Is it only extremely wealthy individuals who are at risk?

Depending on where in the world people live and travel, the threat of kidnap and extortion can still be present, whether someone is rich or not, and wealth is often a relative concept.

Travel can be inherently risky because it places the insured in new and often unfamiliar environments. They may not be aware of the nature or level of security threats in each country, speak the language or know which areas to avoid. They will stand out from the local population and in many parts of the world, be attractive targets for criminal activity, due to their “western” status or perceived wealth.

Is the individual aware that security incidents can occur all over the world and in countries not traditionally considered “high Risk”?

Whilst the top 5 countries for kidnap for ransom are Nigeria, Mexico, Pakistan, Yemen and Syria (as at July 2013), NYA (our retained crisis prevention and response consultants), has provided security incident response services in the last 12 months in the UK, France, Germany, New Zealand and the USA, to name but a few.

Is the individual aware of the Frequency of incidents globally?

For example there were over 2,500 reported incidents for kidnap for ransom in Mexico alone in 2012. Furthermore it is estimated that around 70% of cases do not get reported due to fear of reprisal and police corruption.

Does your family face kidnap risks?

People face all kinds of extortion threats and not only in the areas traditionally considered as high risk. Stalking, tiger, express or disappearance threats happen anywhere in the world. The cover has expanded into this arena in order to provide cover for new and emerging crises.

Why bother with insurance, why not just take care of any losses yourself?

Financial loss from ransom payments and other expenses is truly not the only consideration. The policy provides guaranteed, immediate and unlimited access to the specialist response services of NYA International. Without this guarantee provided by the policy, you may not be able to access these specialist services when you need them most

Is it really worth the risk for as little as £500 per year?
