Webjet OTA CEO David Galt explained that as a digital travel business, the new partnership, which officially commenced on 1 February 2020, will reinforce Webjet’s leadership position in online travel thanks to Cover-More’s ‘very strong digital capability’ in personalising travel insurance for travellers’ needs. “We continue to find new ways to deliver market-leading value to our customers and are delighted that Cover-More is so focused on personalised protection and proactive care. This means Webjet customers will be the real winners,” he said.
Meanwhile, Cover-More’s CEO for Asia Pacific, Judith Crompton, asserted said the new partnership with Webjet would employ the latest evolution of Cover-More’s purpose-built online sales and optimisation engine, Impulse.
“To lead the travel insurance sector in any market, you need to get the product, coverage and technology right. And Cover-More’s technology can deliver Webjet customers the greatest variety of offers and the most appropriate cover available,” she said. “We pride ourselves on putting the customer at the heart of our product offering. And we back up our offer and our products with an exceptional team of people and a 24-hour medical assistance team who know how to help if trouble strikes.”
