Motor assistance company Mondial Assistance has launched itself into the UK travel insurance market.

Following its recent merger with Elvia Travel Insurance, the new company aims to offer both short term and annual business travel products for blue chip companies.

Peter Nott business service manager from Mondial Assistance has said their merger with Elvia was to help launch both companies in the travel insurance market in the UK.

Elvia already has a big travel insurance presence in Europe. The Mondial Travel Division will also work closely with Corporate Clients to develop bespoke services and products.
