Swindon, UK (PRWEB) October 27, 2007
Cheaptravelinsurance.com has appointed Europ Assistance to provide a complete tailored travel insurance solution which includes underwriting, claims handling and medical assistance to its customers.
This is the first time that Cheaptravelinsurance.com has developed its own in house travel insurance products resulting in a number of increased customer offerings. For example, backpackers can benefit from 18 months cover rather than the standard 12 months and customers will see the age restriction increase from 64 years to 80. As a result of a widening of the age restriction, cheaptravelinsurance.com believes it will see an increase in travel insurance sales to this sector of the market. Products are competitively priced, and offer customers the benefits they really need with a choice from three levels of cover which enables them to choose the cover that most appropriately suits their requirements.
James Hewson, Managing Director, Cheaptravelinsurance.com, comments, "I am pleased that we have been able to work with Europ Assistance to create our own Cheaptravelinsurance.com branded products. This provides us with flexibility in terms of benefits and pricing and allows us to more closely target our customers with specific offerings. We are confident in Europ Assistance's ability to provide comprehensive support and are particularly impressed with the expertise of their medical operations team which includes in house doctors and nurses 24/7."
Adds Paul Everett, Director of Sales and Client Services for Europ Assistance, "I am delighted that we have been chosen by Cheaptravelinsurance as their travel insurance provider. Europ Assistance has established itself as a timely and flexible partner and has a longstanding reputation in the marketplace for excellent high levels of service provision and cost containment following the acquisition of the Canadian medical Network (CMN). I look forward to working further with Cheaptravelinsurance to continue to grow their travel insurance business."
