BIBA renews holiday travel scheme

Company brief

The British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) has announced the renewal of its holiday travel scheme with Lloyd’s Syndicate DTW1991. As well as extending the partnership between BIBA and Syndicate DTW1991, the product – Holiday Travel+ – has been enhanced; it will now include coverage for pre-existing mental health conditions (subject to thorough medical screening), along with missed departure for any leg of a journey.

Brokers utilise the syndicate’s online platform – which can be embedded into individual websites if necessary – to product quotes, bind policies, process endorsements and manage renewals.

“The team at DTW1991 has worked closely with us to respond to the changing demands of holiday travel insurance customers and we welcome the new ‘all risks’ cancelation cover,” said Steve White, Chief Executive of BIBA. “Our members find this flagship scheme easy to sell and their customers will find the cover to be extensive. They have the benefit of direct access to specialist underwriters, so we’re delighted to have appointed DTW1991 as the BIBA holiday travel scheme provider for a further three years and we look forward to working with them on this key member scheme.”

Daniel Wright, Active Underwriter at Syndicate DTW1991, commented: “BIBA’s endorsement is important to our business and key in developing our travel expertise. The renewal has provided us with the opportunity to review our offering in detail and discuss feedback from our BIBA partners. Through this process we have enhanced our underwriting and claims response for the benefit of the customer.”
