The holiday season in Zimbabwe always comes with a lot of excitement as people meet, visit, relax and enjoy with family, friends and relatives. Unfortunately, while no one chooses to be in an accident the holidays also come with high incidence of accidents.
During last year’s festive season 292 people were injured in 543 road accidents. While From December 15, 2015 to January 2, 2016, 130 people were killed in road traffic accidents compared to 102 during the corresponding period, that is December 15, 2014 to January, 2, 2015.
Many motorists in Zimbabwe have third party vehicle insurance which unfortunately does not cover the injured person’s welfare or offer immediate cover to the family of the deceased should a calamity occur.
So if you are taking a vacation somewhere exotic, or simply visiting or inviting your loved ones to spend the holidays with you. You need to be covered and go for the holidays with a peace of mind.
