Sunworld Travel launches new policies

David Oliver Associates (DOA), the underwriting agency, has agreed a three-year partnership with AXA for the relaunch of Sunworld Travel, its online travel facility.

AXA will underwrite Sunworld policies that include improvements such as increased cover limits, increased upper age limits, a new economy policy and reduced rates.

DOA said the changes were a result of more than six months research and development.

David Oliver, managing director of DOA, said the tie-up with AXA was the “perfect fit”.

“We wanted to work with a leading insurer to take Sunworld to the next level,” he said.

Mike Keating, managing director of personal lines at AXA, said that he was pleased to be able to work with David Oliver on its new travel proposition.

“As well as new cover options, Sunworld Travel will be the first product in the broker market to offer independent travellers’ cover, an important option in today’s travel insurance market.”
