HÀ NỘI — PVI Insurance Corporation and Vietnam Airlines Corporation on Wednesday launched a comprehensive travel insurance package, TripCARE, to give customers complete peace of mind during each trip.
The insurance is provided by two firms in co-operation with Chubb Vietnam Insurance Company Limited as a reinsurer.
TripCARE has been available from September 29, 2017, on www.vietnamairlines.com. This is a product reserved for passengers of Vietnam Airlines when buying air tickets for domestic travel or departing from Việt Nam, in which, personal accident benefits amount to VNĐ1.6 billion (US$70,267) and medical expenses total up to VNĐ1 billion. Newborns (aged 7 days to under 2 years) travelling with TripCARE insurance will enjoy free insurance.
Deputy General Director of Vietnam Airlines, Trịnh Ngọc Thành, said the co-operation with PVI was one of the steps taken by Vietnam Airlines to understand the needs of customers for products and services when buying air tickets, affirming the company’s ongoing efforts to bring safe and comprehensive passenger services to Việt Nam.
