MUNICH--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PassportCard real-time travel insurance is a revolutionary solution for travelers introducing no-out-of pocket expenses, no paperwork and no long claim process.
PassportCard real-time claim handling is facilitated by a debit card which is provided to the customer when a travel insurance policy is purchased. Then, when customers travel abroad and need medical help, they call 24/7 customer care and the claim is settled immediately, in real-time. The card is topped-up and the customer can proceed to the medical provider and get the medical treatment without the need to file any claim forms upon returning home and without having any out of pocket expense.
“As PassportCard’s exclusive travel insurance partner in the tourism industry in Germany, we are integrating the new real-time travel insurance solution, a simple, customer oriented service for travelers, regulating the claims settlement in real-time. This is a significant additional offer for both our customers and distribution partners”, explains Olaf Nink, CEO of AGA International S.A., German branch.
