Need travel insurance? If you don’t know where to go, Pacific Cross is a great choice. Through its Travelsafe Plan, Pacific Cross helps ease the burden of travel inconveniences by offering protection against flight delay, trip postponement, trip termination, among others.
In fact, Pacific Cross provided travel insurance coverage for clients who were affected by the disruptions and technical issues in air traffic control at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) last New Year’s Day when a total of 361 flights were either delayed, canceled, or diverted to other regional airports. Around 56,000 passengers were affected during this time. The equipment that provided an uninterrupted power supply in NAIA terminals went offline unexpectedly and failed to connect to Manila Electric Co.’s backup commercial power supply.
As one of the leading medical and travel insurance providers in the Philippines, Pacific Cross understands the burden of unforeseen inconveniences to travelers. As a testament to its commitment to providing reliable and relevant coverage, Pacific Cross offers Travel insurance products specially designed to address travel challenges such as missed connecting flights, trip cancellations, or baggage delays.
“This 2023, we expect more Filipinos will be flying out of town or traveling outside the country,” says Victor Tanjuakio, President & CEO of Pacific Cross Philippines. “While this is exciting, there may be unexpected events that can negatively affect one’s trip. The NAIA incident is an example of where having travel insurance can help travelers manage the stress that comes from meeting the unexpected. We are happy that Pacific Cross is able to offer benefits and protection that can support clients at such a difficult time.”
Aside from these benefits, travelers are also assured of medical coverage (including for COVID-19), as well as emergency assistance benefits such as emergency medical evacuation, repatriation, care for minor children, compassionate visit, and return of mortal remains. Travelers can apply for individual, family, or group coverage, which are also available as peso, dollar, or euro plans. Pacific Cross is also Schengen-accredited.
Earlier this year, a study by Tangere revealed that 5 out of 10 Filipinos are ready to travel internationally. According to the Department of Tourism and the Philippine Statistics Authority, more than 37 million domestic trips were made in 2021, a 38.16% increase compared to the almost 27 million taken the previous year. Agoda’s Travel Trend survey was recently released, as well.
“Pacific Cross aims to ease some of the worries that come with unexpected situations during travel. With Travelsafe, we are able to give clients the peace of mind they need so they can enjoy their trips,” shares Mr. Tanjuakio.
