Global News: Las Vegas Shooting Underscores the Need for Travel Insurance

The tragic mass shooting in Las Vegas is a sobering reminder of the need for travel insurance when heading outside the country.

Robin Ingle was on hand to discuss this issue with the Global News and explain the need for travel insurance when tragedy strikes while on a trip. Ultimately, there is no reason to travel uninsured when there is a multitude of affordable plans out there—each of which can cover you for millions of dollars in a crisis.

Robin Ingle Speaks on Insurance for the Homestay Industry

With the accessibility of global travel, it is common for students to pursue educational opportunities abroad. And families around the world are opening up their homes to host these students as they spend a few terms gaining some international experience. However, much like the other growing industries that offer the use of personal space to strangers—services such as Uber and Airbnb—this opens providers up to a series of risks and liabilities that have not yet been fully examined by the insurance industry. In other words, homestay providers are working in an area that the insurance market has yet to properly step up and serve. At Ingle International, we are looking to address that. Robin Ingle was on hand to discuss this relatively untapped market with Insurance Business Magazine. To learn more, read the full article here.
