by Erin Weiland | Aug 06, 2012

USAA has awarded Travel Insured International (TII) the “Above and Beyond” award for enabling USAA to offer unique TII travel insurance products to its members, including benefits designed specifically for members of the military.

In giving this award, USAA, a leading financial services provider for members of the military and their families, recognizes Travel Insured International for meeting and exceeding member needs in the areas of customer satisfaction and product innovation. Over the past three years, TII has consistently exceeded USAA’s expectation of 95 percent satisfaction in customer surveys.  TII has also designed an industry-first benefit for USAA members that provides reimbursement of covered travel costs if military leave is revoked. Through TII, USAA can offer its members a suite of travel insurance products that meet the unique needs of the military community while delivering the most comprehensive coverage and competitive pricing.  

Alice Diamant, president of USAA’s Alliance Services Company, said, “It has been a pleasure partnering with TII for the past 18 years.  This alliance continuously improves to meet the unique needs of the USAA membership.  Meeting those needs is achieved in large part thanks to the leadership, collaboration and focus that TII brings to the table.”

Jonathan Gehris, president and chief operating officer of Travel Insured International, was honored by the award. “The Above and Beyond award is a testament to our commitment and long-standing partnership with USAA.  Our dedicated associates work hard to meet service excellence standards USAA members have come to expect and deserve.  We will continue to raise our service standards and deliver the very best products and services.”
