Travel insurance business Blink has agreed a new pan-Asian partnership with Generali Hong Kong.

Generali will expand its product offerings to include travel disruption insurance services for reinsurance clients across the region.

Blink’s platform tracks flight delays or cancellations, automatically resolving inconveniences through partnerships with insurance companies.

Paul Prendergast, chief executive of Blink, said: “We’re delighted to announce our partnership with Generali Hong Kong. Our travel insurance innovation platform, coupled with Generali’s market insights and pan-Asian reach will allow us to continue building and delivering great customer experiences and giving them peace of mind when travelling.”

Cillin O’Flynn, chief executive of Generali Hong Kong Life, added: “We are excited to partner with Blink to bring innovation to our reinsurance partners across Asia. Technology is key to providing an improved customer experience and we believe Blink’s platform is best in class for delivering true innovation in reinsurance.”

Cork-based Blink was acquired by Leeds-headquartered CPP Group in March 2017.
