ABA, Trip Mate Announce Partnership to Benefit Membership

The American Bus Association (ABA) - the industry leader advancing North American motorcoach travel and tourism - and Trip Mate - the partner that leading travel professionals turn to for high-quality travel protection products and services for the traveling public – have partnered to give ABA members another tool in their toolbox to protect their customers.

“We are excited to partner with Trip Mate to help our members give their customers peace of mind,” said Peter Pantuso, president & CEO of ABA. “As people prepare for post-pandemic travel, they want to make sure they are covered in case of a trip cancellation or interruption, we want to give ABA members an affordable option to offer their customers.”

The Trip Mate partnership enables ABA members the opportunity to offer the Nationwide Explorer Series plans. These plans provide benefits to protect the cost of travel arrangements; belongings; and most importantly, your traveler. Travel insurance provides benefits covering medical expenses, trip cancellation, interruption, or delay, lost or delayed baggage, and other losses while traveling.

“We are excited to be partnering with the ABA and to provide exceptional travel protection plans for ABA members to offer to their US travelers,” said Kelly P. Sahner, chief commercial officer of Trip Mate, Inc. “Trip Mate is the leading provider of innovative, market-leading travel protection plans and we look forward to working with ABA members to provide important coverage to their travelers.”
