AIG Travel Named Best Travel Insurance Company by Forbes Advisor


HOUSTON (Sept. 1, 2020) – AIG Travel was awarded top honors by Forbes Advisor in their Best Travel Insurance Companies list for consumers. Out of 15 travel insurance companies ranked by the financial news outlet, AIG Travel came in first, based on a rigorous, data-driven methodology.

AIG Travel garnered the best score in the Forbes ranking based on an in-depth review of 15 coverage benefits for multiple travel insurance plans, including baggage delays or mishaps, trip delays or cancellation, travel health or medical expenses, pre-existing medical conditions and flexibility to cancel for any reason.

“So many unexpected problems can happen on a trip,” said Amy Danise, Forbes Advisor’s Chief Insurance Analyst. “You may not be able to prevent the problems but having the best travel insurance policy can save you money and headaches. In some cases, it could save your health if you encounter a medical problem while traveling.”

Travel Guard, the name for AIG Travel’s portfolio of travel insurance products, provides different coverage options for all the aforementioned scenarios, as well as others, and the ability to customize a plan to a traveler’s specific needs with a selection of optional bundles, such as the Name Your Family®, Adventure Sports or Security Bundles.

 “We are honored by this recognition from Forbes Advisor,” said Jeff Rutledge, CEO, AIG Travel. “We understand that consumers need a more personalized travel experience, which is why we have worked tirelessly to provide a better-targeted spectrum of products – and ultimately a better experience for travelers.”
