Filo Diretto has launched Amitravel with Kuoni Italia
Italian insurer Filo Diretto Group has partnered with tour operator Kuoni Italia to launch Amitravel, a travel insurance that covers medical expenses up to €90 000 (£77 105) for injury or illness.
Features of the policy include coverage for loss, theft or snatching of the luggage up to €2000 and medical assistance around the clock. The insurance package will be available for customers of Kuoni Italia and Best Tours, a society acquired by Kuoni in December 2010.
The policy offers, among others, coverage for trip cancellation against all risks, which gives customers the chance to get a refund on any cancellation penalties, on the entire tour package should a flight be delayed, and a forfeit indemnity up to €150 for the delay itself.
Amitravel offers home care services for family members who are not taking part in the trip and technical home assistance with full protection of the house while abroad.
The policy also features Travel Care, a remote medical consulting service for people who travel abroad, and Medical Passport, which provides customers’ multilingual online medical records, so that medical information might be accessed from abroad.
The firm also provides 24-hour news about compulsory or recommended vaccinations, climate, medicaments, specialist doctors or hospitals, sanitary risks, to advise on health and safety issues, and to give an insight of insurance coverage packages.
