Suretravel returns to offer sales via agents and operators

Suretravel is returning to offer sales via the travel trade after a hiatus blamed on Brexit.

Parent company tifgroup has opened up its policies to travel agents and tour operators giving them access to products supported by Protectif, the company’s bespoke medical screening tool.

The company re-entered the UK consumer market in January last year in partnership with Collinson Insurance.

They were forced to pause sales after their German insurer URV pulled out of the UK following Brexit. 

Prior to the pandemic, tifgroup claimed to be the UK’s leading travel insurance provider, underwriting £160 million of gross written premium moving into 2020.

Agents and operators can now use a dedicated booking system for the Suretravel brand to sell travel insurance to their customers and be offered up to 15% in commission in return. 

Suretravel manager Amber Moon said: “We’re excited to be back in the travel provider space, which was an important part of the business until we had to pause sales.

“Our new quote system gives agents easy access to travel insurance products, especially for customers with pre-existing medical conditions who may find it hard to find suitable, affordable insurance elsewhere.

“It is especially attractive to customers with pre-existing medical conditions, who may be concerned about finding affordable travel insurance policies in the post-pandemic era.

“We strongly believe that there is a real need for choice in the UK market for travel insurance policies and related services – particularly those aimed at helping consumers with medical conditions find suitable insurance at affordable prices, allowing them to travel.”
