TIC adds car-rental excess waiver
16 Oct 2018 - by Sarah Robertson
TIC has introduced a new car-rental excess waiver benefit to all its international products.
The new waiver offers reimbursement of the excess for which a traveller is liable if they are involved in an accident or if a hired car is stolen. The benefit is being introduced on TIC’s business products, as well as on its Leisure Comprehensive and Leisure Standard products.
Simmy Micheli, manager – sales and marketing for TIC, says the new benefit was introduced due to popular demand from travellers. “The waiver limit varies according to the plan the client takes and is valid in whichever country they are travelling,” explains Micheli.
Additional changes to TIC’s products include overall benefit limit increases on various products including medical and related expenses, pre-existing illness cover, cancellation cover, accidental death, travel delay, weather conditions, luggage cover and luggage delay.
The company’s travel delay benefit now also introduces reimbursement for lounge access costs. Missed events are included as insured events under journey cancellation and curtailment cover. Senior cover is now available for up to 123 days and the denied visa benefit is restricted to SA passport holders only.
