WARWICK, RI, September 19, 2012—When InsureMyTrip.com, the leading online travel insurance comparison site launched its revolutionary Ratings & Reviews (R&R) insurance feature last summer, it was the start of something big. With R&R in place, InsureMyTrip became the first-ever customer-integrated travel insurance buying platform on the web today. It was a notable advancement for InsureMyTrip and a major advantage for our customers. A year later, InsureMyTrip is celebrating another exciting milestone achievement: the 10,000th Ratings & Reviews customer entry.
“When we launched Ratings & Reviews a year ago, our goal was to create a trusted space for our customers to share and compare their travel insurance experiences,” explains Jim Grace, President and CEO of InsureMyTrip. “Ten thousand reviews later, R&R has become so much more; it is a community of travelers for travelers seeking and offering unbiased opinions and honest impressions of travel protection products.”
Ratings & Reviews provides a unique lens on the travel insurance marketplace not available on any other site by offering an exclusive space for travelers to have an open dialogue and information exchange with a community of protection-conscious peers like themselves. “Now for example, traveler Christine from Des Moines, Iowa, and the author of the 10,000th R&R review can share what she thinks about the package policy she purchased for a recent trip to Peru. “Thanks to Christine and all the members of the R&R community, InsureMyTrip customers can count themselves among the most well-informed and confident travel insurance buyers in the world,” says Grace.
“Every one of the 9,999 entries leading up to this moment are responsible for building the foundation that makes R&R the incredible resource that it is and will continue to be,” explains Grace, “but we’d be remiss if we didn’t honor the 10,000th milestone in a special way. To celebrate and say ‘thank you’ to Christine for her input and support of Ratings & Reviews, we’re sending her and a companion to the Ten Thousand Waves Japanese Spa & Resort in Santa Fe, New Mexico for a different kind of R&R,” jokes Grace.
“We’re delighted to be a part of this celebration event of 10,000 reviews,” adds Deborah Fleig, Director of Ten Thousand Waves Tours. “Much like the Ten Thousand Waves Japanese Spa & Resort, InsureMyTrip’s Ratings & Reviews feature is about helping others and creating a unique experience. We always recommend all of the travelers who join our Japanese Hot Springs Tours buy their insurance through InsureMyTrip.com —-as do we each time we venture away from Santa Fe.”
