Your Global Albatross adviser is required by law to give you a personalised copy of his or her disclosure statement when you start doing business with us. Please see below a generic copy of Global Albatross’ disclosure statement.
The international health insurance companies we work with are licensed and registered in other countries and are bound to the laws and regulations of those countries. All insurers provide disputes resolution schemes. Any complaints about an insurer need to be submitted through the resolution services in the country in which they are registered. In the unlikely event that a complaint needs to be submitted to an insurer, Global Albatross will assist.
If we choose to correspond via telephone or email we have the right to record conversations for quality assurance reasons, training purposes and the prevention of fraud. Commitment to these communication methods represents consent on your part to any such recordings.
