Expatriate Home Insurance cover for Brits abroad
Expatriate Home Insurance - Welcome to our page detailing our insurance services for Expats. Before we start, perhaps we had better give our definition of what exactly we consider an Ex-pat to be because we have been asked on numerous occasions from people checking if they qualify for our holiday home insurance products. The term Ex pat is a shortened version of the word Expatriate and can be used to describe a person that is either living permanently or temporarily living away from the country of their birth. At Assetsure we deal with British Expatriates, and there are many living and working abroad. Now if we take this one stage further and point out the difference between an Ex pat & an Immigrant, well basically an immigrant tends to adopt the status and culture of the country they move too whereas an Expatriate will always consider the option of returning home if need be. We have no stipulation as to how long you have been abroad or how long you intend to stay there, however are products are not designed for persons that have renounced their UK citizenship and become a foreign national. Please call our office if you are in any doubt. Expatriate Insurance is not just one form of insurance product, it is a term that can be applied to any number of insurance products that have been designed for Brits living abroad,

Government statistics show that around 500 Britons leave the United Kingdom each day to either work or live abroad. For many it is the start of a whole new life on a permanent basis for others, it is merely for temporary work opportunities. However, one thing that many forget is medical insurance. Expatriate medical insurance is a specialist sector of the insurance market and one for which, you will need to speak to an advisor to fully understand the cover available. Many people believe that if they are travelling within an EEC country, they will be entitled to reciprocal health-care and to a certain extent this is correct but not everything will be covered. If you are working or living abroad, expatriate health insurance can give you peace of mind. There are a variety of health insurance policies available, depending on the part of the world you are living in and in some cases, it may even be possible to specify that you want any treatment to be carried out in the United Kingdom. In the first instance, we recommend that you speak to one of our trained advisers, they can go through all of the options for you and provide a quotation and benefit illustration for your perusal.
