OMAHA, Neb., Aug. 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- After 21 years in business, Travelex Insurance Services reveals a new logo and brand identity to better reflect its new ownership and evolution into a global travel protection specialist.

As of April 2017, as part of the Cover-More Group, Travelex Insurance Services was successfully acquired by Zurich Insurance Group, positioning Zurich as one of the three largest travel insurance providers in the world.  As Travelex transitions to an inspiring travel protection brand, it is retaining its name and updating the brand to reflect its global protection specialist heritage.

Christine Buggy, Vice President of Marketing, explained: “Travelex Insurance Services’ modernized logo visually represents the windows of an aircraft, cruise ship or travel vehicle. The italic typeface and vibrant colors create a sense of movement and safety, symbolizing that Travelex is on the journey with our customers. The new tag line – Dream. Explore. Travel On. – encourages people to fulfill their travel dreams while providing assurance they can travel with confidence and peace of mind.”    

Plans are underway to take advantage of the underwriting capabilities and global commerce platforms of Travelex’s new owners, while expanding travel insurance and assistance services to customers and partners worldwide.

“Travelex’s new ownership and branding reaffirm that we are here to stay, with the quality protection plans and personal service our customers and partners trust and rely on,” Travelex Insurance Services’ President Michael J. Ambrose said. “We are committed to improve and innovate as an industry leader in travel protection and assistance services.”
