What is an Underwriter?

Last Updated:

Short Answer

The underwriter provides financial backing for a travel insurance policy and creates its rules and regulations. 

More Detail

The underwriter is the financial institution that evaluates the risks of insuring a particular person or asset and uses that information to set premium pricing for insurance policies. Underwriters can also process claims for the provider.

This information can vary based on the travel insurance policy. Please review the policy certificate to verify coverage.
