Client sees Ripcord in action, now packs it with him every time he travels

‘You never know how good a vendor is until something goes wrong’


Ripcord Travel Protection client Steve Wood knows a thing or two about travel and travel insurance. Over the past year he has set foot on all of the world’s continents as a photographer, from a remote corner of the Serengeti to the mountains of New Zealand, and during his trip to the southernmost landmass, he saw what Ripcord could do for him one day.

Just like another client spoke to us about last week, Steve Wood was on the same ship as client Igor Natanzon, who broke his leg as their vessel crossed the tumultuous Drake Passage, and the evacuation that brought him off Antarctica and all the way home.

“It was just beyond belief how you guys handled the situation. It was a real confidence builder,” Steve said.

Over the past 11 months, the photographer has traveled to Antarctica and Patagonia, Tanzania, Europe and now he’s headed to Myanmar.

“You never know how good a vendor is until something goes wrong. Seeing how Ripcord performed in Antarctica gave me a lot of confidence to travel.”
