About $15 billion was stolen from 13.1 million consumers in 2015, according to the 2016 Identity Fraud Study by Javelin Strategy & Research.
Everyone should be on guard about “Identity Theft,” but it’s something that travelers are especially wary of, as they’re usually carrying documents, IDs and credit cards in unfamiliar places. Your guests may appreciate it if you offer them a service designed to help them if their identity is compromised during their vacation.
Identity Theft Resolution Service* is included when your guests purchase vacation rental insurance from CSA Travel Protection. Many vacationers are interested in travel insurance so they can recoup vacation rental and trip costs if they cancel for a covered reason, but mentioning the additional ID Theft Resolution Service could encourage more guests to insure their trip.
The assistance available with CSA’s ID Theft Resolution Service include:
- Contacting creditors to notify them about the fraud and possibly request to cancel affected cards and issue new ones.
- Reporting the fraudulent activity to local authorities and forward a report to creditors.
- Providing the traveler with a helpful ID Theft Resolution Kit.
- Assistance in notifying banks or other agencies if identification such as an ATM card, passport, or driver’s license is stolen.
- Education about how ID theft happens and protective measures for the future.
- And more.
Your guests will not only have access to this service while on vacation, but also after their trip, since often times travelers don’t notice the theft until they arrive home. ID Theft Resolution Service is automatically included for a full 180 days starting on the traveler’s scheduled departure date.
