There are millions of products on the market. That means there are millions of choices when looking for a single service, and having too many options can be a challenging task. Imagine you are looking for shoes, and you have no idea what kind of shoes you like. Search for it and you instantly get hundreds of results and you spend so much time sorting through them that by the time you find what you are looking for, you are no longer excited about it as when you started browsing.
It’s the same story whenever we plan on purchasing just about any product or service. We are presented with options, and it’s a wonderful thing to be given that choice. At the same time, it’s also a potential waste of time if we don’t filter through them efficiently.
I have recently come across news that countries allowing travel is increasing all over the world. With this new development, thousands of giddy travelers want to take advantage of the opportunity to see places again at the soonest time possible! Planning for trips is a bit more complicated than they were pre-Covid, and people make sure they take every precaution to ensure their safety while on trips.
One vital detail in every travel plan is getting travel insurance. Like other services out there, there are hundreds of options for travel insurance. There are a few ways customers filter their options:
- The tried and tested – these are insurance companies that have been around for a while. They have been able to keep a good reputation and have the tenure and experience to boast. These companies are mostly traditional and have done little to change their approach to the business.
- The most talked-about or trending – these insurance agencies have been boosted to fame by their online presence. These are mostly new businesses that have “star” power behind them, usually a celebrity endorsing it.
- Peer/Family recommendation – getting reliable information from people we trust and have experienced the service first hand. We value the insights of our loved ones and go for what they recommend
- The travel insurance reviews – this is the most common source of information for any company. These are comments and statements of real customers elaborating on their experience with the service. This gives potential customers a big picture of what they can expect their own experiences to be if they choose the said company.
We all want to have the best products and be given the best service, but having to choose from so many options can take its toll. We tend to rely on things that are familiar to us, or on actual customer experience shared online. There is a lot that we can get from travel insurance reviews that help us make better decisions when looking for insurance coverage. We are able to see ourselves in the reviewer’s shoes and it makes it easier for us to imagine how their experience will translate to our own.
