Trip.com and AXA Partners announce travel insurance products for French and German travellers
The launch will continue to strengthen and develop their partnership in Europe
Global travel agency Trip.com and global assistance and insurance company AXA Partners have announced a significant European expansion of new travel insurance products for German and French travellers.
The two new insurance solutions provide benefits such as medical, cancellation and baggage cover, which can be selected when booking a flight on Trip.com.
The cancellation-only ‘Basic’ insurance solution has proven especially popular in mainland Europe as travellers seek reassurance when booking their next trip and includes coverage if the trips are cancelled due to Covid-19. The ‘Travel Plus’ medical insurance policy protects customers for cancellation and medical costs if they contract Covid-19.
Xavier Blanchard, AXA Partners Travel Insurance CEO and Global Head of Travel at AXA Partners, said: “Trip.com Group is one of the world’s largest online travel agencies, and so our partner understands the need for products to be distributed compliantly and with the customer’s best interests at heart. We, at AXA Partners, understand the need for this to be achieved in a simple, engaging and understandable way.”
The strategic partnership started seven years ago in China focused on creating insurance products adapted to the market. It was then deployed in South Korea in 2018, in Singapore in 2020 and in the UK in September 2021.
