RoverPass is an emerging travel marketplace that gives travellers 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 GGA, said: “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 per cent of US travellers 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 travellers 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.”
Added trip cancellation benefits
Travellers booking through RoverPass will be given the option to help protect their RV or camping trip with GGA’s travel insurance offering during the booking process. This offering will give travellers 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 and trip cancellation: coverage if the upcoming trip is cancelled or interrupted due to sickness or injury, including coverage for interruptions or cancellation as a result of the policyholder or a travelling 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 and legal assistance, travelling companion assistance, assistance locating lost or stolen items, assistance in replacing prescriptions while travelling and pet assistance.
- Concierge services: customers will also be able to use GGA’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.
Bringing RV and camping to the next level
Ravi Parikh, CEO of RoverPass, said: “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. Travellers 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.”
At the beginning of the year, insurer AXA has entered into an agreement with Generali to sell its insurance operations in Greece.
