RAC has appointed affinity provider Hood Group to launch its latest travel insurance product, with Rightpath Claims appointed as claims handlers.

Hood Group will develop a dedicated team to drive the marketing and advisory services for the RAC travel insurance product.

Hood Group chief executive Simon Hood said: “RAC wanted to refresh the benefits available to its customers and make it easier for them to buy cover. We have created a quality product at competitive prices that remains true to RAC’s brand values while developing a quick and easy customer journey, both on and offline.”

The new product will offer a competitive travel package and will include additional cover for winter sports and gadget protection.

Existing RAC members will also receive a Driving Holiday Pack if they take out the insurance for a motor holiday.

RAC insurance director Mark Godfrey said: “In refreshing our travel insurance offering we saw an opportunity to make things simpler for our customers as we know there are a huge number of different policies available on the market, offering wildly varying levels of cover.”

All policies will be underwritten by AXA.
