WHY DOES MY COMPANY NEED GROUP TRAVEL BUSINESS INSURANCE?
Employers have a duty of care to ensure the health, safety and well-being of their employees in the workplace during business travel. This professional relationship automatically imposes a duty of care on the employer toward their employees. This also extends to situations where the employee is required to travel for work or is seconded overseas. Any breaches could result in civil claims and/or criminal liability.
Group travel business insurance can protect your business interests in the event of an emergency. It also demonstrates good duty of care towards your travelling employees. If travelling is part of your employees’ job scope, it might be worth talking to us to see how a group travel insurance plan can keep your business and employees covered.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF HAVING A GROUP BUSINESS TRAVEL INSURANCE POLICY?
With a group business travel insurance plan, employers in Singapore can rest assured that they have fulfilled their role as responsible employers who care for their business travellers by ensuring that medical attention and travel assistance are available to their employees while travelling and working aboard. The additional assurance of swift evacuation from a country where medical facilities are inadequate to a medical centre of excellence also enables business travellers to travel with confidence.
A comprehensive, regionally appropriate group travel business insurance policy can be a cost-effective way to round out a robust suite of employee benefits. Used in conjunction with comprehensive group medical insurance and group personal accident insurance, your teams can travel globally knowing that they are well protected with a travel business insurance.

HOW CAN I KEEP TRACK OF MY BUSINESS TRAVELLERS?
Some of the leading insurers offer technology solutions as part of their policy. These systems have been developed to help employers better fulfil their duty of care to their travelling employees by:
- Using online dashboards that monitor travel disruptions in real-time. HR and risk managers are able to track and locate their travelling employees when disruptions occur
- Alerting employees of disruptions/incidents through push notifications and SMS so that they stay safe and secure
- Equipping travelling employees in affected areas to access 24/7 emergency assistance at a touch of a button via an app
