Wyomissing, Pa., December 29, 2008 â€” Beginning January 1, 2009, TravelSafe Insurance is offering an exclusive industry-first benefit, â€œOn Tripâ€ Purchase Protection which reimburses up to $300 per person for travel arrangements that are booked while traveling.
This new benefit will automatically be included at no additional cost in the TravelSafe Vacation, Premier and Prestige plans purchased on and after Thursday, January 1, 2009.
Travelers can be reimbursed up to $300 per person for the cost of unused, forfeited, non-refundable payments for shore excursions; theater, concert or event tickets/fees; or sightseeing tours or trips if such arrangements are made during the Trip (and are to be used prior to the Scheduled Return Date of the Trip) provided the trip is interrupted for a covered reason.
â€œItâ€™s the first benefit of its kind and an excellent selling tool for travel agents, particularly those agents selling cruises, where onboard purchases are so commonâ€ said Scott Perfetto, president, TravelSafe Insurance.
â€œWe work creatively and diligently to design policies that remove the exclusions and typical loop holes associated with all insurance policies. Our intent is to give as much back as possible,â€ said Perfetto. â€œWeâ€™re very excited to introduce another industry first.â€
