Travel agent Margaret Richcreek of Richcreek Vacation Center in Harrisburg, PA, kept her grateful travel insurance partners in mind during a recent interview with Harrisburg’s Patriot-News travel columnist Annette Reiff. In a “Midstate Traveler” column titled “Insurance Policy Can Help Protect Dream Vacation,” Richcreek was asked to provide her industry expertise on how the right insurance can save a client’s trip.
“Tour companies’ coverage is not as comprehensive as that from an insurance company,” Reiff wrote. “Richcreek has found that insurance sold by cruise lines is generally more expensive than buying coverage from an insurance company. Richcreek sells policies offered by Travel Insured International, whose least expensive policy includes coverage for trip cancellation, trip interruption, missed flight connections, baggage and personal effects, baggage delay, terrorism, emergency accident and medical expenses, emergency evacuation and transport of remains. The company’s most expensive policy offers higher coverage amounts for most of those problems along with additional coverage for preexisting medical conditions, financial default, accidental death and dismemberment.”
Reiff added Richcreek’s recommendation that “for all four levels of [Travel Insured’s] coverage, policy holders can buy optional protection that allows them to cancel for any reason up to 48 hours before departure and receive a 75 percent refund of nonrefundable costs.” Travel Insured thanks Margaret Richcreek, and all our loyal travel agent partners, for recommending Travel Insured to their clients, their friends and to the travel media! A second part of the Richcreek news interview will be covered in our next letter.
