In a recent article by the Los Angeles Times, business writer Hugo Martin explores the affect Ebola fears have had on the travel insurance industry. In his latest post, he features an interview with Jim Grace, CEO of InsureMyTrip. Here’s an excerpt:
“We’ve had a lot of calls from travelers concerned about travel because of Ebola,” said Jim Grace, president and chief executive of InsureMyTrip, one of the world’s largest online travel insurance companies.
He said calls for such insurance are coming from travelers who are heading to Africa, Europe and other parts of the globe.
“Whenever there is this kind of uncertainty, people want to be in the driver’s seat,” Grace said.
