Britam Holdings Plc and Voltic Kenya, a technology company offering ticket automation and parcel management solutions within the transport sector have partnered to offer a travel insurance service that will see passengers who buy tickets through Voltic’s i-Abiri booking platform, access a personal accident cover during the duration of their trip at no extra charge.
The new offering will provide travelers coverage of Kshs 50,000 on Accidental Medical Expenses, Kshs 15,000 on Ambulance Services, and Kshs 200,000 in the unfortunate case of accidental death or disability.
This service will see passengers using bus companies such as ENA Coach, Dreamline, Tahmeed, and Randa among others benefit from the partnership.
George Makori, CEO of Voltic Kenya said: “Voltic is dedicated to providing passengers and the entire transport sector with innovative solutions. Apart from just offering our customers a service moving them from point A to point B, we provide them a value-added service that provides additional protection in the course of their trip. We are aware of the crucial role that technology and innovation play in increasing insurance penetration levels and in critical sectors of the economy, especially the transport sector. Our collaboration with Britam will help us to address this issue.”
“This partnership with Voltic is well aligned with Britam’s strategy to be a customer-centric organization by serving Kenyans who may not have direct access to insurance solutions. Through the use of technology and tailoring products to certain customer segments, we are able to achieve this objective” said Britam’s Head of Telco & Fintech Partnerships, Simon Wanduga.
