Travel insurance agreement extended for three years
The UK arm of Mondial Assistance has signed a new three year pan-European contract with lastminute.com.
Under the new agreement, Mondial Assistance will deliver online travel insurance and assistance solutions to customers booking flights, city breaks and package holidays through lastminute.com, across France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK. Customers are offered travel insurance during the booking process, with a range of competitive quotes provided by Mondial Assistance.
Nick Smith, group had of travel extras at lastminute.com, said: “Our partnership with Mondial over the past eight years has been extremely successful, and this agreement confirms our relationship throughout Europe and provides the opportunity to increase ancillary revenue sales dramatically. The service we, and our customers, receive from Mondial Assistance has been of the highest quality, and we are delighted to be continuing our partnership for at least another three years.
“Over the coming months we will be working together to look into possible new products and services for our customers, including Missed Event insurance and insurance for Hotel Only bookings. Working closely with Mondial we are absolutely confident that we will be able to provide all insurance products at competitive prices and in line with the latest FSA regulations.”
Corporate & travel sales director for Mondial Assistance in the UK, Ben Smart, added: “Mondial Assistance has considerable experience in providing fully branded online insurance products, and we are particularly excited to be continuing our successful relationship with lastminute.com. In tough times such as these it is a great encouragement for us to renew such a prestigious and important contract, and we look forward to developing new, bespoke, solutions for the website’s customers and further increasing ancillary revenue.”
