Buying insurance today online is like taking a self-guided safari tour; you can do it yourself, but there are hidden risks and dangers. We’ll point out the coverages to protect clients from risk, and the client decides what policies fit best. Safari guides, but the customer ultimately decides.

Navigating the hidden dangers of home, life, auto and business protection just got a little easier for a new generation who may want to order insurance online– at Safari Insurance of Cincinnati.

Tom Tasset, Jr., president of HTT Agency, Inc., said his 50-year-old, second-generation, family-owned business will consolidate a north Cincinnati office into its office at 5879 Cheviot Road in Cincinnati. He has also updated the company’s business model, website and re-named it Safari Insurance.

“We recognize that people used to make an appointment to meet with an insurance agent personally and sit down with the agent to work out your best coverage for the cost,” said Tasset. “You got to know your insurance agent personally and became friends over the years. With the busy lives people have today, though, and the high-quality online tools available, people– especially young people– are now comfortable doing research online and ordering insurance after checking facts with their insurance experts and agents.”

The idea to rebrand his agency and offer insurance sales online came from a not-so-surprising source: the pandemic.

“This spring we were unable to travel, so I was home one day reminiscing about our trip of a lifetime,” he said. “It was an African safari a few years ago with our three young girls. The trip highlight was a tour in an open-air Jeep. We saw wildebeests, zebras, rhinos and elephants, all up close.”

At one point, the tour guide took Tasset’s family off road into six feet of grass, then stopped the Jeep. The guide pointed out that 15 feet away were two huge male lions eating a water buffalo’s head.

“My heart stopped,” said Tasset. “Our six-year-old daughter was sitting on the outside edge of the Jeep, closest to the lions. But in the next moment, I felt a sense of calm because I realized we had an experienced guide who knew the landscape and the animals. I trusted he’d keep us safe.”

Tasset said as he thought about updating his 18-employee agency to prepare for the future, he realized an ‘aha’ moment.

“Safari Insurance can be your guide in the world of insurance,” he said. “Buying insurance today online is like taking a self-guided safari tour: you can do it yourself, but there are hidden risks and dangers. We’ll point out the coverages to protect clients from risk, and the client decides what policies fit best. Safari guides, but the customer ultimately decides.”
