Travel Insured International has launched a new, stronger Airline Ticket Protector plan that strengthens trip protection for leisure or business travelers for whom airline tickets are the primary travel expense. The new plan, with affordable base prices starting at $16 per passenger, was launched for online only at www.travelinsured.com.
The new Airline Ticket Protector increases maximum available coverage to ticket costs valued up to $3,500 for Trip Cancellation or Trip Interruption coverage. This is a sharp upgrade from the $1,000 maximum ticket price covered under the old plan, Travel Insured says.
Travelers may qualify for a waiver of pre-existing medical conditions if the plan is purchased within 14 days of the initial trip deposit. Trip Delay coverage is increased five-fold to a maximum $500 with no daily limit compared to the $100 limit under the previous plan, and Baggage Delay coverage has been doubled in the new plan to a $200 maximum compared to $100 in the previous one, Travel Insured says.
New coverage included for the first time in the New Airline Ticket Protector is a maximum $500 Missed Connection benefit and $1,000 in Lost Baggage & Personal Effects coverage.
Travel agents who have previously signed up to sell the old Airline Ticket Protector product from Travel Insured are automatically credited for sales and commission when they begin booking the new plan online. Agents unsure about whether they are signed up should contact their Travel Insured representative at 1-800-243-3174 for prompt assistance in confirming or updating their account.
The new Airline Ticket Protector plan has been designed for leisure travelers flying to visit friends and relatives, independent vacationers who have prepaid for airline tickets but are keeping land arrangements flexible for payment during travel, or business travelers for whom land components may be hosted but airline tickets are a budgeted expense, Travel Insured reports.
Travelers in need of more comprehensive coverage can take advantage of new value-added options in the new Airline Trip Protector plan.
