Global travelers will now use the group’s new website (WorldTrips.com) to buy travel medical insurance products in addition to obtaining destination-specific travel safety and security information.

“We are excited to launch this new expanded online experience for global travelers, as they start to explore the world again,” said WorldTrips CEO Mark Carney. “For over 22 years, we've been on a mission to make unexpected travel emergencies less stressful for international travelers. We recognize that today’s global traveler needs much more than just travel protection—they need travel information and assistance as well. I’m proud we can now offer travel insurance, information, and assistance that empower our policyholders to travel as safely as possible.”

WorldTrips will empower global travelers to start the trip-planning process with access to a variety of new safety and security resources.
