PMGY TRAVEL AND MEDICAL INSURANCE WITH BATTLEFACE

Although it isn’t the most exciting part of organising your trip, getting adequate travel insurance is a compulsory part of your PMGY volunteer program.

 

PMGY have teamed up with insurance provider battleface to create an affordable and comprehensive travel insurance policy for our volunteers. This optional policy is specifically designed to ensure PMGY volunteers have cover for all their travel essentials. There are two options to choose from:

 

PMGY (Standard) which includes cancellation, medical and emergency expenses, personal accident, baggage, money and passport and a number of limited sports and activities.

 

PMGY Plus (Comprehensive) which includes all of the above benefits plus a more comprehensive range of activities and sports if you’re planning on a more active volunteer placement.

 

The policy is available to anyone up to the age of 65 and covers you throughout any PMGY destination including countries under FCDO and government essential and non-essential travel advisories.

 

It is important that you make sure you’re covered for the whole time you are away, this includes the days spent travelling to/from your volunteer destination. So when working out which duration of cover to purchase you need to count the days you will be away including the day you fly out and the day you return home.

 

The PMGY insurance includes cover for medical expenses but excludes pre-existing medical conditions which required advice, surgery, treatment, referrals or investigations in the last 12 months. If you have a pre-existing medical condition, please read the terms and conditions of the insurance carefully before you buy to ensure that the policy is suitable for your needs.

 

Every plan includes 24/7 Emergency Travel and Medical Assistance services provided by battleface’ own Robin Assist. Robin Assist is battleface’ brand name for providing 24/7 responsive customer service, claims, emergency travel and medical assistance. Their operations team consists of multi-lingual talented humans who come from an extensive travel insurance service background. Robin Assist can help arrange for emergency medical evacuation, find doctors worldwide or make travel arrangements. The team also uses tech tools to process claims on-the-go with human support for guidance and help.

🙌 “My unforgettable journey with PMGY in Nepal and Sri Lanka offered starkly different yet equally enriching experiences. In Nepal, I immersed myself in the serene Buddhist lifestyle at Khawalung Monastery, teaching English to the most wonderfully cheeky monks, joining in with the chants and pujas before dawn, and wolfing down a healthy serving of the infamous dhal bhat for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Contrarily the tropics of Sri Lanka offered a vibrant whirlwind of activities inside PMGY’s London House, or outside in the neighbouring volunteer turtle-sanctuary; where we could gut recently caught fish by the Ambalagodan fisherman, to feed to the loggerheads and olive ridleys. Whilst both opportunities were polarising and unique from one another, I am eternally grateful that I could immerse myself in both, as they have taught me such valuable life-skills and responsibilities,but have also provided me some of the highlights of my life. 

I think it’s safe to say this reel only represents a fraction of the enjoyment and adventure I experienced in these two breathtakingly stunning countries, whether thats the fulfilment of a watching a student finally grasp and master a topic, or the satisfaction of providing food and care to our wonderful slippery co-inhabitants of this planet, and if that hasnt convinced you by now... what are you wating for? Go for it!” - JBM.
