San Diego - September 19, 2013


CSA Travel Protection (CSA), dedicated for the past 20 years to providing affordable travel insurance and emergency assistance services, announced today that its personalized reporting earned a Silver 2013 Magellan Award by Travel Weekly magazine.  With entries from across the U.S. and around the world, the Magellan Award winners represent the best in the travel industry and salute the outstanding travel professionals behind it all.

CSA personalized reporting was designed to enable travel insurance agents to control their policy business hands-on through a self-service portal where they can view and modify all their policies in one place as well as check commission reports on the fly. Agents can double check the referral payments provided by CSA, determine if a client purchased a policy without the need to go back to CSA or the client and they can also check in on the status of a claim. Agents report this saves on average two days a month of productivity time.
