Chubb launches pay as you roam travel insurance

Insurer Chubb has developed a pay as you roam travel insurance proposition, which uses mobile phone roaming data to identify when customers are away from their home country and to activate coverage automatically at a daily premium. It will be made available through the insurer’s partners in the banking, fintech and telecommunications industries.

Rubén Rivero, head of travel insurance, Continental Europe, Middle East and North Africa, at Chubb, said: “Once users sign up for the service, the process of getting travel insurance becomes very simple because everything is done automatically. Customers pay a daily rate so they are only charged for what they use and payment - through their mobile phone bill or direct from their bank - is also simple and secure.

“We believe this is a genuinely innovative and disruptive technology because it fundamentally changes the way in which people buy travel insurance and that is a clear benefit to our partners.”
