Healix International, the global travel risk management and international medical and security assistance provider, has been chosen by the innovative Dutch De Goudse insurance provider to deliver medical and travel assistance for its corporate clients.
Based in Gouda, the Netherlands, De Goudse has a proud history of innovation and delivering outstanding insurance and financial products for businesses and consumers. From its humble beginnings in 1924, the company now employs over 500 people, and offers a wide range of corporate and tailored business solutions, including business and personal travel insurance. In particular, the firm supports a number of NGOs which often face the challenge of sending workers to regions of the world where healthcare is less accessible or reliable.
Under this exciting new partnership, De Goudse’s clients will benefit from Healix’s extensive global experience in medical assistance should the unexpected happen. With a wealth of expertise, Healix International can manage and co-ordinate the medical treatment, evacuation and repatriation of people taken ill or injured while overseas.
De Goudse clients will also have 24/7 access to Healix’s dedicated team of experienced travel assistance coordinators who provide a full range of services, such as travel and visa advice, embassy referral and visa assistance, as well as lost luggage and arrangement of interpreters.
Les Davis, Team Manager Expatriates & Travel, De Goudse, said: “Trust in our partners is very important to us. As an independent family business we are proud to have achieved the Customer-Oriented Insurance Quality Mark. With Healix’s enviable reputation of being a leading provider of assistance services and risk management solutions, we are convinced they are the right partner for us.
“Healix International is helping us take our corporate offering to a new level. Because every sector is unique and has its own challenges, this agreement ensures we can give our clients the flexibility they need to offer their customers.
Through this partnership we are providing the reassurance that they will be covered for unexpected medical emergencies and will receive the best, vital support at a time of crisis.”
Juan Peña Núñez, Business Development Director, Healix International added: “We are delighted to be working with De Goudse to help extend its travel offering to corporate clients. The De Goudse name is synonymous with trust and it gives many major Dutch brands peace of mind that their clients are safe and fully supported in the event of an emergency.
