MIAMI, Fla., June 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. division of 26-year-old global insurance giant APRIL Travel Protection (www.AprilTravelProtection.com) stands out in the marketplace with "Stress Less Benefits" that pay to resolve consumers' problems instantly for most covered benefits while the vacationer is still traveling. APRIL is the only company in the U.S. offering this groundbreaking feature, which is included in all of its insurance plans and policies purchased through affiliated agents and suppliers.
"Stress Less is the cornerstone of our philosophy, our signature service which allows us to step into the middle of a traveler's issue and provide immediate solutions and on-the-spot payments," said Jason Schreier, CEO of APRIL-USA.
Most insurance companies pay for benefits after an often lengthy claims procedure requiring the insured to pay upfront for problems that arise while traveling. That process is less than fun as no one wants to deal with claims while traveling or the uncertainty of reimbursements.
"APRIL provides instant judication with no worries that the insurance company will find an out-clause later on," Schreier adds.
Stress Less Benefits address a range of potential inconveniences from travel delays and missed connections to trip interruption, emergency medical coverage and evacuation.
APRIL's pro-active support keeps up with travelers' evolving needs with a multi-lingual team and 24/7 toll-free access from most destinations as well as other convenient support channels from Skype to texting, email and live chat. APRIL is the first company to pioneer these forward-thinking support mechanisms since the soft launch of its U.S. division in April 2013.
"The convenience of our Stress Less Benefits and pro-active customer service is a major boon for our agent and supplier partners who will not have to worry about negative reviews from frustrated consumers," Schreier explained.
APRIL offers branded and white-label travel protection plans for travel agencies, tour operators, airlines, hotels cruise lines and car rental companies.
APRIL Travel Protection is owned by APRIL, an international group with 45 operational companies in more than 40 different countries and annual sales exceeding $1.1 billion. APRIL is supported by American Modern Insurance Group as its preferred underwriter. American Modern is an AM Best A+ rated carrier, and part of Munch Re (US operations).
