To qualify for complimentary travel insurance through Bryte Travel, you have to use your Investec Visa card to buy tickets for an international trip that starts and ends in South Africa. The tickets can be purchased on behalf of anyone under 80 years of age (eg spouse, children, family and friends etc).

What your complimentary travel insurance covers

Complimentary travel insurance covers only medical emergencies and related expenses as well as personal accidents for a travel period of up to 90 days.

All travelers that you (the cardholder) have made the booking for, travelling on the same insured journey, will share your overall complimentary travel insurance cover threshold limits. Any other Investec Visa cardholder you have a booking for, will enjoy the full cover.

Why you could need additional cover

It is important to determine if your complimentary travel insurance meets your needs. If you also need cover for pre-existing medical conditions, inconvenience cover (eg baggage-related, travel cancellations and/or delays etc) as well as sport and adventure activities, you should consider buying additional insurance.

If your trip does not start in South Africa, please buy travel insurance in your country of residence. Inbound (traveling from abroad to South Africa), local, senior and group cover is also available.
