The underwriting team at MAPFRE Asistencia will use Riskline’s real-time alerts, country, and regional risk assessments to inform their decisions for travel insurance policies. The data covers over 225 regions and countries around the world and features comprehensive safety and travel health information spanning political and security crises, travel disruptions, major upcoming events and high-risk locations.
Emanuele Scansani, Director of Partnerships and Strategic Relations at Riskline, said: “Having up-to-date risk information is crucial for travel insurers, especially at this time when real and perceived risk levels aren’t what they used to be. Knowing what’s happening on the ground in destinations around the world lets insurers make more accurate decisions and offers a better experience for customers because policies are smarter and more agile.”
Recently, Sebastian Kaisin, Head of The Global Network/Strategic Suppliers at MAPFRE Asistencia, spoke to ITIJ about why the travel and health insurance sector needs to boost investment in technology.
