Blink Parametric and Getcover.com have launched a series of bespoke online travel insurance products.
The products utilise a real-time parametric flight delay solution for their eligible travel insurance policyholders.
Getcover.com is the first partner to use Blink Parametric-enabled technology via Firemelon’s Magenta Insurance System platform.
In addition, the product is underwritten by specialist insurer Financial and Legal Insurance.
Carl Carter, chief commercial officer of Blink Parametric said: “Getcover.com is a genuine pioneer of online direct to consumer travel insurance, leading the way with innovative, accessible insurance cover and benefit solutions. We are honoured to work with the team as they differentiate their travel insurance proposition within the hyper-competitive UK travel insurance market by providing a real-time flight delay service delivering a cash payment or an airport lounge pass in a traveller’s time of need. We look forward to enhancing their travel insurance product offering and customer service delivery with immediate effect.”
Julian Triggs, head of travel partner development, Newpoint Insurance Brokers said: “This partnership with Blink Parametric represents another significant step for Getcover.com as we steadily expand our outstanding portfolio to now include intuitive, real-time travel assistance products.
