Holiday Disasters

CloseCircle picks up where travel insurance leaves off…

Nobody expects the worst to happen on their dream holiday – and for the most part it doesn’t. But nightmare scenarios such as extreme weather, civil unrest, terrorist activity and even street crime are out of your control. If they do occur, you can be left isolated, further at risk and potentially terrified and penniless. Your travel insurance covers you for medical emergencies only, but it is unlikely to cover you if your safety is at risk from these kinds of traumatic incident.

CloseCircle picks up where travel insurance leaves off. It acts like a virtual bodyguard in your pocket to help prevent you ever getting into dangerous situations, but if you do, it also gives you instant access to emergency support and rescue… at no extra cost.

real-LIFE STORIES

Hurricane in the Caribbean
For one US couple, a once in a lifetime Caribbean trip, turned into the ultimate holiday nightmare during Hurricane Irma in September 2017. Despite surviving the initial storm, reports of violent looting and the imminent arrival of a second hurricane, spread further panic amongst locals and holidaymakers.

The airport was closed and our clients were isolated and terrified. We implemented immediate crisis response including calls with a security expert who provided real-time advice on how to stay safe. We were able to get our clients aboard the only passenger cruise ship available and back to safety, within 48 hours.

During the same time, the US consulate was unable to arrange evacuations and the international airport took a further three days to re-open.
Carjacking in South Africa
In March 2018 a customer in South Africa was carjacked - all valuables were stolen, and one person violently assaulted.>Terrified and traumatised, our customer swiped the SOS panic-button and received an immediate call from our 24/7 security operations centre.

It contacted the local police and ambulance who arrived within minutes, and further arranged for a private security team to escort the group for the rest of their journey in the country.

We organised their direct flight back to the UK and the group were safely home, less than 48 hours after the attack, having had to pay nothing extra for their rescue and evacuation.
Earthquake in Indonesia
Jenny had been planning a trip of a lifetime to Bali with her husband for August 2018. A week before she left, the nearby island of Lombok experienced a 6.9 magnitude earthquake killing nearly 100 people and leaving over 20,000 people homeless. Unsure whether to go ahead with the holiday (already paid for) or stay at home safely as her family wanted, she went ahead with the trip, subscribing to CloseCircle to protect herself and give her family at home peace of mind, while she was away.

A week into the holiday, Jenny felt the first after shock from the earthquake. Immediately she received a call from the CloseCircle security team to check her safety. Further shocks also prompted immediate contact from the CloseCircle team who provided her with up-to-date information on the situation and reassured her of her safety. For Jenny’s family nervously waiting for news and assuming the worst back home, the reassurance of CloseCircle’s protection was invaluable.

As Jenny says, “Even before getting out to Bali, which we knew was unstable, it was reassuring for us and our families knowing that we had access to the CloseCircle service should anything happen. Once in Bali and having received the rapid response service from CloseCircle when we had several earthquake tremors, it meant we could relax and enjoy our holiday because there was someone looking out for us. Fantastic service”.
