Warwick, RI, February 22, 2006–Premier online travel insurance aggregator InsureMyTrip.com announced today the newest member to join its exceptional corps of travel insurance companies and medical assistance companies: On Call International.
“We’re excited to partner with On Call,” commented Jim Grace, President and CEO of InsureMyTrip.com. “With medical evacuation coverage becoming an increasingly popular segment of travel insurance protection, On Call’s Standard, Extended Stay, and Short Term protection plans add even more depth and selection to our insurance comparison site. By featuring On Call’s medical evacuation products, we are upholding InsureMyTrip’s commitment to provide the best products, the best coverage, and the best care for our customers from the best companies.”
On Call is the leading medical assistance company in the leisure travel market, providing service to such firms as Carnival Corp (Carnival, Costa, Princess, Holland America, Cunard Cruise Lines) and tour companies such as National Leisure Group, Globus and Cosmos, and Grand Circle Tours. In 2005 On Call provided emergency medical transportation to over 1,500 patients from all over the world.
Each of On Call’s three medical evacuation plans offers unique features including financial coverage up to $1M and a hospital-of-choice benefit. The latter provides for transportation either to the nearest adequate facility or to a hospital of the patient’s own choosing if the traveler suffers an accident or a sudden illness and needs medical treatment. “Both of these components provide undeniable peace-of-mind value and assurance.”
“Because of our experience in providing service to North American travelers and our 27 affiliates worldwide, On Call is uniquely prepared to provide service to our travelers,” explained Michael Kelly, President and CEO of On Call. “We look forward to our partnership with InsureMyTrip.”
