Kidnap and Ransom Insurance


Kidnap, Ransom, Extortion and Threats

Travelers has been writing Kidnap and Ransom insurance since 1977 and, as a result, has one of the most experienced underwriting teams in the market place. Being well established insurers in this niche market, we have a track record for innovation, expertise and providing a service that is bespoke to the clients individual needs.

The safety of your client’s employees and associates is paramount. Kidnap and Ransom cover is a specialised insurance that gives peace of mind to the clients that conduct business in high risk countries. 

Dealing with a kidnap and ransom can be costly and can expose the client's organisation to potential legal action from employees and their families. However, kidnap and ransom insurance can reimburse ransom and associated costs, as well as providing access to valuable expert consultants who can advise on managing an insured event.

Along with the benefits of the experienced Travelers underwriters through our Kidnap and Ransom policy,  your clients will gain access to Travelers exclusive crisis management team, Constellis. Collectively the group is the world’s largest dedicated risk management service and can provide 24/7 assistance in more than 30 countries. The policy also provides clients with an introductory call with Constellis, to establish a tailored plan in the case of an event and the preventative measures clients take to ensure the best outcome to an incident.
