Hotspot Cover becomes TRIP Group's official insurance partner

Specialist insurance provider, Hotspot Cover has become the official insurance partner of the TRIP Group.

Developed with Lloyd’s of London, Hotspot Cover is designed for individuals and groups travelling to the world’s high risk and hostile territories.

Cover includes COVID19, war and terrorism cover and for areas where the Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (or local authority equivalent) or the World Health Organisation have advised against travel.

Chief executive of the TRIP Group, Lloyd Figgins said: “Hotspot Cover provides a great range of medical travel insurance and emergency assistance to those working in the widest variety of occupations- from business travellers, front line journalists and NGOs to engineers and charity workers; anyone in fact travelling “to and from” almost anywhere in the world. This aligns very well with the needs of TRIP Group members, which is why we’re delighted to be working with them.”
