AXA Partners has extended its UK and Ireland partnership with travel insurer Coverwise.
The global insurance provider has entered into a new long-term contract with Coverwise following a relationship in Germany and Italy from 2011, with the two companies joining UK operations in 2016.
Coverwise managing director Mark Shaw said the partnership would allow Coverwise to expand into new territories.
He added Brexit and the pandemic meant travel insurance was now all the more necessary:
“The provision of dependable and trustworthy insurance for travellers is a vital service, particularly in light of Covid-19 and the forthcoming changes to the European Health Insurance programme,” he said.
Paul Moloney, AXA’s general manager Ireland and account director UK said:
“At AXA Partners, we have been extremely busy transforming the digitalisation of our business, for the benefit of both our partners and their customers. Therefore, we are pleased to see the digital plans that Coverwise also has in place, whilst exploring new markets and products.”
