WellAbroad Provides Comprehensive, Real-Time Safety and Security Information for International Travelers

New Web Site Created as One-Stop Resource to Inform and Educate Consumers on Potential Travel Risks

INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwire - February 24, 2009) - Seven Corners, one of the industry's most experienced travel health insurance providers, announces the creation of a new Web site designed specifically to help international travelers make informed decisions and reduce risks to their health and safety while traveling abroad.

WellAbroad.com is a real-time, information-rich Web site that provides travelers and travel planners with quick and easy access to country-specific data including travel precautions, travel health warnings and travel alerts regarding local conditions that may affect travelers' safety and security.

"Health risks, natural disasters, terrorism threats or civil unrest are all conditions that could affect the quality of a trip abroad or pose imminent risk to travelers," says Justin Tysdal, co-founder, principal and executive officer of Seven Corners. "The best way to mitigate potential hazards when traveling outside of your home country is to equip yourself with current travel risk information, stay abreast of travel alerts and prepare for the possibility of experiencing illness or injury abroad."

Seven Corners committed significant resources in developing WellAbroad to ensure that the site is a comprehensive, one-stop resource that provides up-to-date travel warning data readily available via the Web from anywhere around the globe. Content provided on the WellAbroad Web site is updated daily resulting in the delivery of only the most relevant travel information to the visitor.

"While travel alert information is available at various resources across the Internet, WellAbroad is the first all-encompassing source available free of charge to anyone," Tysdal said. "WellAbroad is a testament to Seven Corners' dedication to holistically serving the safety and security needs of international travelers. From options for emergency evacuation and travel medical insurance to real-time travel alerts regarding adverse events in destination countries, we're providing the services and information necessary to safeguard the health and safety of people traveling abroad."

In addition to travel advisories and warnings, and travel health and safety information, WellAbroad contains general but country-specific background information including entry requirements, population, capitals and major cities, native languages, religions and airport locations. The site also provides common travel resources such as international area codes, language tools and currency and time zone converters.

For individuals, businesses and groups that have purchased travel medical, trip cancellation or other travel insurance policies through Seven Corners, customized WellAbroad reports are available that contain more detailed information including immunization indicators, quality of medical care, in-depth infectious disease concerns, and a list of preferred physicians and recommended hospitals included in the Seven Corners travel medical insurance network.
