CSA Travel Protection (CSA), dedicated to providing affordable travel insurance and emergency assistance services, today announced that STA Travel, a global travel specialist with 30 years experience helping students, teachers and young professionals travel the world, will now offer CSA travel plans to its customers when booking travel.
STA Travel’s customers can purchase travel insurance plans – available for as low as $48 – designed for the student traveler, which includes coverage for trip delays and cancellation, medical care and accidents, loss of baggage and other effects, as well as 24-hour worldwide assistance services.
“Travel insurance is a must-have for students planning a trip, and a safety net for their parents,” said Kevin Jacobs, STA Travel’s managing director. “CSA is a trusted brand among consumers and travel professionals alike, making it the perfect travel insurance choice for our young travelers.”
