Features

Ensuring a positive travel experience for your clients is at the heart of what you do as a travel agent. Nothing is more disconcerting than learning a client encountered medical or logistical mishaps while traveling, or that they had to cancel a trip due to an emergency. When you include travel protection on all your bookings you'll know you did everything possible to give your customers peace of mind.  And since we know how precious your time is, we're doing all we can to streamline your workflow so as to allow you to focus on what matters most...your customers. 

Easier and faster than ever! 

The redesigned Travel Protection browser/GUI now allows you to complete an insurance booking in 3 easy steps and in less than two minutes:

Step 1

We'll pull in your PNR details, eliminating the need to re-key information, and allow you to compare up to 3 policies side by side

Step 2

Once you've selected your product just enter the client's payment information and we'll merge the insurance policy details back into the Sabre PNR

Step 3

Create an accounting line with a single click for easy back office integration. Sabre does all the work so you don't have to... 

Cancel for Any Reason

Today more than ever, travelers want to know that they can cancel their trip and receive refunds on deposits should the unexpected happen before they depart on their vacation.

You can add "cancel for any reason" option when booking insurance through the Travel Protection browser/GUI. 

For agents 

  • Earn up to 45% commission - earn the same commission you would if booking direct with vendor
  • Vendors know who you are when booking through the Travel Protection browser so you'll see and book the same products you normally would and earn the same commission while benefitting from our streamlined workflow 

For agency customers 

Competitive travel protection coverage and pricing which includes:

  • Trip cancellation
  • Trip interruption
  • Baggage coverage
  • Air flight accidents
  • Coverage against financial defaults
  • Medical, and emergency evacuation
  • Cancel for any reason

Plus, your customers will have peace of mind...knowing that they're covered should the unforeseen happen before, during or after their trips.

Remember it's important for you to protect your agency too!  Should your customers decline travel protection, have them sign a waiver recognizing that they were offered travel protection but that they chose to decline it. It might make them think twice about not buying it, and it will certainly help ensure your peace of mind too!
