Through A Travel Professional
Travel professionals have long been the main channel for selling travel insurance, and they’re still some of the best advocates for travel insurance.
They can tell many stories about how travel insurance saved one of their travelers – or how someone opted not to buy travel insurance, and suffered the consequences.
Many travel professionals have their customers do one of two things in regard to travel insurance:
- Purchase the coverage
- Sign a waiver stating they were offered travel insurance but declined the offer
Many travel professionals have been in the business a decade or more, so they understand travel insurance and can do a good job explaining it to their customers.
However, most professionals only work with two or three travel insurance companies; if you want a plan that’s offered by a different company, you either have to buy direct or through an aggregator.
