Press Release (ePRNews.com) - GUILDFORD, England - Apr 12, 2016 - Voyager Insurance announces a relaunched new and improved version of Voyager Travel Insurance available through brokers and intermediaries on its WEBroker platform, used by approximately 1,000 brokers, along with a new ‘A+’ rated insurer with effect from 1st March 2016.
‘We are pleased to announce that Voyager Travel Insurance is now underwritten by Sirius International Insurance Corporation (UK Branch). The support of this A+ rated global insurer gives us the confidence to continue to innovate and grow distribution of our leading travel insurance product for brokers and intermediaries. We give brokers a truly flexible travel insurance solution with one of the widest range of features that will cater for the vast majority of their clients’ says Carl Carter, Director.
Carter went on to say: ‘additional Options available on the product, such as our popular Gadget cover and HolidayFromHellInsurance ™, have helped to boost sales of Voyager Travel Insurance by over 15% compared to sales during the previous year. By keeping Voyager Travel Insurance relevant to customers and meeting their needs we are helping brokers to compete against the big name direct travel insurance brands and comparison sites, in markets where quality and choice of cover is the key driver over just price.’
Voyager Travel Insurance compares very favourably against other broker based travel insurance products whilst still maintaining high levels of commission to brokers. In addition to this, due to its more flexible approach to pre-existing conditions, it can often be easier to purchase compared to other products operating strict medical screening regimes.
Carter commented on the impressive growth figures: ‘In addition to continuing to recruit many new brokers and intermediaries switching from other travel insurance providers, we’ve also secured some major UK brands who like the product’s flexibility, including features such as being available to both UK and EEA residents and cover being available to those customers who have already travelled. Features like these are really useful to companies who like to find solutions for their clients both online and offline, rather than saying ‘sorry, we can’t help’.’
