TicketPlan Partners With MissionTix In The U.S.
U.K.-based Ticket insurance and protection provider TicketPlan, which operates in North America under a strategic partnership with APRIL Travel Protection, has announced a partnership with Baltimore-based live event and attraction ticketing providers MissionTix.
Thanks to the new partnership, MissionTix will offer ticket insurance solutions to their customers purchasing tickets, which includes protecting them against their inability to attend events and attractions for a host of unforeseen circumstances.
Jason Schreier, CEO of APRIL USA, said: “We were delighted to be selected to partner with MissionTix in order to provide a Ticket insurance service to their customers.
“MissionTix are well respected and work with a number of high-profile festival, event and attraction partners and we are pleased to see both TicketPlan’s and APRIL’s internationally trusted ticket insurance brands feature on their platform.”
Joe Loverde, CEO of MissionTix, added: “MissionTix has a reputation for providing our partners and their customers the highest levels of service. When selecting our ticket insurance partner we needed to make sure that they were well established, reputable and could provide a compliant and sustainable nationwide solution. TicketPlan powered by APRIL was the only provider who could meet all of these criteria.”
TicketPlan was established in the UK in 1999. Last year, it teamed up with APRIL Travel Protection, which is located in Miami, FL, and serves as TicketPlan’s regional headquarters for Latin America, the Caribbean and U.S. markets.
APRIL Travel Protection is a sub-division of the leading wholesale insurance broker in France, the APRIL Group, founded and headquartered in Lyon, France, in 1988. APRIL is a publicly traded company on the Paris Stock Exchange. It operates in 31 countries, with nearly 4,000 employees.
