Last Updated:

ST. PETERSBURG, FL March 31, 2015 – Travel insurance comparison site, Squaremouth, allows travelers to quote, compare, and purchase travel insurance from every major provider in the US. To help customers learn more about the companies on their website, Squaremouth has launched the travel insurance provider spotlight series. In this article, Squaremouth shines a light on Travelex Insurance Services.

Travelex’s history dates back to 1955, when Tele-Trip Insurance, Mutual of Omaha’s travel insurance subsidiary company, began offering travel protection and flight accident plans. In 1996, the Travelex Group purchased Tele-Trip Insurance, founding Travelex Insurance Services. Today, Travelex is headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska, with sales offices around the country.

The “ExFactor”
Travelex offers an exclusive “ExFactor” advantage, which provides their customers with experienced people, excellent protection plans and exceptional customer care. Combined, these “ExFactors” help provide each Travelex client, customer, and travel agent with a VIP experience.

Travelex’s “excellent protection plans” offer 24-hour coverage for trip cancellations, flight delays, medical emergencies including evacuations and other benefits. Many of the Travelex plans provide First Payer Coverage with no deductible, meaning they will pay first but may recover funds from medical & other collectible insurance plans. In addition, Travelex provides one of the most ‘family friendly’ plans on the market, offering coverage for children under age 21 at no additional charge when accompanied by a covered adult family member.

Classic Plans with a Modern Twist
Travelex has progressed through the evolution of travel insurance products which started as a simple flight accidental death and dismemberment plans, to the broad coverage policies they sell today. The company continues to modify and upgrade their plans to meet the needs of modern leisure travelers, by offering pre-existing medical condition coverage, family friendly kids-free pricing, pet insurance provisions and ‘cancel for any reason’ upgrades.

Personalized Customer Support
Prior to their trip, Travelex customers can rely on the company’s experienced customer solutions representatives’ product and benefit knowledge for help answering real-life scenarios, providing insurance quotes, and processing enrollments.

For assistance after purchase, these representatives are available to expedite policy modifications, from travel date corrections to adding coverage for additional travel components.

During a traveler’s trip, Travelex’s partnership with On Call International provides world-class travel assistance when a need arises. Regardless of a traveler’s location, multilingual assistance is available 24/7, 365 days a year.

Travelex’s customer solution center’s focus is to exceed the expectations of travelers, make travel insurance easy, and treat every customer as a VIP.

“Travelex is extremely proud of the fact we are easy to do business with,” said Michael Ambrose, President of Travelex Insurance Services. “We take the time to make certain every customer receives prompt quality assistance in answering all their questions — our superior service ensures customers keep coming back.”
