Cau­tion­ary tales of un­for­tu­nate trav­ellers suf­fer­ing grave in­juries and re­ly­ing on fam­ily, friends or a crowd-fund­ing page to pay for emer­gency treat­ment abound across the globe. It’s so com­mon that a smart trav­eller might even be in­clined to plan for the worst while ex­plor­ing, which is why AXA In­sur­ance has part­nered with travel ser­vices ex­pert SATS to pro­duce the mo­bile phone ap­pli­ca­tion Ready to Travel. Tai­lored for mil­len­nial trav­ellers, Ready to Travel serves as a per­sonal concierge, adapt­ing its ad­vice to users’ itin­er­ar­ies and ad­ven­tures. The cen­tral fea­ture of the app is a ser­vice that al­lows users to quickly and eas­ily pur­chase travel in­sur­ance, in­clud­ing an au­to­mated flight and bag­gage de­lay claims process that al­lows trav­ellers to be com­pen­sated im­me­di­ately for a de­layed flight or miss­ing bag­gage. “[W]e are set­ting a new stan­dard in the digital in­sur­ance space, de­liv­er­ing travel pro­tec­tion so­lu­tions seam­lessly so mil­len­nial trav­ellers can fo­cus on what mat­ters most to them – their trip ex­pe­ri­ence,” said Leo Costes, AXA’s man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of gen­eral in­sur­ance.
