More strikes, thick fog with travel delays and cancellations – it doesn’t need to be a problem with Affirma.

The Docklands Light Railway strikes haven’t dampened our spirits at World Travel Market, we’re professional and experienced travellers and as they say, the show must go on, so we’ve all found alternative ways of getting to the event… but what if this was your customers’ holiday and they couldn’t make a flight due to the strikes or the fog stopped them travelling, who would pick up the bill?

Affirma offers Travel Disruption Insurance that protects your business from the increased costs of a customer travelling and it also protects your reputation as you can put the problem right for your customer – customer satisfaction and business protection, all in one!

Travel Disruption Insurance can cover you for non-refundable and unused travel, accommodation or holiday services already paid on behalf of your customer. And that’s not all. We also cover the cost of additional expenses incurred when a trip is delayed, cut short or cancelled, keeping your business on track, even if your customer’s travel plans are derailed.

Lawrence Assock from Affirma will be at World Travel Market every day and if you would like to book appointment to find out more about Travel Disruption Insurance or any of our other products including, Cruise Protection, Supplier Failure Insurance or Scheduled Airline Failure Insurance, please call him on +44 07786 172077 or email l.assock@affirmainsurance.com.
