SAN DIEGO – Generali Global Assistance (GGA) announced that it will be offering travel insurance for purchase through its partner RoverPass, which is an emerging travel marketplace that gives travelers the ability to search and book an RV site or campground that expands vacation opportunities for people all across the country.
Chris Carnicelli, CEO of Generali Global Assistance, commented on the news, “As people look for ways to escape the stay-at-home routine, many have turned to camping and road trips as their socially distanced activities of choice. Our 2020 summer travel survey results showed that 72% of US travelers said they would be taking their next trip via car, setting the stage for the revival of the golden age of road trips, with RVs becoming popular among younger demographics. As travelers become increasingly reliant on digital platforms to plan and book their vacations, we’re proud to partner with RoverPass to provide their customers with peace of mind as they look to book their next outdoor expedition.”
Travelers booking through RoverPass will be given the option to help protect their RV or camping trip with Generali Global Assistance’s travel insurance offering during the booking process. This offering will give travelers added Trip Cancellation benefits and is designed to provide coverage in the event COVID-19 related illness impacts their trip. Additional coverages and services included in the offering available to RoverPass customers include:
