WARWICK, RI, January 28, 2008— Consumer demand for group insurance is on the rise, reports InsureMyTrip.com, the nation’s leading online provider of travel insurance; a fact largely attributed to the rapidly growing trend toward group travel.
“From family reunions to school and mission trips, more people than ever are traveling as part of an organized group,” says Jim Grace, industry expert and President and CEO of InsureMyTrip. “Group coverage is one of the many cost-saving benefits of traveling in numbers.” If you are traveling with ten or more people to the same destination, you are eligible for group insurance coverage.
“When traveling as part of a group one thing is certain,” continues Grace, “as the numbers in your party increase, so too do the odds that your travels may be impacted in some fashion. That’s when travel insurance is no longer just an option, it’s a necessity. “Trip Cancellation Package Policies and Travel Medical Insurance Policies offer comprehensive coverage and are most popular with many types of travel groups including:
- Wedding Groups
- Family Reunions
- Professional Association Meetings
- Business Incentive Events
- School Excursions
- Sporting & Athletic Events
- Religious/Church Pilgrimages
Launched in 2003, InsureMyGroup.com is the original travel insurance portal just for group travelers. InsureMyGroup.com provides both trip cancellation as well as travel medical plans, so group travelers can rate, compare, analyze and buy travel insurance all in a completely secure environment. “We have a simplified quoting process,” explains Grace, “which captures only the basic information needed to obtain a quote, and allows groups to share their findings with one another via email. Once they are prepared to purchase, they can complete the transaction online for their entire group roster.”
