What Our Customers Are Saying

As a journalist, finding cover for Ukraine was not an easy process. Lots of companies said they covered Ukraine, but then the small print essentially meant the policy was useless. In my opinion, Hotspot Cover's policy provides the best protection for me and the services of their assistance provider, Inherent Risk has been outstanding.

Heidi M

John S

We travel to the Middle East to countries like Iraq and Afghanistan multiple times per year and have always struggled to get insurance or when we did it was usually expensive. I’m really happy to have found Hotspot Cover.
