The partnership has been launched in Brunei with more countries and territories to follow in subsequent phases.
Chubb's travel insurance offers coverage for accidents, unexpected overseas medical expenses (including Covid-19 medical cover) and travel inconvenience, including loss of luggage, travel documents and trip cancellation. In addition, passengers will have access to medical and travel services provided by Chubb Assistance's 24-hour hotline, should they require help or advice during their trip.
The benefits are tailored to suit each traveller’s individual needs and they can add travel insurance during their online flight booking process.
Sabirin Hj Abd Hamid, acting CEO of Royal Brunei Airlines, said: "With the current open border situation, and shortage of staff in the travel industry globally, it is timely RB partnered with Chubb to provide a solution to manage any disruptions our passengers may encounter, that is beyond the control of the airline.”
Brian Hogan, Chubb's Regional Head of Leisure & Business Travel in Asia Pacific, added: "The launch is timely as travel rebounds across the globe. Borders are reopening and mobility restrictions are progressively being lifted. With travel insurance, including Covid-19 medical cover, travellers are regaining their confidence to take to the skies to explore the world again.”
