Travel Insurance Consultants - Revamps Product

19 February 2007 Travel Insurance Consultants

Travel Insurance Consultants (TIC) has spent the last 18 months gathering information and analysing every detail of its products, claims and local and international travel insurance trends. Using this data, the leading travel insurance company in South Africa has put together the most exciting travel insurance product range the travel industry has ever worked with!

George Novis, TIC's Managing Director, says, "We've revamped the whole look and feel of our product, so that its more user-friendly, and in terms of benefits and pricing, it is the most competitive product on the market. Our online booking engine "SystemaTIC"  has also been revamped, and is designed to make issuing policies as easy as possible. The all-in-one system deals with quotes, sales reports, policy changes and credit card payments and is, of course, compliant with all FAIS legislation."

So what changes has TIC initiated?

"The new product introduces family rates, whereby there is one premium for families. Luggage is now automatically included in most of TIC's products at no extra premium, and, for the very first time pre-existing illness medical cover has been introduced on some of the plans," says Novis.

Simmy Lessing, TICs Sales Manager adds, "Our research proved that many package tours run for 7 nights and 8 days, and in order to cater for this, we've increased the first period of travel cover to 8 days. Above and beyond that, weve extended our youth cover up to 2 years, and it now includes increased medical benefits."

As always, and unique to TIC, all the policies include war and terrorism cover to the full limits.

TIC, the most competitive travel insurance company in the country, is once again spearheading changes in the industry with their passionate commitment to delivering the best possible product and service to travellers.
