INDIANAPOLIS, March 4, 2019 /CNW/ -- As the number of cruise-goers continues to rise around the world, travelers can now cruise with confidence with the official launch of SafeCruise℠.
An exclusive travel protection plan, SafeCruise℠ was created by VisitorsCoverage® Inc. in partnership with global benefits and assistance services leader International Medical Group® (IMG®). The travel protection plan is available to vacationers seeking to protect themselves from some of the most common issues that impact cruise-goers.
"At IMG, we've always taken great pride in offering innovative insurance products to the globally mobile community," said Glenn Maykish, Global Head of Product and Strategy at IMG. "We are thrilled to partner with VisitorsCoverage on SafeCruise℠ and expect this exclusive travel protection plan to benefit cruisers."
The plan features coverage for trip cancellation, trip interruption, emergency medical evacuation, plus other benefits that provide insureds with significant coverage for unexpected events. For cruisers seeking benefits for cancellation due to non-covered events, SafeCruise℠ features an optional "cancel for any reason" benefit which can reimburse up to 75 percent of prepaid, non-refundable trip costs.
"We are always looking for ways to better serve our customers," said VisitorsCoverage CEO Rajeev Shrivastava. "With the rising number of cruisers each year, we felt there was a real need for a travel protection plan to cater towards their specific needs and SafeCruise℠ was born."
