AXA Insurance Ireland and Renault Group Ireland, along with its dealer network, have joined forces to provide complimentary Renault cars complete with complimentary AXA motor insurance for the next 2 months for doctors and nurses returning from overseas to support the HSE during the Covid-19 crisis.
The only requirement from the medics is that they are Irish citizens, that they have proof of the fact that they have returned home to support the national response to the pandemic, and that they have a full driver’s licence (Irish or from another country).
This joint initiative is to acknowledge the exceptional contribution being made by returning medics to support the national response to the pandemic.
Speaking today, Antoinette McDonald, Director at AXA with responsibility for Direct, Partner and Customer Experience said: “Our frontline Doctors, Nurses and support staff have inspired the whole country and none more so than the many doctors and nurses now returning from as far away as Australia to help the national Covid-19 effort. We want to help these men and women get organised with practical things like cars and insurance as they prepare to return to hospitals around the country and this is the most practical way in which we can help.”
Paddy Magee, Country Operations Director for Renault Group Ireland said: “We as a nation are so grateful to all those working on the frontline treating patients and helping to combat the horrors of Covid-19. It shows real courage to come home from overseas to help us fight the battle and we really appreciate what these returning doctors and nurses are doing. We hope that supplying cars to these frontline medical staff will help to make their commutes to and from work a little easier and less stressful, and we and our dealer network are delighted to be of assistance in some small way”.
