Silicon Valley-based insurtech company VisitorsCoverage Inc., in partnership with global insurance benefits and assistance provider International Medical Group (IMG), has launched a new travel medical insurance policy for tourists heading to Europe. EuropeTravel – Plus has been specifically designed for non-US citizens heading to Europe; it both meets and exceeds the EU’s insurance requirements for a Schengen visa, according to the companies, offering coverage for up to 90 days. Visa letters can be sent directly to customers post-purchase via email, to expedite the process on behalf of the consumer.
The policy has been designed in response to the steady increase in European tourism over the past decade, according to Rajeev Shrivastava, CEO of VisitorsCoverage. “We are constantly working toward our mission to simplify international travel medical insurance products and customer experience,” he said. “The creation of the EuropeTravel – Plus plan is another step toward that goal. There was a demand for a Europe-specific travel plan that not only meets visa requirements for European countries, but also provides necessary coverage in one single insurance plan. The EuropeTravel – Plus plan does exactly that.”
