Instant Payouts

If a customer needs a doctor abroad all they have to do is call the number on the back of their PassportCard. Our system will instantly calculate the costs and put that money straight onto their PassportCard. They then just use the card like a normal debit card. No paying out of their own pockets. It’s stress-free and easy, just how it should be.

No paperwork, No Hassle

PassportCard is the only travel insurer to settle claims in real time; literally within minutes. Say you have a high fever and you need medical help abroad – just call and we pay. No long claims process, no paperwork and no follow-ups. It’s that simple!

Revolutionary Trust

PassportCard trusts our customers and our customers trust us. We payout instantly and don’t second-guess medical claims. If our customers need us then we are there for them. That’s all there is to it.

Re–activation

One PassportCard is all you need. Just contact us before going abroad to activate your policy for a set length of time. Going away again next year? Just use the same card again. There’s no easier way of staying covered year in, year out.
