Company News

Travel Insured International this month celebrates the 15th anniversary of the company’s launch of business operations on Feb. 1, 1994. The company took shape in 1993, when new ownership acquired The Travelers Insurance Co. in Hartford, and separated travel insurance from its core business lines. Peter Gehris, a former executive at The Travelers, successfully acquired the travel protection division and launched Travel Insured International as a new, privately-capitalized company the following February.

Travel Insured builds on the strength of our independence from ownership ties or financial affiliations to underwriters or other financial companies with non-travel entities. As a privately-held company, Travel Insured can select financial partners based on their quality of support dedicated to travel insurance, which is our only business. In 15 years Travel Insured has grown to become the largest privately-held travel protection administrator in the U.S., and the fourth-largest travel protection firm in the U.S. with more than 5,000 travel-selling partners, including retailers, wholesalers and specialty travel organizations.

We thank each and every one of you, our valued and loyal industry partners, who have made our first 15 years so successful! We look forward to many more years of working together with you!
