FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

New York Press Office: (212) 346-5500; media@iii.org

The Insurance Information Institute and Latin Agents and Brokers Association will answer consumer questions on travel insurance, car rental insurance, the insurance implications of renting a private home for a vacation stay, and other summer related topics.

 

NEW YORK, July 20, 2016 —Consumers in the summer months often have questions about their insurance policies, whether the issue is how to protect their vacation plans with travel insurance, their coverage after a home burglary or for the damages caused by a natural disaster like a tropical storm or a hurricane.

 

To help Spanish-speaking consumers in the NY tristate area assess these summer risks, and learn about the insurance policies that cover them, WXTV Univision 41, the Insurance Information Institute and Brokers Association will co-host a live insurance helpline on Wednesday, July 20, from 5 to 7 p.m. The calls will be answered by bilingual volunteers from the Insurance Information Institute (I.I.I.) and the Latin Agents and Brokers Association (L.A.B.A.) and their members, who are experts in providing reliable information and savvy money-saving tips on topics related to auto, home and business insurance.

 

The insurance helpline was created to help Hispanic consumers in the New York Tristate area with questions, such as:

 

-What to consider when buying travel insurance (and what it is and is not)

-What you need to know about rental car insurance

-How to cover yourself if you are renting, or renting out, a home as part of a vacation

-How to insure your pool or spa

-What insurance policies cover you if you’re the victim of a home break-in or identity theft, or lose your luggage while on vacation.

 

The WXTV Univision 41 News team regularly provides viewers with the latest consumer reports and investigations through its 41 a Tu Lado segments.

 

The event will be live-tweeted and viewers can submit questions via Twitter, @iii_enespanol. Also, consumers can follow the I.I.I. on @iiiorg@noticias41NY, @JeanneSalvatore, and use the hashtags “Asegurate,”, and #AseguraTuVerano
