Secaucus, New Jersey (November 7, 2019) – Northstar Travel Group announced today that AXUS, its premier itinerary building and collaboration system for travel planners and tour operators, will now enable users to quickly and easily add Arch RoamRight’s travel insurance information as they create client itineraries.
“This new integration is extending and simplifying the ability for our AXUS users to buy travel insurance with increased efficiency and greater convenience,” said Greg Wilshire, the Business Development Director for AXUS Travel App. “Arch RoamRight is a trusted name in the travel insurance space and we are excited about this complementary relationship.”
This newest enhancement to the AXUS platform has expanded functionality with RoamRight by providing travel advisors the ability to swiftly add insurance policies directly onto the AXUS itineraries while also providing the ability to link to the RoamRight website to have users receive a travel insurance quote.
In addition to building itineraries within AXUS, travel planners can now receive quotes for travel insurance as well as import policies. When an Arch RoamRight travel insurance policy is purchased, its information can be quickly imported into AXUS using just the policy number. This new enhanced functionality makes Arch RoamRight the most streamlined choice for travel insurance inside of the AXUS platform.
“When the unexpected happens, travelers and travel planners need ready access to pertinent insurance information, and the itinerary is the ideal place,” said Brice King, Senior Vice President of Travel at Arch RoamRight. “Our integration with AXUS’ carefully architected platform provides a single destination for all critical travel-related information, keeping it at the traveler’s fingertips.”
Travel planners and tour operators who already offer Arch RoamRight travel insurance plans will continue to receive commission on any plans sold through the AXUS platform. AXUS users who do not currently offer Arch RoamRight travel insurance may be eligible to enroll with Arch RoamRight and therefore receive compensation for their sales.
AXUS automates itinerary creation and delivers a content-rich, interactive mobile itinerary so travel advisors and tour operators can devote more time to selling travel and building stronger relationships with clients. Learn more at https://www.axustravelapp.com/.
