IT Group named Travel Insured International as its new preferred supplier of travel insurance. The new relationship will provide IT Group’s member agents with a coordinated training program in Travel Insured’s Worldwide Trip Protector (WTP) plans along with strong earnings opportunities for agents who achieve their partnership program sales goals.
“The breadth of the protection plans offered, Travel Insured’s commitment to work with us to increase our affiliates’ protection product knowledge to the benefit of our customers, and the income potential presented to our member agencies were major factors in the decision to launch our business relationship," said Don Gould, president of IT Group.
IT Group includes agency members of four networks consolidated in 2002, including International Tours, Galaxsea Cruises & Tours, BTS Travel Network and The Travel Authority.
“Our goal in the travel market is to work with industry leading partners to add Worldwide Trip Protector plans to a greater number of travelers’ vacation bookings,” said Cynthia Perry, vice president of sales and industry relationships at Travel Insured International. “By working with IT Group and their committed agent professionals we can add protection to more trips and increase profitability in more agencies.”
The preferred partnership follows closely on April’s launch of Travel Insured’s new Program Lineup. The product offerings include Worldwide Trip Protector, the company’s signature comprehensive plan, as well as WTP Gold designed for travelers protecting luxury trips, and WTP Lite & Lite Expanded for budget-minded and family travelers.
Travel Insured plans also offer a Kids are Free feature and higher benefit limits, along with options to upgrade to Cancel for Any Reason, Cancel for Work Reasons, and Sports Coverage, among several value-added options. Visit www.travelinsured.com.
