Repatriation Insurance
We require you to have insurance covering you for repatriation for the whole length of stay at S&A. If you do not have any repatriation insurance, we will arrange relevant cover at £15.
If you choose to take out your own insurance, we request you bring documentary evidence of this to the interview.
Key features of the insurance we offer are:
Cover for personal accidents such as death, loss of limbs, sight, speech and hearing or permanent total disablement
Cover for repatriation and associated costs such as, additional travel or accommodation following accidental physical injury or illness
Cover for personal liability for death, injury or illness to another person and accidental damage to the property of another.
The period of cover is seasonal and starts from the date you arrive at S&A and ends on the date you depart from S&A.
Please note that repatriation insurance is not travel insurance. We strongly recommend you take out travel insurance separately with the insurer of your choice, as S&A does not provide this service.

Travel Arrangements (Bulgaria only)
It would be an enormous benefit to you if the travel arrangements from your home country directly to the S&A site are co-ordinated by us. This will take a lot of stress away from you, especially if your understanding of English is limited. It will also save your time and money, as directly organised collective travel from your country to the workplace eliminates travel cost from bus stations, airports or train stations in the UK to your resident site.
We are able to negotiate travel at a cheaper cost from Bulgaria. We charge £15.75 for the travel arrangement service from this country. This is only payable if you choose to travel with S & A contracted Travel Agents. The cost of the travel is additional and will be charged to you. The cost of the travel arrangement service and travel is payable in your home country before any travel arrangements are made. We urge you not to travel in your own car as NO CARS ARE ALLOWED ON THE COMPANY PREMISES.

The travel arrangements will be as follows:

Sofia Airport – UK Airport (two way ticket)
Travel by coach to Hernhill Nursery/ Brook Farm/Brierley Court (one way)
The cost is £ 281.75
