As part of the deal, the companies will collaborate to provide underwriting services for Scoot’s travel insurance policies – branded as Scootsurance – for customers taking flights from Vietnam and Singapore.
A range of over 30 travel insurance benefits is currently offered under the Scootsurance brand. The policies are offered as add-ons when customers book their flights via the Scoot website.
“We are pleased to partner with AXA Partners to provide customised travel insurance plans for Scoot passengers so that they can fly with peace of mind,” said MSIG Asia Pte Ltd CEO Clemens Philippi. “As travel picks up, we look forward to extending the partnership to more markets in Asia.”
“As international travel continues to pick up pace after a hiatus, there is no better time for Scoot to reiterate our commitment to providing customers with seamless and fuss-free travels through our partnership with MSIG and AXA Partners,” said Rachel Tan, Scoot’s Vice President of Planning, E-commerce and Distribution.
AXA Partners US appointed its new Director of Business Development for Travel last month.
