The global insurer has entered a collaborative partnership with a travel insurer to cater to customer needs more closely 

AXA Partners UK & Ireland has extended its long-term partnership with travel insurer – Coverwise.

The collaborative partnership will see AXA Partners work closely with Coverwise to develop a product suite for customers that meets their needs while being affordable.

The global insurer is also extensively supporting Coverwise’s expansion plans and the diversification of its existing product offering.

It follows a successful relationship in Germany and Italy from 2011, before the two companies joined their UK operations in 2016.

Paul Moloney, general manager Ireland & account director UK at AXA Partners, said: “After many years of partnering successfully, we are delighted to be able to continue our relationship with Coverwise.

“We are looking forward to working together in the next phase of our partnership and continuing to protect and add value to Coverwise customers.”

Digital advancement

Both partners are putting digital advancements at the forefront, to improve the customer experience.

“At AXA Partners, we have been extremely busy transforming the digitalisation of our business, for the benefit of both our partners and their customers. Therefore, we are pleased to see the digital plans that Coverwise also has in place, whilst exploring new markets and products,” Moloney added.

Meanwhile, Mark Shaw, managing director at Coverwise, said: “The provision of dependable and trustworthy insurance for travellers is a vital service, particularly in light of Covid-19 and the forthcoming changes to the European Health Insurance program.

“Following a close and collaborative partnership over the past 10 years, we are pleased to extend our long-term relationship with AXA Partners and look forward to working together to deliver added-value protection and service in both new and existing territories.”

AXA Partners is a transversal business unit offering solutions in assistance services, travel insurance and credit protection.
