MacNair De-Implements Auto-Flight Insurance
Effective on February 29th, 2016, MacNair Travel Management will no longer provide automatic flight insurance with each ticket purchase. Until that date, MacNair Travel purchased this insurance for every airline ticket that we issued and provided accidental loss-of-life coverage to each ticket’s traveler that would have paid benefits in the event that loss of life was caused by an air disaster. Due to the variety of ways that our clients are able to procure life insurance of this type, (via each individual travelers’ personal insurance; via insurance that’s included in corporate and/or individually-issued credit card programs; etc.), our automatic flight insurance coverage had become a redundant feature. Additionally, our clients’ and travelers’ desire to provide customized levels of coverage could not be accommodated by our program which was available in only one coverage level. We encourage our clients who are concerned about this change to work with their in-house risk management, financial, legal, or procurement departments as applicable about suitable insurance alternatives.
