Business Travel Insurance – Pinch pennies and pilfer perks

Posted in Business Travel, Travel Insurance by Tim on the October 28th, 2009

It’s certainly no secret that organisations worldwide have been actively seeking ways to cut costs as the global recession takes hold. Companies are trying to balance cost control with wider responsibilities such as environmentally sustainable travel. Yet the need to travel remains a fact of life in the business world – building new relationships, maintaining current ones and facilitating growth overseas. Whilst the digital age has certainly opened up a whole new world of communication – it seems there really is no substitute for a good old-fashioned, firm handshake.

Managing Director of Tim Hagger comments: “Whilst we here at gosimply appreciate the need for companies – ourselves included – to adopt some kind of corporate social responsibility in terms of sustainable business travel, we also recognise that this continues to be a growth market. As with all our products – our focus is on providing the most comprehensive package at the best possible price.”

Annual business Travel Insurance from not only represents excellent value for money,  it also includes cover for business documents and complimentary Priority Pass membership – providing access to over 600 airport lounges worldwide – a huge bonus for business people that travel on a regular basis.

Find your own American dream…..

As consumer taste and expectation become increasingly varied – many tour operators are now focusing solely on unconventional alternatives to the conventional sun, sea and sand getaway. After all, a relaxing holiday doesn’t necessarily have to involve lounging around reading a book in the sun does it?


Adventure holidays provide the perfect alternative for the growing number of travellers each year swapping margaritas and sun loungers for thrills, spills and excitement. With some of the most spectacular and diverse geography on earth – America is as good a place to start as any. There are a huge range of experiences for both the young and young at heart – from authentic cowboy camps and wilderness canoeing to UFO spotting and sunrise over the Grand Canyon.  Companies such as Trek America have been arranging tours across the US for 35 years, using their experience and knowledge of the local landscape to provide an experience that is second-to-none. For many though, it’s about more than just the thrills – adventure holidays bring together folk from all walks of life and all ages, offering a great way to find new friends on a truly global scale.

Whatever experience you choose, you’ll need adequate travel insurance. As usual, the best deals are to be found on the web with companies such as offering adventure holiday insurance packages with a great range of ‘bolt on’ extras, enabling you to tailor your policy to your exact needs – no matter what activities are on the itinerary. And for those of you designing your very own American dream, gosimply offer literally hundreds of US car hire locations throughout the continental United States.

This post is dedicated to the more intrepid travellers out there – those amongst you who like to get off the beaten path once in a while.

I’ve been having a look around at some of the more ‘out there’ holiday packages available across the globe, and I believe I’ve found one that might just whet the appetites of the adrenaline junkies.

adventure-travel-insurance-storm-chasingSo…how about a little storm chasing?  Seriously.  When I looked into this bona-fide American pastime, I couldn’t believe the number of websites dedicated to the subject, and for that matter the choice of organised tours available to the discerning crazy person.  If you don’t believe me, check out for a peek into the world of professional storm chasing.

For those who aren’t in the know, storm chasing involves (as you might have guessed) chasing storms across the mid-western United States.  Hold on a minute though – these aren’t just any storms – we’re talking tornadoes here.

Storm Chasing Adventure Tours are one of the premier operators in the US, and they’ve been treating thrill seekers from all corners of the globe to a wild ride for over a decade. They currently offer 6 day tours, travelling across a number of states throughout the Great Plains, boasting some of the best storm-chasing technology available. They’re currently taking bookings for 2010 – so why not give it go? You might surprise yourself, and it’ll certainly make for some interesting holiday snaps…oh, and you might want to seriously consider investing in some adventure travel insurance before you go, because you never know which way a twister is going to turn.

If you’ve already experienced a storm chasing tour, leave us a comment and let us know if it’s as exciting as it sounds.
