With QBE now officially JTG’s Preferred Partner in travel insurance, I was fortunate during the JTG Conference in Hong Kong last weekend to spend a few minutes with Colin Ahern, QBE’s General Manager, Business Partners, Corporate Partners & Direct, [pictured right] discussing QBE’s relationship with JTG.


Colin told me that while QBE is JTG’s Preferred Partner for Travel Insurance, QBE’s goal for 2010 is to earn mutual respect from agents and work toward being the first choice for travel insurance customers across the group.

He added that the company’s focus was to also improve QBE’s delivery to JTG agents and customers, every day through delivery of QBE’s extensive suite of products.        

Colin told me that the new JTG Travel Insurance product is highly competitive, with access to QBE Assist 24 hour / 7 days a week worldwide medical and emergency assistance team and Qantas Frequent Flyer members can earn 1 Qantas Frequent Flyer point per $2 spent on eligible QBE Travel Insurance products.

With most of us at one time or another having found travel insurance companies rather lacking in delivery when one has to claim, Colin told me that with QBE, travel claims can be lodged online, anytime from anywhere and they strive to settle claims speedily and efficiently.

QBE’s relationship with JTG also provides significant benefits for agents, offering additional income through participation in the JTG PRP program, fast and efficient Point of Sale system, providing a central point for travel insurance needs and an experienced and growing sales team to support JTG agents in selling QBE products.

For clients, there is no doubt that QBE’s industry reputation and experience is very important, with in 2009 nearly 1 million travellers insuring with QBE Travel Insurance, one of the top 25 insurers and reinsurers worldwide, which also happens to be Australian owned and with operations in 47 countries, more than 13,000 employees worldwide and it gets better, in 2009, QBE was voted BRW’s most respected Insurance brand.

To hear what Colin had to tell me click on the video box below and QBE also have an awesome video, which I guarantee will ensure that you will never again let any client leave your office without travel insurance.

So, if you were a delegate held at the JTG Conference and want to see and hear QBE’s amazing travel insurance video again or you simply could not be there and would like to see it, which I suggest you do right now, then all you have to do is click on the video box below.
