Business: AXA Smart Traveller secures Filipino passengers and their loved ones on trips this holiday season

Filipinos can’t wait for the ‘bonus’ season and the extra-long break that comes with these celebrations. This special period allows us to focus on hanging out with family and friends, getting into the giving spirit, or even jetting off for adventures abroad.

However, the joy of these moments can quickly fade away in the face of last-minute panic. The stress of the holiday rush, combined with abrupt temperature changes, can render people more susceptible to illnesses. Therefore, it’s all the more essential to take necessary precautions and ensure coverage for any medical emergencies while traveling. As one of the leading insurance providers in the country, AXA Philippines recognizes the importance of alleviating travel anxieties.

“This is a season of joy, celebration, and exciting trips. Whether you’re visiting family abroad, enjoying an international trip with friends, or exploring a new city during the year-end break, our goal is to ensure your protection at every step, allowing you to immerse yourself in the cheer and charm of the season,” said Nandy Villar, Chief Marketing Officer at AXA Philippines.
