As a whole, the travel insurance industry offers consumers more value and ease of use today. Our plans include some of the most comprehensive benefit options available, and we continually develop better products based on customer feedback. In some cases we offer robust Cancel Anytime plans through partner booking sites and agencies. And now some policies may cover care for existing medical conditions. Travel delay and baggage protection, 24-hour assistance and concierge services are among popular benefits consumers can buy today.
Thanks to advances in our technology platforms, insurance has become easier to sell by our partners in online bookings and by agents using our award-winning AgentMax Online software. And for our customers, we’re paving the way for faster, simpler online claims filing and direct deposit payments within as little as 48 hours of claims being approved.
All of these factors contribute to better, more appealing travel protection for consumers at a time when they’re more aware of the value and need for it.
As a recent article in TIME Magazine pointed out, “Travel insurance isn’t becoming just more available and affordable—it’s also more necessary.”5
