Newly enhanced Travel App features Google Places as well as a convenient option to purchase travel insurance while on the go

TORONTO, Oct. 28, 2013 /CNW/ - KANETIX is excited to announce today its newly updated Travel App to enhance the travelling experience for Canadians.  Now iPhone, iPad and iPod device owners will be able to enjoy their trip; by purchasing travel insurance and finding destinations while travelling.

The free reloaded Travel App features an easy-to-use menu for travellers to virtually find anything and everything they need while away with the use of their mobile device. Travellers can also obtain up to five travel insurance quotes in ranking order from low to high as well as obtaining quotes for a single trip, multitrip, all inclusive and trip cancellation insurance coverage.

"KANETIX's Travel App gives consumers the ability to seamlessly shop and purchase travel insurance while on the go," says Andrew Lo, chief marketing officer, KANETIX.ca. "The new features of this app will also help consumers to find the amenities they need to enjoy their vacation."

KANETIX's Travel App now features Google Places, a feature which will give consumers the option to find the nearest:

  • Restaurants
  • Banks/ATMs
  • Hotels
  • Hospitals
  • Gas stations

The app also gives travellers a detailed purchase summary so they can conveniently view all of the fine details of their travel insurance policy in an easy-to-read PDF. And for travellers who forget to buy travel insurance - KANETIX's Travel App includes alarm reminders to remind travellers to buy travel insurance when going away.

Consumers can download KANETIX's free Travel App by either downloading the app from KANETIX.ca or by visiting the Apple App store by searching for the keyword KANETIX on any Apple device.
