Warwick, R.I.--InsureMyTrip.com, a worldwide on-line travel insurance aggregator, has expanded operations into Canada, providing a new resource for the Canadian travel consumer. InsureMyTrip.ca allows consumers to analyze, rate, compare and purchase travel insurance from Canada's top travel insurers, all on one site.

"This is a natural progression for us," stated Jim Grace, President and CEO of InsureMyTrip. "In many ways, the Canadian travel insurance industry is more mature than the U.S. However, there is still a fundamental need in the marketplace to compile the multitude of available insurance plans and facilitate the comparison process; this is the service we provide, this is where we excel."

Grace believes that the company creates a competitive advantage by enabling prospects to compare insurance providers and plans in a single search.

"This is our glue and what truly sets us apart from our competition" explained Grace.

InsureMyTrip.ca launched with two insurers, British Columbia-based Travel Underwriters, and Toronto-based Travel Guard Canada, and plans to expand its product offerings and add more companies in the future.

"As we have done in the U.S., we will focus on aligning with the leading travel insurers to provide the best choices possible for the traveling consumer," explained Grace.

The company also plans to add bilingual staff and offer its site in French to enhance and expand service into Quebec soon.

InsureMyTrip.ca is an operating entity of IMT Services Corporation, an Audubon, Pa., privately held company launched in 2000. The principals of IMT have been selling travel insurance on-line since 1995.
