Toffee Insurance, an insurtech firm, has joined with EaseMyTrip, an online travel platform, to provide innovative and customized travel insurance options to its consumers.
Toffee Insurance will manage all travel insurance packages for added value and provide extra protection to EaseMyTrip customers who have to cancel flights due to medical crises as part of this partnership.
According to EaseMyTrip, the free-of-charge policy minimizes the possibility of losing booking fees because clients will receive a full refund, including any money withheld by airlines.
Rikant Pittie, co-founder, EaseMyTrip, said, “While travel is reviving at a strong rate, customers are still concerned about medical emergencies that can arise right before a travel plan. We are delighted to partner with Toffee Insurance while we continue to offer our first-of-its-kind, free-of-charge, full refund medical policy that provides the additional travel flexibility required during such trying times for our customers. We believe that Toffee’s proven track record of delivering great results will complement EaseMyTrip’s exceptional efforts to offer value-added services to its customers.”
Customers must select this policy while booking their ticket on EaseMyTrip’s website or app to be eligible for this service. A doctor’s prescription specifying the medical issue must be uploaded to claim the policy.
Rohan Kumar, co-founder and CEO of Toffee said, “By joining hands with EaseMyTrip, India’s second-largest online travel platform, we are bringing not only one of the fastest but also the best-in-class insurance services to the Indian travellers. Additionally, our end-to-end digital integration with EaseMyTrip also enables the digitization of the entire insurance process. EaseMyTrip has been at the forefront of travel bookings and exceptional customer service, and we, at Toffee are delighted to partner with them to protect their customers’ travel plans and provide them with additional travel confidence during these unprecedented times.”
