It’s always a good day in our offices when we can say, definitively, that we’re doing what we set out to do: Give travelers the best customer experience we can provide, so they can confidently navigate the tricky world of travel insurance. It’s not always easy and we’re not always perfect, but that’s the top-of-mind goal that governs everything we do.
Our weekly round-up today is a bit of a potpourri of topics. Ordinarily, we try to stick to a theme — security abroad, for example, or the Olympics. However, travel news this week has been a bit more eccentric than usual (or, possibly, the things that have caught our attention are more varied than usual). Still, we think this week’s collection of travel news stories boils down to one key takeaway: Things to keep your eye on. Here are the things we’ll be watching for new developments in the near future.
There’s no way to put this delicately: It’s been a scary week for world headlines. While the Olympics continue to wind down in Sochi with a pleasantly surprising lack of security drama (though the effects of that “dangerous face water” on Bob Costas brought a whole different kind of pathos), all is not necessarily quite so well outside the Olympic Village.
