The FCAEA is happy to announce a new partnership with Insurance for Journalists. FCAEA members – whether staff or freelance – can benefit from discounted insurance cover on assignment and at home.
Cover includes accidental death and disablement including sickness and emergency medical evacuation back to your home country if required. Unlike other insurance, it covers journalists being transported in military vehicles including aeroplanes and helicopters. It is also rare in permitting journalists to buy insurance from wherever they are in the world, without insisting that you begin your travel in your home country. More details here.
The same provider also offers Insurance for Fixers, an insurance option for stringers and local production staff at just $5 a day.
