A critical element to the holiday planning process

A critical element to the holiday planning process is insurance.

There’s nothing quite like the excitement of planning a holiday – especially when your travels take you far from home! Plotting your itinerary and seeking out the hidden gems enjoyed mostly by locals are part of the riveting build-up. A critical element to the planning process is insurance because getting caught short while you’re on your holiday can be really costly. And even more so if you’re in a foreign country. Mike Eloff – travel photographer, writer and adventurer – knows this only too well.

Mike travelled to Mauritius in 2017 and on his first day, he experienced an unfortunate accident while water skiing in the beautiful turquoise ocean. At the time, he did not have accidental injury cover and the unforeseen medical costs only added to the physical pain he endured.


Back on home turf, Lion’s Head is a regular route for Mike and now, thanks to Sanlam Go Cover - the world’s first on-demand accidental injury and death cover customised to provide insurance from 24 hours up to 90 days for up to 1 million Rand– Mike can run up the mountain with peace of mind.
