Tailored coverage for overseas work: protecting you wherever you go

Searching for the right cover for overseas work can be time-consuming and confusing. At C&D Specialist Insurance, we understand the unique challenges you face in your industry, including the work you do, the locations you work in, and the potential risks involved.

Some examples of high-risk locations include conflict zones (Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Syria, Somalia), various parts of Africa (Nigeria, Ivory Coast), and countries with a high rate of HIV infection.

If you're unsure whether the country you work in is on the high-risk list, give us a call to discuss. Being on the list doesn't necessarily mean you can't get cover—it depends on factors like the length of rotation and other considerations. Let us help you find the right coverage for your overseas work.

Frequently asked questions

  • Will the premiums go up because of the work I do?
    99% of the time we can arrange cover on standard terms, meaning there will be no increase in premiums because of your job.
  • Will I be covered whilst at work?
    Yes, you’ll be covered 100% of the time 24/7/365.
  • Will I be covered travelling to and from the Rig/Installation either by a Helicopter or Vessel?
    Yes, you’ll be covered 100% of the time regardless of the mode of travel.
  • Can you also arrange cover for my partner?
    Yes, we can provide cover for partners on the same basis. We’ll just need their DOB, smoker status and how much cover they want and for how long.
  • Will I be covered if I work overseas?
    Yes, we can arrange cover for people working overseas. There are some location hotspots (such as conflict zones), but that doesn’t mean we can’t get you covered. We’ll just need to ask a few additional questions.
  • Will my children be covered under a critical illness policy?
    Most policies provide a level of cover for children if diagnosed with a specified critical illness. This is typically £25,000 but could increase to £50,000 depending on the policy and provider.
  • If I take out a policy will be the monthly premiums stay the same or will they increase each year?
    All life & critical illness policies we arrange are on a guaranteed premium basis, meaning the monthly costs will stay the same for the duration of the policy.
  • Who will get the money if I die?
    We write all policies in trust meaning if you were to die, the lump sum will pay out to the beneficiaries you have selected, which avoids any potential inheritance tax and usually pays out within 30 days of a claim.
  • Can I arrange the cover over the phone?
    Yes, we complete all applications over the phone, which usually takes no longer than 15-20 minutes, and subject to standard underwriting you could be covered immediately.
  • I already have a policy, can you review this?
    Yes, we can. Generally, if you have an older style policy, this may have exclusions or increased premiums because of your occupation. We may be able to replace it, so it has no exclusions or increased premiums.
