Citybond Suretravel renews ABTASure Travel Insurance Scheme.

United Kingdom, London, 22 February 2017 – Citybond Holdings Ltd.

Beckenham based Citybond Suretravel has been reappointed to manage the ABTASure travel insurance scheme on behalf of ABTA, the UK’s largest travel association, for 2017.

The scheme, launched over 10 years ago, is exclusively available to all ABTA members and has been carefully devised and developed by Citybond with input from ABTA to ensure agents have the best possible choice of travel insurance solutions for their customers.

The scheme offers full administration, operational, compliance and sales administration support via a dedicated online issuing system. Customers are also able to buy online at www.abtasure.co.uk or over the phone using the dedicated referral code provided by the agent.

It includes a quick and easy medical screening system with free cover for over 300 conditions, three levels of cover to choose from and SAFI included for free. There is no upper age limit on single trip cover.

Julian Triggs, Citybond’s Sales Manager, said: “We’re delighted to be continuing our partnership with ABTA in providing their members with a first class travel insurance offering. We’ve been working together now for over a decade and it’s a privilege to partner with one of the travel industry’s leading brands.”

Heather Pennock, ABTA’s Partnerships Manager, said: “The longevity of our partnership with Citybond Suretravel is testament to the fact that the ABTASure scheme continues to offer our Members the very best choice in travel insurance provision that suits both their needs and those of their customers.”
