Every industry has felt the effects of the modern communications revolution. Prices are more transparent, consumers are better informed, and marketplaces are more competitive than ever before. The travel insurance industry, particularly, is one in which transparency of options, prices and policies can be of tremendous benefit to the consumer. Patrick Chong of Insuremore (http://insuremore.co.uk/) explains how this new flexibility can change the face of your holiday insurance.

Every industry has felt the effects of the modern communications revolution. Prices are more transparent, consumers are better informed, and marketplaces are more competitive than ever before. The travel insurance industry, particularly, is one in which transparency of options, prices and policies can be of tremendous benefit to the consumer. Patrick Chong of Insuremore (http://insuremore.co.uk/) explains how this new flexibility can change the face of your holiday insurance.

"With the internet in nearly every home in Britain, travel insurance can now be arranged quickly and conveniently at the customer's leisure.", claims Patrick Chong of Insuremore, "But this doesn't just mean that purchasing our services is easier, it also allows insurance firms to be more flexible and direct with our policies, meaning lower prices than ever before. There really is no excuse anymore."

Patrick went on to explain certain initiatives that he has overseen at Insuremore, a company that offers all forms of holiday insurance, "We offer simple, logical options, such as daily cover, which means that you don't pay for a single moment of insurance that you don't require. We also utilise the speed and accessibility of the internet by offering a 20% discount for those who book online, as well as instant decisions on claims made via your computer."

Mr.Chong feels particularly strongly about the internet, seeing it as a tool that has revolutionised the travel insurance industry, "I see our website as an interactive brochure. It should be as clear, attractive and straight-forward as possible. For example, we offer free 'Acts of Terrorism' coverage on our policies; people must know that they need not pay extra for such peace of mind. It must be obvious what is included and what is not. Our 'Kids Go Free' and 'Free Cruise and Golf cover' policies need to be evident, while the optional coverage for 'Winter Sports' or the choice of waiving an 'Excess' payment should be not in small print, but in bold."

The past few years have, indeed, seen a transformation of the way Insurance firms approach their business, and as the world grows smaller still we can only expect to see better service and greater savings for consumers worldwide.
