Protection & Indemnity

Representing International Group P&I Clubs since 1973, GAC is a recognised leader in the protection & indemnity field providing 24/7 incident and claims handling as well as medical assistance.

When things go wrong on board a ship, time is of the essence. That’s why a speedy response is critical in an effective P&I (Protection & Indemnity) correspondent. P&I Clubs need prompt action and timely communication to ensure that any claims arising from an incident are fully investigated, documented and financial exposure minimised.

GAC has represented International Group P&I Clubs since 1973. Since then, our P&I Correspondent network has expanded and we are now recognised as a leader in the field. We take pride in being listed by all the 13 International Group Clubs in the Middle East region.

Our P&I team comprises of experienced, dedicated claims handlers with legal and technical expertise who maintain excellent relationships with local authorities, port officials, terminals and receivers which helps expedite case handling and minimise Principals’ financial exposure. We work 24 hours a day, seven days a week, all year round, to ensure prompt and proactive attendance. GAC’s LoU (Letter of Undertakings) on behalf of the Clubs is accepted by most receivers, ports and terminals around the world.

Since the late 1990s, we have also acted as correspondents for most leading Medical Assistance Principals. Our excellent local knowledge and relations with local authorities, embassies and hospitals ensure that we can make the best arrangements for: medical evacuations; doctors’ visits; air and road ambulance transportation; liaison and follow-up with hospitals or clinics; hotel accommodation; special travel arrangements; visa requirements; repatriation of human remains; and medical escorts, where necessary.

GAC offices in Africa, the Mediterranean, Middle East, Indian Subcontinent and Far East have a proven track record of handling over 3000 P&I and more than 2500 medical assistance cases every year.
