Travel Insurance

One of the many clients I have dealt with over the years is a great guy by the name of Ian Jackson. Like many clients, we’ve stayed in touch since doing business. He was also kind enough to give me this testimonial a while back.

Ian has had a lifelong involvement in the insurance industry, and currently he is the Director of Professionals Travel Cover.

The reason I am writing about this today is that I just bought a Travel Insurance policy from them ! They have a very simple and easy to understand website, and the application form was completed in less than 2 minutes. It’s great to do business with people that have done business with you.

Unique Selling Proposition (USP)

Now we all know that most premium credit cards cover you for travel insurance if you travel overseas (not domestically though). But there is one big exclusion with these automatic policies – they do not cover you for most pre-existing medical conditions.

And this is why ProTravelCover is so unique – and so appealing. It covers people like me that are currently in good health, but may have had previous health issues. As some readers may know, I’ve had “frequent patient points” with my cardiologist! It doesn’t matter that I may have had heart attacks and stents in the past – as long as I am currently in good health, I am covered for this should something happen when overseas. That is such peace of mind.

My “Small Business Policy” also covers 4 people (you can get a policy for up to 10 people), so my wife and two sons are covered for multiple trips for a yearly premium of around $1000. That is excellent value in my opinion.

For The Record

As usual, I have not received any financial benefit from writing this article, nor will I be receiving any future benefits. I just like giving shout-outs to people that deserve it!
