A Clever Way to Save Clients Money: Multi-Trip Travel Insurance for a Single Trip

Do you have clients taking trips up to 70 days long? People who travel each year or multiple times a year tend to have increased disposable income and make excellent prospects for your core business. Think how happy they’d be to protect that investment and save a couple hundred dollars in the process. GeoBlue Trekker Choice Multi-Trip Medical Insurance is a bargain for your always-on-the-go customers who take multiple trips each year, but it’s also a bargain for those who take a single, extended trip as well.

A past Trekker Choice plan customer called this week with a question. Because he and his wife were only taking one trip this year, they wondered: should they renew with Trekker Choice or purchase a single-trip policy for a 64-day trip beginning in June?

I discovered that Trekker Choice for a couple (ages 72 and 68) would cost $349 for the year and that any one trip could be up to 70 days in length. Comparable single-trip plans — including medical and evacuation coverage, but no trip cancellation and zero trip cost insured — were significantly more, ranging from $461 to $790 for a couple. This is because single-trip plans apply a per-day charge per person for each additional day over 30 days. As you can see, that adds up quickly. Needless to say, this couple will be renewing their GeoBlue Trekker Choice Multi-Trip plan right before their trip in June.

Plan Highlights

  • Up to $250,000 for sickness and accidents ($100,000 for ages 70 to 84)
  • $500,000 medical evacuation benefit
  • Covers pre-existing conditions for medical services and medical evacuation
  • Unlimited trips in a 12-month period (70 days maximum per trip)

IMPORTANT NOTE: Certain GeoBlue policies are filed as secondary coverage. However, GeoBlue administers and pays covered claims upfront in a primary manner.

To enroll in GeoBlue Trekker Choice you must have a primary health plan, defined as: a Group Health Benefit Plan, an individual health benefit plan or a governmental health plan (e.g. Medicare). NOTE: Medicaid and V.A. health plans do not constitute primary health insurance.
