Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection (BHTP) has announced the launch of a new lineup of travel insurance products for the U.S. market. The new products include ExactCare Value, ExactCare Extra, and enhancement to its existing ExtraCare product. 

Coverage details for each new product include:

  • ExactCare Extra: BHTP said it is the first travel insurance company to launch a concept that combines the immediate fixed-benefit payments featured in its existing AirCare product with traditional coverage, giving travelers the broadest travel and simplest protection possible
  • ExactCare Value: Full-featured product offering savvy travelers what they want most from travel insurance.
  • ExactCareBHTP’s most popular product is now more hassle-free – particularly for families, with the addition of family-friendly pricing. 

As travelers enter the busy and often weather-disrupted summer travel season, the new and enhanced ExactCare products will not only make quick travel assistance more accessible for any travel problem or disruption, but now travelers can receive “as it happens” claims payments for covered flight cancellations, tarmac delays or delayed and lost baggage, Berkshire Hathaway said.
