Generali Global Assistance to Offer Travel Insurance for Campers Through RoverPass24 February 2021
GGA & RoverPass partner to serve the growing number of travelers looking to go camping and take RV trips
Generali Global Assistance (GGA) today announced that it will be offering travel insurance for purchase through its partner RoverPass, which is an emerging travel marketplace that gives travelers the ability to search and book an RV site or campground that expands vacation opportunities for people all across the country.
Chris Carnicelli, CEO of Generali Global Assistance, commented on the news, “As people look for ways to escape the stay-at-home routine, many have turned to camping and road trips as their socially distanced activities of choice. Our 2020 summer travel survey results showed that 72% of US travelers said they would be taking their next trip via car, setting the stage for the revival of the golden age of road trips, with RVs becoming popular among younger demographics. As travelers become increasingly reliant on digital platforms to plan and book their vacations, we’re proud to partner with RoverPass to provide their customers with peace of mind as they look to book their next outdoor expedition.”
Travelers booking through RoverPass will be given the option to help protect their RV or camping trip with Generali Global Assistance’s travel insurance offering during the booking process. This offering will give travelers added Trip Cancellation benefits and is designed to provide coverage in the event COVID-19 related illness impacts their trip. Additional coverages and services included in the offering available to RoverPass customers include:
- Trip Interruption & Trip Cancellation: coverage if your upcoming trip is cancelled or interrupted due to sickness or injury including coverage for interruptions or cancellation as a result of you or a traveling companion becoming ill with COVID-19.
- Global Medical Network: customers are given access to GGA’s extensive global network of more than 750,000 in-network medical providers.
- 24/7 Travel Assistance: policyholders will also have 24/7 access to GGA’s travel support services including medical & legal assistance, traveling companion assistance, assistance locating lost or stolen items, assistance in replacing prescriptions while traveling, and pet assistance.
- Concierge Services: customers will also be able to use Generali Global Assistance’s concierge services to help get restaurant, airline, or rental car reservations in addition to golf tee times or tickets for events at their destination.
“We are thrilled to provide our customers with the ability to help protect their trip during these unpredictable times. We chose Generali Global Assistance as our partner since they are a global leader in travel insurance and are dedicated to working with us to bring RV and camping travel experiences to the next level. Travelers can now book with confidence, and the RV parks and campground managers that make up our network can have peace of mind in 2021 and beyond!” added Ravi Parikh, CEO of RoverPass.
