Voyager Insurance Services, the specialist travel broker owned by independent underwriting and broking group Somerville Underwriting Holdings plc, has acquired its long-term strategic partner CH Facilities (CHF) to boost its travel, accident and sickness and health capabilities.
Trading as Able2Travel, broker CHF, specialises in providing travel insurance to travellers with complex medical histories. CHF will be merged with Voyager.
Director Jonathan Buttery said, “Complex medical histories are a common exclusion for many travel insurers. Therefore great potential exists in making a product, that can cater for these travellers, more broadly available. A pre-existing medical condition was once seen as a barrier to overseas travel, however those with complex medical histories can now buy cover for almost any destination.”
Established in 1996 and acquired by Somerville in September 2007, Guildford based Voyager is one of the UK’s leading travel insurance specialists.
