Insurtech for embedded protection, Cover Genius has partnered with American airline Spirit Airlines.
Through the partnership, the airline will integrate XCover, Cover Genius’ global distribution platform, through which Spirit Airlines guests, who are non-US and non-Canadian citizens, will have the option to purchase personalised embedded protection, backed by a speedy claims process, for the first time.
“We’re committed to providing our guests with the best value in the sky, unbundled fares and customisable travel options,” said Rana Ghosh, Vice President of Omnichannel Sales at Spirit Airlines. “Partnering with Cover Genius allows us to further enhance our guest experience, offering guests in multiple regions tailored travel protection for any destination.”
Angus McDonald, CEO and Co-Founder of Cover Genius, added: “We’re thrilled to partner with Spirit Airlines to help international travellers feel more confident in their booking.
“While embedded protection in travel isn’t new, many airlines offer customers a one-size-fits-all policy that fails to address that different travellers have different needs. We’ve flipped that model on its head by offering customers flexible protection – tailored to their itinerary or destination – backed by real-time data. They also enjoy a frictionless claims experience with instant payments in 90+ currencies.”
