All Rotarians and Partners travelling overseas to authorised Rotary events - for example the 2012 RI Convention in Bangkok - can avail themselves of insurance cover by the Rotary Personal Accident and Travel Insurance Policy - at no cost. The policy will cover you for the duration of the Rotary part of your trip, plus up to 60 days private travel, providing the overall duration of the trip - home to home - is not more than 90 days. Any pre-existing medical conditions will be covered, provided you obtain a letter from your GP saying that you are "fit to travel". "Medical and additional expenses" cover for persons up to 79 years of age is "unlimited".  For Rotarians (and partners) 80 years of age or over, travelling to an Annual RI Convention, the benefits for "medical and additional expenses" is limited to $50,000.

Interested Rotarians can arrange cover by contacting the District Insurance Officer - Brian Vidler -
