Travelers insurance was formed from two separate companies, the St. Paul Fire and Marine Insurance Co. established in 1853 and Travelers Insurance Co. founded in 1864. As the name implies, Travelers insured people who were traveling by train or steamboat at a time when such travel less safe and reliable. In 1866, Travelers expanded to include all types of accidents, not just those that occurred when traveling.
The united companies have issued some impressive firsts – the first policy on the automobile in 1897, as well as the first policy for space travel in 1969. The two companies had been writing policies for nearly 100 years before some of its competitors even entered the market. They merged into one in 2004 under the name was the St. Paul Travelers Companies. Three years later, it changed its name to The Travelers Companies.
Today, Travelers has large offices in Hartford, Conn., New York City and St. Paul, Minn.
