Travelers Debuts “Guide to Better Coverage”09:28 EST Thursday, December 01, 2011 HARTFORD, Conn. (Business Wire) -- Travelers today announced the availability of the “Guide to Better Coverage,” a new online educational tool available at Travelers.com/Guide that is designed to help people better understand and evaluate insurance needs as their life changes. The “Guide to Better Coverage” provides users with a personalized list of coverages to consider, as well as valuable information about insurance at particular life stages - whether they are just starting out, newly married, expectant parents, first-time home buyers, empty nesters or retirees. “A new home, buying a car, tying the knot, having a baby – life keeps changing, and so do the things we need to protect,” said Greg Toczydlowski, President of Travelers Personal Insurance. “The ‘Guide to Better Coverage' helps people better assess their insurance needs, ask the right questions and understand why different life changes should trigger an insurance review.” For example, when two people get married, they combine their lives and often their assets. As newly married couples evaluate insurance options, the “Guide to Better Coverage” can assist by recommending potential discounts available for consolidating all policies with one company. With this tool, Travelers not only arms consumers with information they need to help make a more informed insurance decision, but also helps them initiate these discussions with Travelers or an independent insurance agent.
