Nissan owners, already used to getting from A to B in complete safety, are to be offered even greater peace of mind whether they are behind the wheel of a hire car, jetting off to the sun, or halfway down a ski slope.
Nissan Travel Insurance, a new service initially being offered to 30,000 existing Nissan customers, will give comprehensive, flexible cover for everything from avalanches to lost luggage.
And as Nissan drivers come from all walks of life, the company has made sure its policies are flexible enough to offer something for everyone.
X-TRAIL-ers might want to make use of the optional winter sports cover, which protects against loss or damage to ski equipment, or piste closure caused by avalanches. For action-packed trips to sunnier climates, there is additional cover for scuba diving and parascending.
Or, for the less ‘extreme’ Nissan driver, there is comprehensive cover for all the normal holiday mishaps such as missed departures, airline failure and delayed baggage.
The premiums start at just £45 a year for an adult wanting annual European cover, rising to £130 for a whole family travelling world-wide, including the winter sports package.
There are special prices for over 65s (who can contact Nissan Travel Insurance for a quick, personal quote) and cheaper, single trip cover is available for those just holidaying once a year.
Andy Connell, Nissan Aftersales Marketing Manager, said: "Nissan has always placed great importance on quality, reliability, value and service. But until now, these traits have been applied to our cars. Nissan Travel Insurance draws on that dedication to customer care and support to reward our drivers with an outstanding policy.
"It represents excellent value for money, and won’t leave Nissan customers stranded when they need it most. We have even provided a 24-hour medical helpline for people to call, should they get into any difficulty while they’re away."
The annual policy will cover people for as many breaks as they take in the year (up to 31 days at a time), so won’t end when their two weeks of fun-in-the-sun are over. That means the policy extends to business trips, weekend breaks or, if the tan needs topping up, another holiday.Published 5 June 2002
