Kidnap and Ransom Insurance

Every year there are more than 40,000 kidnappings globally with over 40% of kidnappings being Professionals and Business Personnel or their dependents. Kidnappings can occur in any region of the world, but particularly in hot-spots such as war zones and crisis zones (for example Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen & Pakistan) as well as sub-Saharan Africa, South America and areas of political or social unrest.

If you or your staff travel or conduct business in any of these types of area; you should consider our Kidnap and Ransom insurance. Most kidnappings occur to obtain a ransom and few victims are rescued or released safely without ransoms being paid. Unfortunately you cannot rely on Government support and they certainly won’t pay any ransom demand for you. As an Employer you have a ‘duty of care’ to protect your staff overseas.

Our Kidnap and Ransom Insurance (K + R) in partnership with Inter Hannover insurance company includes:

  • Ransom monies paid or lost in transit
  • Crisis Management and Consultant costs
  • Additional Care Expenses
  • Replacement Costs
  • Personal Specialist Security Expenses
  • Return Home Expenses
  • Salary Continuance
  • Salary Replacement
  • Personal Accident

The K + R cover is backed by access to a specialised 24/7 Global Emergency and Crisis Response Team and covers up to £3,000,000 per person and up to £6,000,000 in the annual aggregate per policy.

Political and Natural Disaster Evacuation and Repatriation Insurance

If you have staff travelling or undertaking assignments in foreign countries you may want to think about our Political and Natural Disaster Evacuation and Repatriation Insurance product.

Events over recent years have shown that political events can change very quickly in some countries, with regimes changing or being challenged overnight. Similarly, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office travel advice to countries can change just as quickly and therefore an area that was previously safe to visit can become dangerous.

Equally there is often little warning when a Natural Disaster may strike, making it necessary for staff to return to their home country due to safety.

Cover includes:

  • Political or Military events within the Host Country
  • Natural Disaster within the Host Country
  • Change of Official Travel advice to a country or area
  • Government of the Host Country declaring a state of emergency, or formally instructing insured persons to leave the country for safety reasons, or seizing or confiscating  the insured’s property, plant or equipment, or expulsion of insured persons or withdrawal of all scheduled international commercial flights for a period in excess of 24 hours
  • Increased Expertise required following an insured event to facilitate evacuation or breakdown of equipment
  • Loss of Personal Effects
  • Travel and Accommodation costs associated with Increased Expertise
  • Personal Accident cover
  • Return and Restoration Costs
  • Salary Continuance

The policy also includes the following unique and reactive clauses:

  • Point of Incident Evacuation
  • Hibernation – securing your location and personnel until the situation dissipates
  • Expertise Increase – Insertion of a specialist team to shut down your facility or office and recover documentation
