Travel Insurance provider Just Travel Cover has reported a ‘dramatic spike’ in partnership enquiries from travel agents since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The broker, which compares travel insurance – including policies covering coronavirus – has seen a 20% rise in the number of agents directing clients to the site for holiday insurance.

Marketing manager Dale Robinson said: “We’ve had agents of all sizes contact us recently looking for a solution to the ever-changing requirements of their clients when it comes to travel insurance.

“The insurance landscape is changing rapidly amid the pandemic and agents are recognising the benefit of introducing clients to a trusted partner who can explain the varying types of cover, leaving them to concentrate on the booking and holiday experience.”

Just Travel Cover offers agents a co-branded web and speaks to agents’ customers on the phone.

Robinson added: “There’s no doubt travel insurance has become more complicated since March, and we are working with insurers every day to ensure we can provide the very best cover for every type of holiday and every type of traveller, including protection against Covid-19.

“Many agents simply don’t have the time to keep up with these changes but do want to supply their clients with the right cover, so the enhanced Covid-19 cover and dual-branded websites have really helped agents provide a fantastic service to their clients without having to get involved in the insurance side”.
