InsuraGuest Technologies (TSXV: ISGI) this morning had a major announcement related to its recently developed travel insurance product. The firm has entered a contract with Centred, an online travel and wellness platform.

Both parties believe increasing consumer confidence will assist in enhancing bookings and associated revenue over time,” commented President Reed Wright on the announcement.
