Partnership to offer ticket insurance

TicketGuardian has entered into an exclusive partnership with International Speedway Corporation (ISC) to offer NASCAR fans ticket insurance – specifically, ticket insurance for events held in ISC facilities.

Through the multi-year agreement, TicketGuardian will start providing an insurnace option for fans purchasing their motorsports tickets in advance.

“The opportunity for TicketGuardian to work for such a dedicated group of fans is a major milestone towards our endeavors in the live events industry and with the help of ISC, we hope that peace of mind and TicketGuardian become synonymous with motorsports fans everywhere,” said TicketGuardian founder and CEO Bryan Derbyshire.

A release said that TicketGuardian’s coverage will be set at an affordable price, and that the insurance will save fans from the burden of having to resell their ticket or wasting their ticket if they are unable to attend. The insurance can essentially provide customers with a reimbursement for their ticket, even if those tickets are traditionally non-refundable.

“We are excited about our new partnership with TicketGuardian,” commented ISC managing director of consumer engagement services Tom Canello. “Their fresh approach to providing a low-cost ticket insurance coverage option is a benefit to our race fans and provides peace of mind that their purchases are protected. We look forward to integrating TicketGuardian into the ISC family of tracks.”

ISC owns and/or operates 13 of America’s motorsports entertainment facilities.

TicketGuardian is the title sponsor of an upcoming motorsports event – the TicketGuardian 500, to be held in the ISM Raceway (one of the facilities the ISC operates) in Arizona this month.
