TORONTO, Dec. 18, 2012 /CNW/ - The Ingle Group of Companies announces
its expansion into Latin America with multilingual representatives in
Chile, Argentina, and Brazil. Business initiatives in these locations
add to Ingle International's existing operations across Canada, the US,
Mexico, the UK, Germany, and Malta, demonstrating the company's
dedication to opening offices in key markets around the world. Ingle
International has been providing customized insurance solutions to
international students, travellers, and expatriates worldwide since
1946, and the company's renewed commitment to Latin America comes at a
time when there is an increased need in this often underserved region.
"Latin America is of special interest to us," says former international
student and Ingle's Business Development Manager for Latin America,
Kira Miller. Born in Latin America to a Chilean mother and Argentinean
father, Ms. Miller has a deeper understanding of the needs of
travellers from this region of the world: "More and more, people in
Latin America are travelling outside of their own countries for
tourism, business, and education. Local travel insurance options don't
always offer the levels of benefits and services that Latin Americans
need, especially for travel to North America where health care costs
are so much higher. Ingle International's model of helping the client
navigate their options to find the best solution works well here.
Consumers need choice and information—and that's where we come in."
Ingle's Latin American operations will focus on its international
student business, where strengthening local strategic partnerships is
seen as the key to developing new business. "Educational institutions
have different needs than other organizations. And having offices on
both ends of the trip—in Latin America where students are coming from,
and in North America and Europe where students are going—is a real
advantage," says Robin Ingle, Chairman of Ingle International. "When it
comes to insurance, one size does not fit all. By working with local
partners in our locations around the world, we are making it a priority
to respond to local needs."
Through its sister company Intrepid 24/7, Ingle International will also
focus on expanding its medical provider network in the region,
resulting in improved emergency and security assistance services for
international travellers in Latin America.
