Enjoy peace of mind
When the responsibility of looking after the wellbeing of your crew falls on you,
you can rest assured the Bupa International Maritime plan will provide that
all-important cover.

With over 35 years experience, and looking after the health of eight million Bupa members,
we’re the largest international expatriate health insurance provider, providing access to
medical care for our members, wherever they are in the world.

Apart from the peace of mind this gives you, you’ll have access to over 5,500 participating
hospitals and clinics worldwide, where we can settle claims directly, or in over 80 currencies*.
A 24-hour, 365 days a year multi-lingual helpline is also available to you and your crew; run
by a dedicated team of professionals with up-to-date medical advice.

And, as you are more active than most in your job, you’ll find sports injuries are covered too.
If you’d like to know more about the benefits of Bupa International Maritime cover, take a look
at the benefit table and discover what you and your crew may be entitled to. You will need a
minimum of three people to qualify.

So let Bupa International Maritime cover take care of you and your crew. That will be one less
thing for you to think about.
