Jun 2, 2015

INDIANAPOLIS – June 2, 2015 – iTravelInsured®, Inc., a subsidiary of International Medical Group, Inc.® (IMG®) today announced enhancements to its travel programs available to U.S. family, student, business and other travelers.

The company designed the new travel products to meet the needs of a growing and increasingly diverse travel market. According to the U.S. Travel Association, Americans accounted for more than two billion leisure and business trips in 2014.

IMG President and CEO R. Brian Barwick said the enhancements to the company’s products builds upon a 25-year commitment to providing travel protection to all types of travelers.

“We’re constantly listening to our customers to learn how we can best meet their evolving travel needs,” Barwick said. “These new options reinforce our tagline, ‘Travel Protection Without Boundaries®,’ by widening the range of protection we are able to provide.”

The new iTravelInsured plans have insurance benefits underwritten by the United States Fire Insurance Company, and they were designed to fall into three tiers based on travelers’ needs:

  • Travel Lite: An existing plan that includes new benefits, such as reimbursement of miles and points, and rental car damage coverage
  • Travel SE: A new plan for families that provides coverage for children under the age of 18 at no additional charge per insured adult
  • Travel LX: iTraverInsured’s highest benefit level plan with ‘Cancel and/or Interruption for Any Reason’ coverage included within the base price

Amanda Winkle, Vice President of International Sales of IMG, believes the plans will be empowering to travel agents seeking to address their customers’ concerns about travel issues, from flight cancellations to medical emergencies, that often arise.

“Our plans account for many of the challenges our customers have faced in the past several years, and we are proud to roll out these plans in time for a busy travel season,” Winkle said.
