Voyager Insurance Services Limited has launched Voyager Plus Travel Insurance, which rebrands and replaces their former WEBroker Travel Insurance product.
Carl Carter, Managing Director, commented “We are excited about the launch of our new Voyager Plus Travel Insurance product, as it is packed with a wide range of features specifically designed to allow brokers and intermediaries to maximise their travel insurance sales with ease. Initial feedback from brokers has been exceptional as the new Voyager Plus Travel Insurance provides great flexibility and the widest range of cover, options and acceptability in the UK & EEA broker and intermediary travel insurance market”.
Voyager Plus Travel Insurance includes the following NEW features added for 2017:
- No Upper Age Limit for Single Trips
- Emergency Medical Expenses increased to £20 Million
- Ability to increase cancellation cover up to £10,000
- Ability to increase Annual Multi Trip Maximum Trip duration to up to 62 days
- Sports Equipment and Cycle Insurance Option
- Enhanced Trip Disruption Option now includes disruption due to an act of terrorism Focusing on the new Terrorism Disruption Cover.
Carter added, “Our research has shown that in these troubled times and following recent tragic events, over 51% of travellers now rate the risk of their holiday or travel plans being disrupted by an act of Terrorism as the biggest single thing they are most concerned about”. We have taken the travelling public’s concern on board and have now extended our “Enhanced Travel Disruption Option” to become an “Enhanced Travel or Terrorism Disruption Option” which makes it one of the only travel insurance policies in the mainstream market which offers this valuable ‘real world’ protection. This unique option now includes up to £5,000 Terrorism Disruption cover for cancellation, curtailment, travel delay, abandonment, missed departure or additional accommodation costs as a result as of an act of terrorism affecting any point of arrival or departure in a pre-booked itinerary or occurring within 40 miles of the booked accommodation within 31 days prior to departure or during the trip”, Carter added
“This option is designed to give peace of mind protection for the millions of independent travellers who do not have the protection of a Tour Operator to help them or cover additional costs in the event of travel disruption due to an act of terrorism. The option also continues to cover travel disruption situations not normally covered by travel insurance such as volcanic ash causing closure of airspace and having to remain abroad and incur additional accommodation costs, or even having to cancel or come home if the Foreign and Commonwealth office or World Health Organisation issue a new directive against travel too or a need to evacuate from the country you are travelling to”
