International income protection wherever you are

International income protection for anyone working in a high-risk area or a hazardous occupation is essential, but often proves far from easy to organise. Bellwood Prestbury is a Lloyd’s Coverholder for international income protection insurance, enabling us to create bespoke policies to meet your precise needs, fast.

International income protection insurance or expat income protection insurance is designed to provide you with compensation for loss of income should you suffer an accident or serious illness that prevents you from working.

Bellwood Prestbury is an expert in organising quality cover through Lloyd’s, London. Our international income protection policies are valid in war zones, terrorist areas or remote regions with poor medical infrastructure. We can also cover hazardous occupations like armed security contractors or oil and gas consultants even when you’re engaged in active operations in Afghanistan, Iraq or Africa .

Flexible expat income protection

Bellwood Prestbury can help organise your expat income protection cover to provide a lump sum or an ongoing monthly income in the event of an accident or illness. We can help you to arrive at the right balance between premiums and potential compensation and ensure that the waiting period is right for your circumstances. We tailor-make international income protection plans to meet your specific requirements in high-risk territories, right across the globe.
