Blink Parametric and BCAA collaborate for revolutionary parametric travel insurance

Blink Parametric, a front-runner in the world of real-time assistance solutions, has inked a partnership with the British Columbia Automobile Association (BCAA), renowned as BC’s premier choice for travel insurance and among Canada’s most respected brands.

This unique collaboration witnesses the launch of a pioneering parametric travel insurance product suite by BCAA.

At the heart of the partnership, Blink Parametric offers its innovative Flight Disruption solution. Customers register their flight details on a special BCAA portal before their journey. Blink then keeps an eagle eye on these flights in real-time. Should there be a delay exceeding 2 hours in the flight schedule, the system springs into action.

The affected BCAA customer receives an instant notification, followed by immediate choices, all in line with their insurance policy terms. This helps mitigate the hassle and fallout from such flight delays. The perks for BCAA customers include options like accessing airport lounges or even getting a real-time cash payment.

Not just flights, there’s also the Lost and Delayed Airline Luggage solution, a real boon for travellers. If a customer’s checked luggage goes AWOL after touching down at an airport, they can simply log this on the BCAA portal. Based on the delay duration or if the luggage remains lost, payments are made. The ultimate goal is to uplift the customer’s experience, especially during such trying travel moments.

Blink Parametric CEO Sid Mouncey expressed his enthusiasm about the partnership, “We are excited to be working with BCAA as they introduce real-time parametric solutions into their extensive travel insurance portfolio. BCAA is the number one travel insurance provider in British Columbia and continuously explores creative ways to protect more people in more ways.

“The decision to bundle our two, award-winning travel assistance services for simultaneous rollout is a world-first for Blink Parametric and we are proud to be supporting BCAA across our high-performance platform, delivering world-class travel solutions packaged in a customer experience that delights.”

Echoing these sentiments, Patrick Haunschmidt, Director of Insurance Products at BCAA, stated, “Providing money or lounge pass access to our customers the moment a flight or baggage delay happens empowers them to take care of their immediate needs without fuss or worry. Access to easy, automatic real-time benefits is exactly the kind of amazing customer experience travellers with BCAA insurance deserve – Blink Parametric understands this and empowers us to deliver.”
