THE CONVERSATION AROUND SELLING TRAVEL insurance is persistent – for a long time, travel advisors have been aware of the revenue it generates, not to mention the value and peace of mind it offers clients. But with so many options on the market, what should you look for in a travel insurance provider to know if it’s right for you – and right for your clients? CT recently connected with TuGo, one of Canada’s top travel insurance providers, to ask exactly that. Here’s what they had to say:

  
ONE THAT HELPS YOU GROW YOUR BUSINESS.
Of course, it’s well worth it for your clients to invest in travel insurance, but let’s just admit that it’s also good for your bottom line; when it comes to upselling, this is an easy way to do it. But what’s your primary travel insurance provider doing to help grow your business? Not only does TuGo have a licensed travel insurance program with tech, sales and service tools and support, it also offers an innovative affiliate program. As such, unlicensed travel advisors can reap the benefits of travel insurance sales too, beyond the time and energy that goes into a sales pitch.

   
ONE THAT PROVIDES THE BEST VALUE TO YOUR CLIENTS.
We’ve all heard the horror stories of travellers who are caught with a medical emergency abroad, only to realize they have the wrong or insufficient coverage. Don’t assume credit card benefits have your clients adequately covered. If that traveller is your client, the blame might fall back on you – and your reputation strikes a blow. As such, keep in mind that the ideal travel insurance partner: offers the highest value, not necessarily the lowest price; provides options that cater to everyone’s needs; and has the tools and services to help you help your clients.

  
ONE THAT MAKES YOUR JOB EASIER.
Ultimately, it might feel like a lot of responsibility to ensure your clients are best protected during their next vacation. And insurance is what we all need, but don’t want to think about! So find a partner that makes your clients its top priority; ensure your provider has comprehensive emergency medical protection, as well as effective tools and support so you feel confident that your clients are taken care of anytime, anywhere in the world.


What’s more, as a member of TuGo’s Affiliate Program, you’ll have access to a fully integrated portal with real-time sales tracking. Mobile-friendly systems are available to you and your clients 24/7, making it simple for them to buy TuGo Travel Insurance, and easy for you to get paid, through the online sales platform. Sounds like a win-win!
