AIR TRAVEL: Airline Fans Get Easy Access to Travel Insurance with ACE


Recent Gauteng Business News

The convenience of modern living means a trip to Durban, Cape Town or Johannesburg – or indeed any major city in South Africa – is just a couple of hours away. That’s thanks to, the original low fare airline in this country. But while the green planes and cheerful crew of the airline consistently do their best to make everything run like clockwork, the world remains an unpredictable place and that’s why kulula has just introduced travel insurance, underwritten and powered by ACE, to mitigate the chances of any financial loss.

ACE Insurance

Ross Waterford, Consumer Lines Manager at ACE Insurance, points out that spending a little extra to provide for the unknown is becoming a way of life. “We don’t drive cars without insurance nor do we run the risk of not insuring our household goods. The same applies to travelling. For a few extra Rands, you can make sure that on every trip you take your baggage, valuables and time are protected with a simple, easy to buy and very affordable policy.”

With having blazed its trail into the South African airlines market by using the internet cleverly (and in the process, revolutionising air travel), it should come as no surprise that adding an ACE Insurance policy to your ticket is a simple ‘one-click’ process. “All you have to do is choose your flights as per normal; when you get to the ‘Add traveller details and extras’ menu, select ‘Travel Insurance’ and you’re flying with peace of mind,” explains Heidi Brauer, Executive Manager, Group Marketing for Comair Ltd.

Understanding New Domestic Travel Insurance

Waterford says the domestic travel insurance solution is designed for ultimate ease of use which extends from buying the cover to claiming. “A quick summary of the benefits include cover for flight cancellation and interruption; baggage Loss or damage, theft (Up to R10, 000) and delay (R500 per 3-hour delay period); flight delay R500 (per 3-hour delay period) and personal accident. (R25 000).” – all for just R26 per person per flight.

Waterford stresses that this is only a summary of the benefits, with full policy information available from kulula’s website. “With clever systems integration, we’ve kept the cost of travel insurance really low through automation – while the claims process is equally easy. “
