FROM the start of last month, Webjet and Cover-More commenced a new travel insurance and assistance partnership, with the insurer providing exclusive coverage for the OTA across Australia and New Zealand.
According to Webjet CEO David Galt, the tie up between the two was an important agreement in regional market and would provide customers more personalised protection and proactive care, through Cover-More’s services.
“We are a digital travel business, and Cover-More has very strong digital capability in personalising travel insurance for travellers’ needs, so this is a partnership which reinforces Webjet’s leadership position in online travel,” Galt said.
Cover-More is deploying its latest purpose-built online sales and optimisation engine, Impluse, in the partnership with Webjet.
Judith Crompton, CEO for Asia Pacific, Cover-More, said “to lead the travel insurance sector in any market, you need to get the product, coverage and technology right. And Cover-More’s technology can deliver Webjet customers the greatest variety of offers and the most appropriate cover available.
“We pride ourselves on putting the customer at the heart of our product offering. And we back up our offer and our products with an exceptional team of people and a 24-hour medical assistance team who know how to help if trouble strikes,” Crompton added.
