We are delighted to announce that Columbus has beaten Healix Insurance Services and AON to be named Intermediary of the Year at an awards ceremony in Barcelona hosted by the International Travel Insurance Journal (ITIJ).
The annual ITIJ Awards recognise those providers in the travel insurance industry that have gone above and beyond what is required of them. The ITIJ Awards are voted for by readers, who work in the global travel insurance arena.
Columbus picked up the award after being congratulated on its ambitious growth and expansion into global markets. The company’s innovation in products and technology and attention to customer service was also noted by the judges.
Greg Lawson, Head of Retail at Columbus Direct, said: “This award acknowledges all the hard work everyone at Columbus Direct has put in to provide flexible and cost effective solutions to our customers. It’s fantastic to be recognised for both our product offering as well as its value.
“We pride ourselves on being the first company to sell travel insurance direct to the consumer and first to sell online in the UK. It is this history that has helped us build a culture of innovation and a continued ambition for growth.”
