Easy to apply
A simple application process, with minimal detail required.
Plans cover you and your family members no matter where you reside or travel, including if you choose to leave your chosen career.
Choice of excess, reducing the cost of premiums by between 6% and 51%. Competitive premiums with a range of payment plans and currencies.
A membership pack and personalised insurance card is issued to ensure access to quality care at any medical facility.
Nil excess benefits
Excess is per person, per policy year. A nil excess applies for routine pregnancy and childbirth, dental treatment, evacuation, repatriation, wellness, optical and vaccination claims. This means you pay nothing toward these treatments or events.
Continuation of cover
Upon leaving employment as a pilot or cabin crew member, cover for any ongoing medical conditions continues, without the need for further underwriting.
Those who have a local health insurance policy through an employer can use the eligible claims made on the local policy to use up the excess on these plans.
Blood care programme
Screened blood is provided in an emergency wherever you are in the world. A global network of blood banks provides blood within 12-18 hours, couriered by anaesthetists or paramedics trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation and blood transfer.

One of Global Albatross’ best service features is advocating for our clients 24/7. We consistently turn claims decisions around through applying our intricate knowledge of policies, their inner workings and the fine print. We not only advocate during claim time, but also hold insurers to account over the life of the policy for their underwriting decisions, policy benefits and the level of customer service delivered, ensuring quality decisions and outcomes throughout.
Whether it be managing the refund of prepaid treatment expenses or liaising with the insurer during a medical emergency, we make certain all entitlements available under the policy are delivered. Global Albatross is adept at managing the flow of information between the insurer, medical facility and client, allowing you to focus on any medical situation at hand, rather than dealing with the insurer and financial aspects associated with receiving treatment.
Global Albatross won ‘Best Individual International Private Medical Insurance Intermediary’ at the prestigious Health Insurance Awards in London. The judges noted we are “exactly the sort of intermediary that is a credit to this industry,” provide “real expertise” in broking, and our approach to clients is “open, thorough and unbiased.” We were also nominated in three categories at the 2019 awards and two categories in 2018.
