About Us

Delivering Above and Beyond Travel Insurance

In 1919, a bold young entrepreneur named Cornelius Vander Starr went to Shanghai, China and built a thriving insurance agency that blended international expertise with local knowledge to form what would become known as the Starr Companies. Today, Starr is one of the largest and fastest-growing insurance companies in the world, delivering unparalleled service and expert underwriting.

Starr Assist Travel Insurance and Assistance plans include comprehensive coverage for trip cancellation, trip interruption, trip delay, medical expenses and more. Coverage is available for residents of all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia.

Starr Assist Travel Insurance and Assistance offers coverage for those non-medical emergencies too. Through Starr Companies’ wholly owned subsidiary Assist Card, we provide comprehensive concierge and assistance services with every insurance policy. Our global assistance team can help you with finding or replacing lost travel documents, booking that last minute restaurant reservation, and a host of other services.

Worry Less. Enjoy More.
