Abta launches Abta Travel Sure insurance to sell via members

Lucy Huxley

Abta has partnered with Axa to launch a travel insurance product, Abta Travel Sure, which it will sell direct and via members. The new product includes Covid-19 cover as

standard for medical claims abroad and for cancellation prior to travel if the holder falls ill with coronavirus and is unable to travel, or has to self-isolate. Abta’s head of insurance Ian Hall said three levels

of cover were offered for the 5-star Defaqto-rated single trip and annual multi-trip policies. Abta members will have the opportunity to promote Abta Travel Sure, which may require them to become an Introducer Appointed Representative (IAR) or Appointed Representative (AR). Hall said: “A lot of agents moved away from selling

travel insurance when new regulations took hold, but this is a high quality product for them to sell or promote.”

Wizz Air expands fleet at Luton and adds five new routes this summer

Wizz Air is to start five new routes to Greece and Spain out of Luton this summer. The budget carrier has added an additional aircraft to its Luton fleet, and now has 11 at the airport. New routes to Alicante, Ibiza, Menorca and Valencia in Spain, and Santorini in Greece begin on August 7 and 8, taking the total number of Wizz routes from Luton to 60. One-way fares start from £21.99. 23 JULY 2020 17 He said most members would probably take the

“lighter touch” IAR option, whereby they promote the policy but direct their customers to Abta to buy it, earning themselves a commission. Larger members “with clever systems, who want to integrate this into their customer journey, with a bit of training”, might opt for full AR status and higher earning potential, he added. Abta chief executive Mark Tanzer said launching a

travel insurance product was part of the association’s strategic plan, established three years ago, alongside creating an events business to “diversify its revenues”. He said the launch was timely “as people start to travel

again or at least are booking”, following the pandemic. ● Jet2holidays has added 5-star Defaqto-rated Covid-19 insurance covering overseas treatment, cancellation up to 28 days out, and not being able to board due to airport tests. It has been added to all policies dating back to April 9.
