Who is Pablow Inc.?
Pablow’s founders have been involved in the online travel industry for nearly two decades.
They’ve created innovative and award winning travel and tourism websites in the US, UK, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Five years ago the team entered the travel insurance industry by offering problem-solving car rental insurance in partnership with Allianz Global Assistance. The same innovative and problem solving approach we used in the car rental industry is being applied to the vacation rental market, ensuring our product offerings are customer driven and solving genuine problems of travelers and property mangers.
Why are we selling vacation rental insurance?
Most major travel insurance companies will not let you purchase vacation rental insurance after you have fully paid for your vacation. They see it as too much of a risk, which makes sense given how many people cancel vacations before departure. Unfortunately, this leaves many travelers feeling uneasy and unprotected from losing their vacation rental deposits. It also can leave vacation rental managers in an uncomfortable position, especially if a reservation cancellation is made and the rental manager is not at liberty to refund any of the money that was paid, which can amount to many thousands of dollars. This can have a material effect the long term relationship between the guest and the manager, not least lead to poor reviews.
That's why Pablow, Inc. partnered with IMG and iTravelInsured to create an insurance policy that could be purchased after the final rental deposit and up to 24 hours prior to check in. This gives guest’s flexibility to purchase insurance when they are ready and the ability to purchase a policy that covers the nuances of their individual vacation rental reservation. In effect both the renter and the manager are protected as a result.
What makes this policy different?
- It can be purchased after the final deposit payment and up to 24 hours before check in
- Everyone staying at the rental under the reservation would be insured
- Guests can increase their policy’s protection by adding flights, rental cars, and other travel expenses after the vacation rental reservation has been made
How do we help vacation rental managers and owners?
The vast majority of vacation rental managers and owners are not in a position to offer their guests travel insurance. Primarily this is because the insurance industry is heavily regulated and requires licensing in all 50 states. Pablow helps vacation rental owners and mangers looking to distribute insurance by being licensed in all 50 states, having distribution contracts with major insurers and continually developing industry-leading technology. We make these capabilities available to property managers, which enables them to better serve their guests and generates additional revenue for their vacation rental company from insurance sales.
