ST. PETERSBURG, FL April 30, 2012 – Leading travel insurance comparison site Squaremouth.com highlights industry sales leader Travel Insured International. Since 2008, Travel Insured has lead the travel insurance industry with the highest percentage of premium sold. In the 1st quarter of 2012, it held the top spot in overall premium sold, with 19.76%. The travel insurance provider was 2nd in overall sales with 15.71%, a slight decrease compared to last year’s 17.90% of sales.
All Travel Insured plans include Emergency Medical, Medical Evacuation, Travel and Baggage Delay, Baggage and Personal Item Loss, as well as 24/7 Worldwide Emergency Travel Assistance. Travelers have the option to include Trip Cancellation, Cancel for Work Reasons, Cancel for Any Reason, or Sports Coverage.
“Travel Insured often has some of the least expensive trip cancellation policies for families traveling with children, making them a smart buy,” says Squaremouth CEO Chris Harvey.
Squaremouth’s top seller for 2011 and second best-selling plan for 2012 is Travel Insured’s Worldwide Trip Protector. Children under 18 are insured for free on this plan if their adult family member is on the same policy. It also features 100% Trip Cancellation, 150% Trip Interruption, $50,000 Emergency Medical, $500,000 Medical Evacuation, Terrorism, Financial Default, and Pre-existing Condition coverage.
Trip Protector Lite Expanded offers similar benefits with lower coverage amounts, while Trip Protector Lite is Travel Insured’s lowest cost medical plan. Both allow one child free per adult, making them favorites for budget conscious families.
“By offering kid-free pricing with certain programs, we have witnessed a steady growth in sales,” says Travel Insured Public Relations Manager Erin Weiland. “It has also provided us with a wider range of family clients and after viewing its success, we will continue to offer free full coverage to a child of an individual under the policy.”
Travel Insured offers four of Squaremouth’s 250+ travel insurance plans and has been sold on the comparison site since 2004.
