Grab Philippines and Chubb, the world’s largest publicly traded property and casualty insurer, launched Travel Cover – an extensive in-app travel insurance product that will help make Filipinos’ travel more seamless and worry-free.
With both international and domestic travel back in full swing, there is simply no stopping the wanderlust calls. However, concurrent with the return of tourism is the rise of travel-related challenges such as flight delays and cancellations, unforeseen medical problems, and last-minute plan disruptions. Dedicated to improving the lives of Filipinos via the use of technology, Grab Philippines is equipping traveling kababayans with insurance coverage – a necessary safety net – to protect them against the unexpected while traveling.
With just a few taps on the Grab superapp, consumers can avail of Travel Cover’s extensive coverage that includes domestic and international medical expenses resulting from an accident or illness; expenses related to untoward incidents like casualties and injury; expenses from taxing circumstances such as trip changes, lost baggage and personal property; and other travel inconveniences. Travel Cover also entitles consumers to COVID-19-related benefits, ensuring they are protected against unexpected medical costs and journey cancellation, or curtailment caused by the illness.
“As we further our commitment to making life better for Filipinos through our technology, we are launching Travel Cover– an exciting in-app insurance offering that we are confident will protect our kababayans from unwanted stress or financial loss while traveling. Tourism is flourishing, and we are optimistic meaningful products like Travel Cover will enable Filipinos to take part in the return of travel with greater peace of mind and utmost convenience,” said Grab Philippines country head Grace Vera Cruz.
Travel Cover is now available for purchase on the Grab app. Daily deposits for the new Grab insurance policy go as low as P410 for international travel and domestic travel.
“As a comprehensive insurance plan tailored for leisure or business travel, Travel Cover enables Filipinos to travel with confidence within and outside of their country. Chubb’s digital integration platform, Chubb Studio, continues to orchestrate our embedded insurance alliances with Grab, making it just as easy for Grab to add tailored insurance offers to their digital experiences as it is for its customers to purchase and submit claims,” said Chubb country president Mari Rachelle Canta.
