G1G Travel Insurance and Student Funding Group team up to ensure international students can travel safely; Tuition Fee protection programs also added for families.
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) April 30, 2009 -- With a rise in interest from students and faculty across the globe to travel abroad to study, Go One Global (G1G Travel Insurance Services) Corp. has teamed up with Student Funding Group (StuFund) to offer newly created, inexpensive medical and travel insurance packages for the protection of these educational travelers, including care options not available elsewhere.
Parents and students alike have expressed increasing interest worldwide in traveling abroad for study, and G1G has met their concerns for safety. "To better serve these students visiting new countries to study, G1G felt it was time to partner with an organization with a relationship to these scholars," explained Zain Jeewanjee, Founder and CEO of G1G. "Hopefully, these Medical and Travel insurance plans will encourage young scholars across the globe to visit prestigious universities and colleges internationally and feel safe while away from their homes," he added.
G1G's partnership with StuFund covers a variety of Medical insurance products for students, faculty, and their visiting friends such as dental and vision, medical facility, and perhaps most notably, travel medical benefits. Many recent travel industry reports have cited the burgeoning international student population in the U.S. -- a rapidly growing collegiate demographic since the inauguration of President Obama.
G1G is also partnering with StuFund to offer new tuition fee insurance packages featuring tuition refund insurance for eligible non-refundable tuition, room and board, and other fees due to medical withdrawal from school. Additional membership benefits include $10,000 accidental death insurance, identity theft services, 24/7 emergency travel and roadside assistance services, and more.
For over two decades, G1G has been providing travel insurance solutions to individuals and families away from home, making them the ideal partner for StuFund's efforts to protect international scholars. The Tuition Fees insurance program, meanwhile, allows G1G to extend its range of U.S. insurance packages to tuition at a time when families are most concerned about protecting their financial commitments.
G1G recently made news for its work during the Mumbai terrorist attacks, airlifting one of its customers to safety during the attacks. "I would never, ever travel without proper medical insurance and emergency evacuation coverage," that customer declared following the rescue.

StuFund is a student loan originator built on the philosophy that each and every student can and should have access to funding for quality higher education. The company's mission is to provide loans, particularly for students who could not afford college without such financing and to support and guide families through the financial aid process.
In addition to offering educational loans for undergraduate and graduate schools and college loan consolidation, StuFund's Knowledge Center provides expert advisement on college admissions and financial aid. It hopes to address the fact that many students do not have sufficient access to college advisement in their schools. Through partnerships with Universities, Corporations, and Non Profit Organizations, StuFund hopes to educate the public about the college application process and financing options.
