Jasmine Harman host of A Place In The Sun: Home or Away The new face for Overseas Assist July 2009


  28th July 2009

With nine out of ten homeowners abroad unaware who to contact in an emergency, one of the UK's largest holiday home insurers, Towergate Connect, has launched a helpline fronted by travel celebrity Jasmine Harman, to take the stress out of crises abroad.

The new service, 'Overseas Assist', includes a Pass the Phone interpretation service and a 24-hour Domestic Emergency Helpline, enabling thousands of Brits to overcome the difficulties that language barriers and foreign procedures can cause in the event of an emergency, as well as everyday living.

Towergate has selected one of the UK's most high-profile travel celebrities, Jasmine Harman, who is best known for her work on Channel 4's 'A Place in the Sun - Home or Away', to front the campaign. Jasmine, who lived in Portugal for three years presenting on Kiss FM Algarve and writing for many major travel publications, has now filmed all across the globe, from Bavaria to Barbados, Sydney to Slovenia and has a vast knowledge of the travel industry.

She said: "I cannot even begin to stress how important it is to be fully insured by a reputable provider when owning a home abroad.

"We often take it for granted that we know how to do day-to-day tasks in the UK but adjusting to life in a foreign country is an entirely new adventure and one that brings challenges, especially when dealing with a language barrier.

"Overseas Assist is an invaluable tool that will help you manage your life abroad. As a translation service, it goes beyond all regular insurance policies, providing clients with help in all aspects of living overseas, from calling the emergency services in a crisis to simply booking a table in a restaurant.

"Holiday homes are there to bring fun and relaxation make sure you have all the necessary insurances in place to allow you to sit back and enjoy yourself."

The service, which can be used by any tenant or guest using the holiday home, offers assistance following an emergency or crime, help with lost passports or credit cards, a booking service for medical appointments, restaurants or leisure activities, help locating tradesmen or professional services and over-the-phone call credit top-up.

In addition, the 24-hour Domestic Helpline, acts as a first point of contact following domestic emergencies, such as burglary or burst water pipes.

Lewis Hopkins, Managing Director of Towergate Connect, said: "Many people find themselves in situations abroad where they are unable to communicate effectively with authorities and businesses or to deal with an emergency.

"With Overseas Assist you can take comfort that, even in the most stressful of situations, you can contact an English-speaking assistant who has local knowledge, and can act as a translator to ensure you get the help you need. This is an excellent peace-of-mind service that we are proud to offer our clients."

Towergate Connect which is part of the largest independent insurance intermediary in Europe has been a specialist provider of holiday home insurance both in the UK and abroad, as well as holiday chalet insurance and static caravan insurance for over 25 years.

Towergate is Europe's largest independently owned insurance intermediary and a driving force within the industry. Offering over 200 specialist insurance products, underpinned by strong relationships with some of the UK's leading insurance companies, we're committed to providing customers with insurance they can trust. insurance4carhire.com is a tradining name of Towergate Underwriting Group Ltd
