WARWICK, R.I., July 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- InsureMyTrip, the nation's leading travel insurance comparison website announced today the expansion of its online customer ratings and reviews forum with a growing database of over 20,000 ratings and candid opinions on travel insurance plans from real travelers. The milestone illustrates the power of voluntary customer feedback and further positions InsureMyTrip as the industry's trusted source for user-generated reviews.
"Since launching our review platform, it has become an increasingly important part of the buying process. We believe this steady growth indicates that more are turning to InsureMyTrip ratings and reviews when researching travel insurance policies and using the platform to share their own experiences as thoughtful consumers," says Jim Grace CEO and President of InsureMyTrip.
According to Grace, honest feedback can help guide travelers towards a travel insurance plan that works best for their individual needs, "Firsthand accounts may reveal why travelers chose a particular insurance plan over others or how a particular policy played out in real-life scenarios. Consumers may also choose to write about their experience filing a claim or how a vacation destination swayed their travel insurance purchase. This information can then help other travelers as they evaluate what kind of travel insurance is right for them."
Some of the unique features of the InsureMyTrip ratings and review forum include:
Verified Reviews: Only travelers who purchase a travel insurance plan from InsureMyTrip are invited to submit a review.
Relevance: InsureMyTrip publishes helpful reviews whether they are favorable or not.
