Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection (BHTP) has teamed up with TripInsuranceZone to bring BHTP’s suite of travel insurance products to the online travel insurance comparison website TripInsuranceZone.com.

Products to be offered through the website include BHTP’s ExactCare™, which provides travelers with comprehensive travel and medical benefits that feature Primary Emergency Medical coverage (including pre-existing conditions when purchased within 15-days of the initial trip deposit).

ExactCare also offers Trip Cancellation and Interruption, Medical Evacuation and Repatriation, AD&D, and Loss and Delay benefits.

“We are thrilled the customers of TripInsuranceZone.com can now access BHTP products and standout service,” said Dean Sivley, President of Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection.

Using TripInsuranceZone’s unique comparison engine, travelers can research, quote, compare and purchase travel insurance from most major travel insurance providers in the United States.

“BHTP is bringing a unique set of travel insurance options to our customers. AirCare takes away inconveniences customers could experience when unexpected events occur during their flights, and ExactCare provides traditional comprehensive coverage with a quick and easy claims and payment process. We are very excited to have both set of products available on the TripInsuranceZone.com,” said Mariya Frayman, President of TripInsuranceZone.

Along with coverage, BHTP provides travelers with access to advanced mobile and claims technology that allows BHTP to process and pay a traveler’s claim within seconds once it has been reviewed and approved. Travelers simply upload all necessary documentation to start a claim, and then set-up their preferred method of electronic payment in their profile. This process can be done online at BHTP.com or by downloading their mobile application available for Android and iOS devices.

“Waiting weeks, or even days, for travelers to receive payments for travel emergencies and mishaps is a thing of the past. We’ve developed our claims processing to pay travelers quickly, so they can access those funds while they are still on their trip,” Dean said.
