ST. PETERSBURG, FL April 30, 2012 – Leading travel insurance comparison site, Squaremouth, spotlights top-selling provider Travelex Insurance Services. Travelex led 2011 in overall sales, with 19.86% and ranked 3rd in sales for the first quarter of 2012 with 13.59%.
The travel insurance provider offers accidental death policies, annual travel insurance, and trip cancellation packages. Travelex’s Travel Max was the third best selling plan in 2011 and holds 6th place for 2012. It features 100% Trip Cancellation, 150% Trip Interruption, $100,000 Emergency Medical, $1,000,000 Medical Evacuation, Hurricane and Weather, Terrorism, Financial Default, Employment Layoff and Pre-existing Condition coverage.
All of Travelex’s Emergency Medical plans have primary coverage, allowing claims to be filed directly with the travel insurance provider, eliminating any involvement of a traveler’s health insurance company.
“Travelers like primary medical insurance because it makes the claims process faster,” says Squaremouth CEO Chris Harvey. “However, it will not provide any better medical care and can sometimes be more expensive.”
Travelex is the only provider on the Squaremouth site that offers All Events Upgrade, which gives travelers the ability to cancel their trips for reasons beyond the typical cancellation coverage. For example, it can protect against an overbooked airline or a cruise or tour operator cancellation. However, it will not cover reasons associated with fear or loss of enjoyment and can raise premiums by almost 50%.
Travelex offers 10 of Squaremouth’s 250+ travel insurance policies and has been sold on the comparison site since 2003. Its underwriters carry at an Excellent rating from AM Best.
