Cardholders of gocash, the first six-currency prepaid travel card from UAE Exchange, can now travel with more peace of mind, as there is yet another convenience coming their way. The leading remittance and foreign exchange brand is joining hands with AIG, a leading international insurance organisation, to provide travel insurance to gocash cardholders. With this new agreement, customers travelling using a gocash prepaid travel card are covered for travel inconveniences, personal accident benefits, free medical benefits, round-the-clock assistance and more.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Promoth Manghat, Vice President – Global Operations, UAE Exchange, said. “This kind of partnership for free insurance coverage is a first-of-its-kind arrangement in its class. UAE Exchange has once again set a standard and retained its position as a trendsetter in bringing the best to its customers. Towards this, we found the right partner in AIG.

Together with UAE Exchange, we can provide real protection for gocash cardholders, when they travel.”
In one go, gocash can be loaded with up to six currencies from a bouquet of 15.
