Specialist overseas contractor insurance for Afghanistan

TXM Recruit needed flexible cover for overseas contractors being placed into US military installations in Afghanistan: insurance through Bellwood Prestbury’s Lloyd’s Coverholder status met all of their requirements.

TXM’s specialist Defence arm were asked to find expert warehousemen who could receive, catalogue and store valuable military equipment. The job could only be carried out by ex-military staff because of the experience and clearance required.

TXM needed to provide cover for accidental death, injury and medical expenses.

Insurance for Afghanistan needs to include war and terrorism, so non-standard cover is required. The job also involves handling potentially dangerous equipment. In addition, TXM were unsure how long each individual contractor might be overseas in Afghanistan, or how long the overall project might take, so they needed a flexible solution that would be easy to administer.

When Ian Tompsett, Operations Manager – Defence  at TXM Recruit contacted us, he was surprised to find that we already had a tried and tested solution. 

Bellwood Prestbury’s Global Life and Accident cover, a specialist Lloyd’s, London personal accident policy, provides the right level of cover in high risk countries like Afghanistan. It also covers high risk occupations.

To meet the flexibility TXM needed, our experienced Account Managers control a monthly travel listing ensuring that TXM only pay a premium for the exact number of ‘at risk’ days each month. Because Bellwood Prestbury is a Lloyd’s Coverholder, we can also amend the cover at short-notice, giving TXM the opportunity to extend the policy until the overseas contractors have completed the cataloguing and warehousing required.

Ian Tompsett at TXM Recruit has been pleased with the service he has received. He said: “We really appreciate your flexible approach; as this works well with our clients ever changing requirements.
