AXA Partners extends partnership with travel insurer Coverwise

AXA Partners UK & Ireland has entered into a new long-term contract with travel insurer Coverwise following a collaborative partnership in Germany and Italy over the past 10 years.

Under the deal, the two companies will work together to develop a new product suite, whilst exploring new markets and products with a focus on digital advancements. AXA Partners will also support Coverwise’s expansion plans and the diversification of its existing product offering.

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. 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.

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

Mark Shaw, managing director at Coverwise, added: “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 programme.

“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.”
