Commenting on today's news, Chris Carnicelli, CEO of Generali Global Assistance said, "InsureMyTrip is a leader in the travel insurance comparison space, an important distribution partner for us, and it's not surprising they are fast to launch our new plan offerings. We are very pleased that the new plans were able to be added to their site just in time for both the peak 2018 wave and travel seasons. InsureMyTrip customers will be happy to know that these plans come with the same great customer service from Generali Global Assistance they are used to and that we have enhanced our claims process for these plans through an online experience, that has increased customer satisfaction."
A unique feature of the Preferred and Premium plans is coverage for the loss, theft, damage or delay of sporting equipment – making them ideal for golf and ski vacations.
"We are pleased to be able to offer our customers greater options through these three plans, which include the best of Generali Global Assistance's previous plans, plus additional features that we think our customers will be excited about – especially the coverages for sporting equipment," added Executive Vice President Peter Evans of InsureMyTrip.
