MIAMI, May 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Today, APRIL Travel Protection, part of the
international April Group with roots in Europe and Latin America, launches its
unique and customer-friendly travel insurance service and online portal in the
United States. Part insurance, part assistance, APRIL is ideal for today's
busy international traveler. Designed for the 21^st Century, APRIL compacts 25
years of global experience into one insurer as easy to use and access as your
personal phone.

Thankfully, most travelers don't ever need to use their travel insurance.
However, according to the US Travel Insurance Association (UStiA) report
surveying travelers in 2010, for the more than ten percent of travelers who
experienced the unexpected while on a trip, less than one third were actually
carrying travel insurance.[i] For the thousands of U.S. travelers who have
lost money on trips due to poor, misunderstood or lack of insurance coverage,
APRIL is as necessary as their passport.

"We believe that to successfully provide travelers with superior experience,
we need to offer comprehensive and hassle-free travel insurance and assistance
that doesn't stop with insuring the things we don't want to happen," says
Philip Namiech, CEO, APRIL Travel Protection. "At APRIL, what we want to
insure most for our customers is the best possible travel experience, whether
they're having the time of their lives or facing the unexpected."

For over 25 years APRIL has assisted global travelers and now is offering them
even more with Stress Less benefits ranging from cashless emergency medical
support, to trip interruption and beyond. U.S.-based travelers leaving the
country or traveling domestically, now have a modern, cost-effective and
consumer-friendly travel partner. Should the unexpected happen, APRIL
customers can go home to focus on scrapbooks, not reimbursement claims.

With most travel insurance, it's just that: insurance and a hope that the
customer won't need to make a claim on the policy. APRIL is different. At the

unexpected, but the travel protection also offers an extreme level of travel
assistance for all the things APRIL gets directly involved with to make a trip
run smoother. From lost bags, to delayed flights, to reservations at the best
local restaurant, APRIL is one touch away and ready to help. APRIL's
comprehensive services are just that, comprehensive.

Just like many other facets of our fast-paced world, APRIL has caught up with
its one touch travel assistance. Purchase a protection plan that meets your
travel needs with a click of the mouse and then while on the road connect with
live assistance via Skype, Live Chat, text, email or phone. Within seconds,

unexpected or assist in the most mundane of concierge tasks. Stress Less with
