Launch of a new travel insurance product targeting adventurous travelers
The new Explorer product is designed for active travelers looking for coverage that would otherwise be excluded, such as sports, emergency medical treatment, evacuations and accidents, as well as travel to some of the more isolated destinations.
“Our products are designed to take into account the activities and destinations of travelers, which is what prompted us to create the Explorer Travel product, an option that is already proving very popular with our customers,” said Lisa. Conway, Chief Underwriting Officer for battlefield. “We noticed a big trend among travelers interested in nature / ecological and exploration-based activities, such as trekking, hiking, cycling, rafting and camping in unusual destinations, it was therefore a natural decision for us to launch a product that specifically addressed this demographic.
The product covers a combination of leisure and non-professional sports activities, including cycling, mountaineering, fishing, variable scuba diving for skilled and unskilled divers, etc. Winter sports include downhill and cross-country skiing, snowboarding, off-piste, and cross-country skiing, etc.
Additional options for the specifics of the trip
battleface provides customers with quotes and the ability to add benefits to the Explorer Travel product, such as Cancellation coverage for any reason, as well as upgrades for sports equipment, rental vehicle damage, death and accidental mutilation and search and rescue. Additional benefit options that customers can choose to add include baggage loss or delay, emergency medical evacuation, travel medical expenses and more.
Last summer, battleface added a new Covid-19 travel insurance package.
