Atlas Ocean Voyages has expanded its all-inclusive pricing to include Atlas Assurance, which provides medical, travel and legal services, in addition to emergency medical evacuation insurance.
“We are offering greater peace of mind to our clients with the new Atlas Assurance program,” said Alberto Aliberti, President of Atlas Ocean Voyages. “Although emergencies rarely happen, it’s heartwarming to know that our clients are protected by Atlas Assurance if something unexpected happens and they need help. “
The introduction of Atlas Insurance is part of Atlas’ constant innovation goal. “Innovation is important to us,” Aliberti said at a press conference at Seatrade Cruise Global in Miami this week. “We are looking to innovate piece by piece, little item by little item. “
On the medical level, Atlas Assurance includes emergency evacuation and return home transport; emergency prescription and replacement of glasses; guarantee of payment of medical expenses; sending a doctor or specialist; world benchmark of hospitals and doctors; return of dependent children; and more.
Atlas Insurance also includes a variety of travel services, including assistance with lost documents; 24 hour emergency travel arrangements; embassy and consular assistance; transport of a traveling companion; and more. Customers even get legal and bonding support around the world.
Atlas Assurance is included for all customers as part of the line’s “All Inclusive All The Way” philosophy. Cruise fares also include free round-trip air travel; unlimited premium wines and spirits, international beers and coffees; prepaid tips; polar parkas; L’Occitane bath products; and more. Fares are fully commissionable to travel counselors, as are any pre-cruise purchases such as pre-cruise tours or upgraded bottles of champagne.
