Chubb partners with Royal Brunei Airlines for embedded travel insurance

Property and casualty insurer Chubb has partnered with Royal Brunei Airlines to offer customers an embedded travel insurance product.

Chubb’s travel insurance coverage includes accidents, unexpected overseas medical expenses (including COVID-19 medical cover) and travel inconvenience, including loss of luggage, travel documents and trip cancellation.

The partnership will also see passengers gain access to medical and travel services provided by Chubb Assistance’s 24-hour hotline.

The collaboration also includes Hepstar, an aggregator of ancillaries, which promises to deliver a range of products and bundles to complement Chubb’s travel insurance and improve the booking and travel experience of Royal Brunei Airlines’ passengers.

Mr. Sabirin Hj Abd Hamid, acting CEO of Royal Brunei Airlines, said, “At Royal Brunei, we aim to offer our passengers a seamless end-to-end experience, from booking their tickets to the end of their travel journey. This partnership with Chubb comes at a perfect time to provide them with peace of mind and a fuss-free booking experience for their upcoming travels.

“With the current open border situation, and shortage of staff in the travel industry globally, it is timely RB partnered with Chubb to provide a solution to manage any disruptions our passengers may encounter, that is beyond the control of the airline.”

The airline added that it plans to make the offering available in other markets beyond Brunei soon.

Earlier this year, Hippo’s First Connect has partnered with Blink to offer personal cyber insurance to independent agents that participate in First Connect’s InsurTech marketplace platform. First Connect’s cyber protection insurance product is underwritten by BlinkSM by Chubb.
