“Prudent employers realize they need to take the proper precautions to protect their employees, not only when they are in the office, but also when they are traveling on business,” said Dan McGinnity, vice president of Travel Guard. “We work with companies to create travel insurance programs for employers that address their specific health, safety and security concerns, based on the number of employees who travel, and the destinations to which they travel. We also offer 24/7 global travel and personal assistance services that can help mitigate a lot of the stress and frustration that comes with the territory for company road warriors. Many employers feel there is a dual value in offering comprehensive travel insurance and assistance services - they are often viewed as a valuable addition to a company’s employee benefit package, and they can also help ease the employer’s concerns about the safety and security of their employees when they’re on the road.”
