To review how we use the information you share with OZZI, please review our privacy policy which can be found here: https://ozzi.app/app-privacy/

To receive alerts for all nearby risks and to ensure OZZI is always updated with the latest safety information, location permission must be set to ‘Always’ within OZZI. We recommend location sharing is configured to ‘Always Allow’ OZZI access to your device location.

To ensure location sharing does not excessively drain your battery, allow OZZI access to motion or fitness data so location sharing is not active when your device is stationary.

If location sharing is only available when the app is open, OZZI will only automatically refresh with nearby risk warnings while the app is in the foreground.

We do not sell or share your location details with anyone. To provide our services, some of your information is transmitted to providers who enable service delivery. You can learn more about our privacy policy at this link: https://ozzi.app/app-privacy/

Travel insurance is essential for ensuring peace of mind during your trips. Here are some key reasons why you should consider purchasing travel insurance:

Medical Emergencies: Unexpected illnesses or injuries can occur while traveling. Travel insurance can cover medical expenses, including hospital stays, doctor visits, and emergency medical evacuations.
Trip Cancellations and Interruptions: Life is unpredictable, and sometimes trips need to be canceled or cut short due to unforeseen events like illness, family emergencies, or severe weather. Travel insurance can reimburse non-refundable trip costs.
Lost or Delayed Baggage: Travel insurance can help replace essential items if your baggage is lost, stolen, or delayed, ensuring you have what you need until your luggage is recovered.
Travel Delays: Flights and other transportation can be delayed for various reasons, potentially leading to additional expenses for accommodations, meals, and transportation. Travel insurance can cover these unexpected costs.
Assistance Services: Our travel insurance plans offer 24/7 assistance services that can help with emergency travel arrangements, finding medical facilities, or even replacing lost passports.
Coverage for COVID-19: In the current global climate, some travel insurance policies offer specific coverage for COVID-19-related medical expenses, trip cancellations, and quarantine costs.

By investing in travel insurance, you protect yourself from financial risks and potential inconveniences, ensuring a smoother and more enjoyable travel experience.

Choosing the right travel insurance plan depends on your specific needs, travel plans, and personal circumstances. Here are some factors to consider to help you select the most suitable plan:

  1. Type of Trip: Are you taking a short domestic trip, a long international vacation, or a multi-trip journey throughout the year? Some plans are better suited for single trips, while others offer annual coverage for frequent travelers.
  2. Destination: Your travel destination can influence the type of coverage you need. For example, traveling to a country with high medical costs may require a plan with higher medical coverage limits.
  3. Activities Planned: If you plan on participating in adventurous activities like skiing, scuba diving, or hiking, ensure your plan covers these activities. Some policies exclude certain high-risk activities, while others offer specialized coverage.
  4. Health and Age: Consider your health and age when selecting a plan. Some plans offer better coverage for seniors, while others may provide additional benefits for families traveling with children.
  5. Coverage Needs: Determine what aspects of coverage are most important to you:
    • Medical Coverage: Essential for international travel to cover potential medical expenses and emergency evacuations.
    • Trip Cancellation/Interruption: Important if you have significant prepaid and non-refundable trip costs.
    • Baggage and Personal Belongings: Useful if you’re carrying valuable items.
    • Travel Delay: Can help cover additional expenses if your trip is delayed.
  6. Budget: Compare the cost of different plans and what they offer. While it’s important to stay within your budget, ensure the plan provides adequate coverage for your needs.
  7. Pre-existing Conditions: If you have pre-existing medical conditions, look for plans that offer coverage for these conditions. Some policies may exclude them or require an additional premium.
  8. Policy Flexibility: Look for plans that allow you to customize coverage options or offer flexibility in case your plans change.
  9. Customer Reviews and Reputation: Research customer reviews and the reputation of the insurance provider. Choose a provider known for good customer service and hassle-free claims processing.

By carefully evaluating these factors, you can choose a travel insurance plan that best fits your needs and ensures a worry-free travel experience. If you need further assistance, our customer support team is here to help you select the perfect plan for your journey.

It’s best to purchase travel insurance as soon as you book your trip. Here’s why timing is important:

  1. Trip Cancellation Coverage: By buying insurance early, you secure coverage for trip cancellation benefits right away. This means if you need to cancel your trip due to covered reasons (such as illness, injury, or unforeseen events), you can get reimbursed for non-refundable expenses.
  2. Pre-existing Medical Conditions: Many travel insurance policies offer coverage for pre-existing medical conditions if the insurance is purchased within a certain time frame after making the initial trip deposit (usually within 10-21 days). Buying early ensures you’re eligible for this coverage.
  3. Weather-Related Issues: If you’re traveling during a season prone to hurricanes or other severe weather, purchasing insurance early can protect you from disruptions caused by these events, provided the insurance is bought before the weather event is named.
  4. Travel Supplier Financial Default: Some policies cover financial default of travel suppliers, such as airlines, cruise lines, or tour operators. This coverage is often only available if you buy insurance soon after making your first trip payment.
  5. Peace of Mind: Purchasing travel insurance as soon as you book your trip gives you peace of mind, knowing you’re protected from unforeseen circumstances that could affect your travel plans.

While you can purchase travel insurance up until the day before you leave, it’s advisable to buy it as soon as possible to take full advantage of the coverage options available. This ensures you’re protected from the moment you start planning your trip.

Duty of Care refers to the legal and moral obligation of employers to ensure the safety and well-being of their employees, especially when they are traveling for business. This encompasses a range of responsibilities to protect employees from potential risks and provide support in case of emergencies.

OZZI delivers government grade risk intelligence in a self-service mobile app experience to fulfill basic risk assessment and guidelines for safe travel for individuals and small or medium sized businesses.

To provide a more comprehensive duty of care experience to your employees, students, or parishioners we recommend pairing OZZI with a travel insurance policy from Trawick International.
