Holidays should be a time to relax, not worry

Holidays should be a time for relaxation, not for worrying about getting stranded or having to pay for expensive medical treatment abroad.

Why you need travel insurance

You may be thinking, “I don’t need extra travel insurance. I have free cover through my credit card.” But, the fact is that most complimentary insurance products only provide a limited amount of cover for medical expenses and losses such as damaged or lost luggage. With the declining rand value, the cost of medical treatment and evacuation for an overseas medical emergency can bankrupt you. That’s why it’s important to ensure you have comprehensive cover.

Claims and emergencies



How soon before my trip should I buy travel insurance?
Travel insurance must be obtained before you embark on your journey. You can purchase travel insurance up to 12 months before you travel, however the journey cancellation benefit is only effective six months prior to your departure.
Do I have to start and finish my trip in my country of residence?
It is necessary, unless you are buying our Emigration product, but then you must be travelling from South Africa.
I am going overseas for over a year. Will TIC cover me?
365 days is the maximum period you can purchase cover for.
Will TIC cover local domestic travel?
TIC’s Local Travel Insurance cover is suited to South African residents travelling within South Africa.
