Who is covered?
All beneficiaries who are registered on the Scheme are covered under this benefit.
The benefit covers members in South Africa while travelling outside the borders of South Africa and members who reside in the SADC region when travelling outside the borders of their country of residence.
SADC region members may not access benefits when travelling to South Africa, as they will have access to their standard benefits while in South Africa.
SADC region refers to a group of countries in southern Africa, i.e. Angola, Botswana, Comores, Democratic Republic of Congo, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Seychelles, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania (including Zanzibar), Zambia and Zimbabwe.
This benefit is managed by International SOS, who provides assistance to members while travelling.
