Motor insurance gives protection to the vehicle owner against (i). damages to his/her vehicle and (ii). pays for any Third Party Liability determined as per law against the owner of the vehicle. Third Party Insurance is a statutory requirement. The owner of the vehicle is legally liable for any injury or damage to third party life or property caused by or arising out of the use of the vehicle in a public place. Driving a motor vehicle without insurance in a public place is a punishable offence in terms of the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988.

Travel Insurance is insurance that is intended to cover medical expenses, trip cancellation, lost luggage, flight accident and other losses incurred while traveling, either internationally or within one’s own country.
Travel insurance can usually be arranged at the time of the booking of a trip to cover exactly the duration of that trip, or a “multi-trip” policy can cover an unlimited number of trips within a set time frame. Some policies offer lower and higher medical-expense options; the higher ones are chiefly for countries that have extremely high medical costs, such as the USA.

Coverage types
The most common risks that are covered by travel insurance plans are:
• Medical emergency (accident or sickness)
• Emergency evacuation
• Repatriation of remains
• Return of a minor
• Trip cancellation
• Trip interruption
• Accidental death, injury or disablement benefit
• Overseas funeral expenses
• Lost, stolen or damaged baggage, personal effects or travel documents
• Delayed baggage (and emergency replacement of essential items)
• Flight connection was missed due to airline schedule
• Travel delays due to weather
• Hijacking
Medical Expenses coverage can be Per Occurrence or Maximum Limit.

Types of Plans Available

The most common plans that are available are:

• Individual Overseas Travel Insurance
• Student Travel Insurance
• Asia Travel Insurance
• Domestic Travel Insurance
• Corporate Travel Insurance
• Family Travel Insurance
• Multi-trip Travel Insurance

Optional coverage
Some travel policies will also provide cover for additional costs, although these vary widely between providers.
In addition, often separate insurance can be purchased for specific costs such as:
• Pre-existing conditions (e.g. asthma, diabetes)
• Sports with an element of risk (e.g. skiing, scuba diving)
• Travel to high risk countries (e.g. due to war, natural disasters or acts of terrorism)
• Additional AD&D coverage
• 3rd party supplier insolvency (e.g. the hotel or airline to which you made non-refundable pre-payments has gone into administration)
• Acute on-set of pre-existing conditions – This term is very different from Pre-existing conditions. It means a sudden and unexpected occurrence of pre-existing medical conditions without any prior warning from a medical professional. Travel insurance companies, especially in USA, do not offer coverage for pre-existing coverage but they do offer coverage for acute on-set of pre-existing conditions. If you have pre-existing conditions, make sure to get this coverage to protect yourself against any emergency situation that arises due to pre-existing conditions in spite of taking care.

Common exclusions
• Pre-existing medical conditions
• War or terrorism – but some plans may cover this risk, and some do cover for acts of terrorism
• Injury or illness caused by alcohol or drug use
Travel insurance can also provide helpful services, often 24 hours a day, 7 days a week that can include concierge services and emergency travel assistance.
