Traveloka Malaysia, a technology company that provides online travel booking platform for domestic and international destinations, has teamed up with Chubb Insurance Malaysia to offer flight insurance plans.
In a statement to A+M, Traveloka’s spokesperson said the partnership is not an exclusive one and is based on a commission fee. As such, the monetary value of the partnership is based on the number of consumers who have made an insurance purchase.
Traveloka chose to partner with Chubb due to its “comprehensive range” of general insurance solutions for large corporates, small and medium-sized enterprises and consumers, the spokesperson added. Traveloka will raise awareness about the new insurance plans via newsletters, blog articles, social media posts and homepage banners.
Under the partnership, users can choose to include Chubb Travel Protection for domestic and international flights when they purchase tickets on Traveloka. Its country manager for Malaysia and Singapore, Halif Hamzah, said it is constantly striving to improve the company’s products and services by placing the customer at the forefront. Hence, adding flight insurance to its products is a “vital step” to ensuring a seamless and convenient journey for all its consumers, he added.
