by Europ Assistance SA and is administered by Linkham Services SA (Pty) Ltd (FSP 45396), underwritten by GENRIC Insurance Company Limited (FSP 43638), an authorised financial services provider and licensed non-life insurer.

For more information on the Bestmed International Travel Benefit, you can visit the page on our website.
