The innovative travel insurance provider has made it onto FinTech Global’s annual The INSURTECH100 list

The list is a yearly rundown of the insurtech companies that FinTech Global considers the most innovative; the companies that make the list are those that are seen to be doing the most to solve major industry challenges, improving cost savings and driving efficiency.

Selected from a pool of more than 1,000 companies and being awarded such recognition makes this a very proud day for us. Three years after we started Blink, we continue to grow at speed, driven by our product innovation, insurance partnerships and our ambition to provide insurtech solutions to end users in every corner of the world.”
