Blink Parametric And Canada’s BCAA Enter Partnership
Cork, Ireland 10th October 2023 – Blink Parametric has partnered with British Columbia Automobile Association (BCAA), BC’s top choice for travel insurance and one of the most trusted brands in Canada. BCAA is piloting a unique, bundled parametric travel insurance product suite. The service includes both Flight Disruption and Lost/Delayed Luggage real-time assistance in a world first for Blink Parametric. The service will initially be offered as an option to single trip travel insurance policies.
The Blink Parametric Flight disruption solution requires a customer to simply register their flight details via a dedicated BCAA portal prior to travel. Blink Parametric then monitors the flight(s) in real-time. If a delay of 2 hours+ occurs on the flight schedule, the BCAA customer is automatically notified and offered instant choices in line with their policy terms to help alleviate the stress and consequences of the delay. The BCAA assistance options include a choice of airport lounge access or a cash payment, issued in real-time.
Similarly, the Lost and Delayed Airline Luggage solution offers real-time support to customers whose checked luggage cannot be located following an airport arrival. A BCAA customer simply registers their lost luggage via the BCAA portal. Payments are delivered at agreed levels of delay or if the luggage is eventually lost. The result in each case is an enhanced customer experience during a time when the traveller is experiencing inconvenience and frustration.
“We are excited to be working with BCAA as they introduce real-time parametric solutions into their extensive travel insurance portfolio,” said Sid Mouncey, CEO of Blink Parametric, “BCAA is the number one travel insurance provider in British Columbia and continuously explores creative ways to protect more people in more ways. The decision to bundle our two, award-winning travel assistance services for simultaneous rollout is a world-first for Blink Parametric and we are proud to be supporting BCAA across our high-performance platform, delivering world-class travel solutions packaged in a customer experience that delights.”
“Providing money or lounge pass access to our customers the moment a flight or baggage delay happens empowers them to take care of their immediate needs without fuss or worry,” said Patrick Haunschmidt, Director of Insurance Products, BCAA, “Access to easy, automatic real-time benefits is exactly the kind of amazing customer experience travellers with BCAA insurance deserve – Blink Parametric understands this and empowers us to deliver.”
This project was a culmination of collaboration between BCAA and Blink Parametric with the support of Red Consulting.
