Blink and AwayCare to alleviate flight stress

InsurTech Blink Parametric has partnered with managing general agent (MGA) AwayCare to provide real-time flight disruption cover solutions in Canada.

The coverage will be underwritten by leading Canadian insurance group Northbridge Financial Corporation, a Fairfax company, supporting the delivery of flight disruption insurance solutions.

Blink Parametric, wholly owned by CPP Group, said it offers customers a proactive, real-time service that meets the speed and convenience that today’s consumers demand.

Blink said the service helps “ease the pain points of a flight delay in real-time for leisure and business travellers alike”, this is particularly important during a time of Covid-related travel disruption.

Once a traveller registers their flight details, Blink monitors that flight in real-time. Any flight delay that occurs to the registered flight, automatically results in a traveller being notified instantly and offered service choices within their policy terms – effectively automating the claims process.

Ryan Beaulieu, vice president operations, AwayCare said, “Changing the future of travel insurance is fundamental to what we do and adding real value through smart, simple InsurTech aligns perfectly with our one-stop-shop travel insurance service.

“As the travel sector emerges from uncertain times and we all start moving again in greater numbers across 2022, we want people to feel secure in the knowledge that when the unexpected happens, AwayCare will be right there with them offering assistance to alleviate the stress of their flight disruption.”
