CSA Travel Protection is rebranding to Generali Global
Assistance under parent company Generali Group, a move the company said should
be seamless for the its travel agent partners.
"From my perspective, they'll only see benefits," said
Chris Carnicelli, CEO of Generali Global Assistance North America. "They'll
see us coming out with new product offerings. ... They'll see that we're better
able to service them globally if they have global needs. But we're making it as
seamless as possible for our partners."
CSA Travel Protection was purchased in 2008 by Europe
Assistance, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Generali Group.
Carnicelli said several Europe Assistance business lines are
being rebranded as Generali Global Assistance. The company's identity-theft
product was the first to be rebranded in June 2016.
Products under CSA's name will be gradually transitioned to the
Generali Global Assistance brand. Existing services and offerings will remain
the same and, in some cases, be enhanced. New travel insurance plans are expected
to be launched soon, Generali said.
