Travellers’ tales and hard-won wisdom at battleface travel insurance

battleface travel insurance policy specialises in providing cover for people travelling to and working in conflict zones and hostile regions around the world.

Here at Tangiers International it’s not all doom and gloom.

Sure, we handle everything from sudden political upheaval to natural disasters in some of the world’s most remote or dangerous regions.

But that’s only half the story.

We’re also fortunate enough to be surrounded by a network of intrepid travellers with a real thirst for adventure – photographers, journalists, humanitarians, entrepreneurs and plain old adventurers who call home anywhere they can get a decent wifi signal.

That means that for every disaster-averted or patient repatriated, we also get to hear the success stories of international travel: the lucky escapes, the once-in-a-lifetime experiences, the bucket-list-ticking trips to some of the planet’s most remote locations.

Our network of globetrotters congregates on the site of our travel medical insurance provider battleface travel insurance where they share tips, insights and travellers’ tales through the face ezine.

The blog, which recently had a design overhaul, features a wealth of information for the more ambitious traveller, including the latest vital tips for avoiding trouble, first-hand accounts of mishaps abroad, and insights into some of the planet’s emerging travel destinations.

Featuring infographics, tech news and interviews, Face is a one-stop-shop for anyone seeking inspiration or advice on a trip where risk plays a role.

If you’re unsure where to start, check out Mike Left’s piece on surviving riots and protests, Tommy Walker’s account of being arrested in Colombia, or Monica Axelsson’s cautionary tale of a motorbike crash in Sicily.


Our interviews connect you with people in the field: journalists, photographers, explorers, adventure travellers and solo wanderers. Our contributors send in dispatches from all over the world, covering the latest safety and security issues including kidnap situations, riots, protests and cyber issues.


Recent posts, meanwhile, include Mike’s reflections on the Tunisian capital Tunis in the wake of the Arab Spring, solo traveller Sarah Gayer’s tips on keeping harassers at bay and Jack Davidson’s guide to the fashion mistakes which instantly expose you as a foreigner.

A pretty diverse collection, I’m sure you’ll agree.

The strength of the content on face derives from the variety of contributors and the sheer breadth of their experiences.

Whether photographers, journalists, touring motorcyclists, humanitarians, expats, or digital nomads – face’s contributors have the sort of hard-won knowledge of hostile locations that can’t be found in a standard travel guide.

Unsurprisingly, they also reflect the ethos of battleface itself.

The company specialises in providing cover for people travelling to and working in conflict zones and hostile regions around the world. Designed by Tangiers Insurance Services, battleface is the go-to choice for those who recognise that, in an emergency, you want a team who understands high-risk travel.

The range of cover provided by battleface encompasses everything from adventure travel insurance to missionary insurance – all tied together by the support provided by Tangiers and its global network of in-country field agents.

This support means battleface policyholders can be confident that no matter where they are in the world, medical assessment, treatment and repatriation are being handled by professionals well-versed in overcoming political, geographic and medical obstacles to get them home safely.

And hopefully leave them with nothing more lasting than a travellers’ tale of their own.
