New line-up of travel insurance products


Travel insurance provider Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection (BHTP) has announced the launch of a new line-up of travel insurance products for the US market.

It said that the debut of ExactCare Value and ExactCare Extra, and enhancements to its existing ExactCare product, makes its coverage more comprehensive than before.

“BHTP is launching a good, better and different suite of plans in the US market,” said Dean Sivley, president of BHTP. “Our top-tier offering is ‘different’ in that it not only provides the highest coverage limits from BHTP, it also integrates our innovative fixed benefits, making it the broadest travel insurance option in the US.”

According to BHTP, ExactCare Extra ‘combines the innovative and immediate fixed-benefit payments featured in its existing AirCare product with traditional coverage, giving travellers the broadest travel and simplest protection possible’, while ExactCare Value is ‘a full-featured product offering savvy travellers what they want most from travel insurance’, and ExactCare is now more hassle-free – particularly for families, with the addition of family-friendly pricing. 

“Following the 2014 debut of AirCare – the world’s first flight-protection product to feature claims that are automatically filed and paid as flight or baggage mishaps happen – BHTP has now combined these popular fixed benefits for travel disruption and baggage with traditional, comprehensive travel insurance,” Sivley commented.
