overseas home owners don't know who to call in an emergency. And that's why holiday
home insurance specialists Towergate Connect launched Towergate Overseas
Assist – the property insurance package with reassurance built-in. Overseas holiday

provides a free 24 hour emergency helpline and a multilingual telephone interpreter
