Including Early Return Flights For Vacationers Whose Homes Are Damaged By Northeast Blizzard

MIAMI, FL (Jan. 27, 2014) – With cancellations and delays already mounting due to blizzard conditions throughout the Northeastern United States, the Miami headquarters of APRIL Travel Protection (www.AprilTravelProtection.com) is fully staffed in order to assist stranded and delayed travelers with help planning alternate travel and on-the-spot payments on its signature Stress Less Benefits.

The new U.S. division of 26-year-old APRIL Travel Group is also committed to helping policyholders whose plans may be interrupted as a result of damage incurred at their home residence and is urging affected homeowners to contact APRIL's multi-lingual team via 24/7 toll-free access from most destinations or other convenient support channels from Skype to texting, email and live chat.

"We recognize that canceled flights are just one of the ways policyholders may be impacted by severe weather conditions and will do our best to coordinate early return flights for those whose residence is rendered uninhabitable as a result of the 2015 Northeast blizzard," said Jason Schreier, CEO of APRIL-USA.

Additionally, APRIL's ‘Stress Less Benefits’ provide instant adjudication – a ground-breaking innovation which pays to resolve covered issues on-the-spot while the vacationer is still traveling. Every policy sold by APRIL and its supplier partners offers this feature for a wide range of inconveniences that can’t be predicted in advance, including severe weather and natural disasters, injury, sickness, death, job loss or relocations, supplier default, terrorism, military duty, strikes and more.

APRIL is the only insurance company to offer this progressive benefit to U.S. policyholders.

"This makes it possible for policyholders to enjoy their vacation without having to worry about out-of-pocket expenses in an emergency," said Schreier.
