I (Steve) used to be a Certified Financial Planner. In the year 2000, my retiring clients started asking me to find them travel insurance. I started praying for ideas, and, by the grace of God, I realized there was a business opportunity giving detailed travel insurance advice. And I had my Grandparents example of how to run a business.

Forefinger bullet point You get the right advice without being pressured to buy anything (no Sales Pitches). And, you don’t pay anything extra to use (you get the same price from us as if you went to the companies directly). If you want self-service and the cheapest price, don’t use us.

Trudy V., Wyckoff, NJ says, “Steve, Deanna did a great job answering my questions. And, she did not “encourage me” to get one of the more expensive plans – I appreciate that!”

Here’s more from Steve Dasseos:

As I (Steve) looked into travel insurance, I made four startling discoveries:

  1. Most travel insurance is sold by non-insurance licensed travel agents
  2. The few online travel insurance sites offered mediocre advice
  3. Many sites offered too many plans (100+ choices)
  4. Very few websites had real people with real names available to speak with. If you could find an email address, it was usually info@… or service@… and good luck finding a phone number.

I started praying for ideas, launching in February 2001. I was too cheap to hire a programmer so I taught myself programming, writing and basic website design. now has 6 employees.

International Experience
I was raised with a love of traveling. I also have relatives in Greece, Sweden and Great Britain. And I lived in Mexico & Guatemala from July 1985 to July 1986. I learned Spanish in Guatemala and did volunteer work with many missionaries. We have an International Family, too. My wife and I adopted our son from Russia and our daughter from Guatemala in the last few years. is the Internet’s first Trip Cancellation Travel Insurance comparison website with pre-selected, trustworthy and reputable travel insurance providers. No other travel insurance comparison website pre-screens its Travel Insurance providers and limits which ones it offers based on that pre-screening.

This question from a client sums it up best:

Pre-screening certainly makes the number of choices more manageable, but I’d feel more comfortable knowing the specific reasons for your company selections. I tried two other sites, where I was first drawn to the policy I eventually purchased, although I had to wade through more choices. Why should I, in general, rely on you to eliminate the companies I would eliminate?

That’s a great question. Here’s my answer:

  • Many policies are very similar. In my opinion it’s better to have a smaller selection of different plans than a huge choice of substantially similar ones. There’s less confusion all around.
  • Not all companies’ claim departments can be relied on to take care of their customers. My due diligence has found many surprises that unsuspecting consumers are vulnerable to.
  • Since I am the one person that is ultimately responsible for making sure each of our customers gets the right plan to fit their trip, I have to be 100% confident in the companies I’m willing to associate my name and reputation with.
