Travelport, a leading travel commerce platform, recently announced that travel insurance is now available in Greece and Cyprus via its new Travelport Smartpoint plugin.
All travel agencies now have the ability to insure their travelers with Greek local provider Lloyds Insurance.
“The announcement demonstrates the importance of, and Travelport’s commitment to, an open platform that allows the brightest and best developer talent from around the world to build tools that address the unmet needs of the global travel industry,” said Travelport Greece Country Manager Leonidas Zotos.
“This is a win-win for all parties concerned. Lloyds insurance can reach more passengers, travel agents can offer a more effective end-to-end service for their customers, and both will increase revenues as a result… Insurance is an important part of every traveler’s journey and needs to be accessible via a wide range of channels,” he added.
Travelport’s travel commerce platform provides distribution, technology, payment and other solutions for the global travel and tourism industry. More specifically, the company has a leadership position in airline merchandising, hotel content and distribution, car rental, mobile commerce and B2B payment solutions.
“It’s great to be a part of Travelport’s Developer Network, which gives us access to important travel companies that might otherwise be beyond our reach,” said Dario Cham, General Manager for Inbsys International.
“By working closely with the Travelport team we have had the opportunity to develop this new plugin that we hope will benefit agencies and travelers all over the world and expand our own business,” he underlined.
