Manulife Financial Corp. is now distributing travel insurance through TravelInsurance, a popular travel insurance comparison website. TravelInsurance helps simplify travel insurance by providing consumers with an easy way to compare and buy policies on-line from top-rated providers.

"At John Hancock, we're committed to help make our customers' decisions easier and their lives better and, when it comes to travel insurance, it's important to be prepared for the unexpected mishaps that can arise. That's why we're thrilled to offer our travel insurance products through [TravelInsurance website]," said Rob Iafrate, assistant vice-president of travel insurance. "Reaching customers through new aggregator partnerships that simplify the purchase experience is one way we plan to achieve growth in our travel insurance business and offer top-tier trip protection products and services."

John Hancock's coverage will be available on TravelInsurance in three tiers: bronze, silver and gold, to match customers' needs and budgets. The policies offer trip cancellation, trip interruption, medical, accident and baggage protection with extensive, worldwide 24-hour multilingual emergency services. The policies also come with a 14-day free look period after purchase.

"Travel insurance has become a must-have for a wide range of travel plans, from family visits over the holidays to dream European vacations," said Stan Sandberg, co-founder of TravelInsurance. "We are excited to add John Hancock's products to [TravelInsurance website], giving our customers access to a leading brand with a set of products that can meet our customers' needs."

Plans and products distributed by John Hancock Insurance Agency Inc. are underwritten by Starr Indemnity & Liability Company.
