AXA Partners in the UK and Ireland has entered into a new long-term contract with travel insurer Coverwise.
Expanding on a partnership that started in Germany and Italy in 2011 before extending into the UK in 2016, they will work closely to develop an affordable product suite for customers.
AXA Partners is also supporting Coverwise’s expansion plans and the diversification of its existing product offering.
Mark Shaw, managing director at Coverwise, said: “The provision of dependable and trustworthy insurance for travellers is a vital service, particularly in light of Covid-19 and the forthcoming changes to the European Health Insurance programme.”
