Mustard partners with insurtech Battleface
Mustard Underwriting, which specialises in providing insurance solutions to the sharing economy and digital marketplace, has partnered with Battleface as the insurtech launches its travel insurer platform in Australia.
The platform provides flexible travel insurance and “turns the archaic model of one-size-fits-all on its head,” Battleface says, as its partners build their own tailored products.
Ohio-based Battleface has so far also partnered locally with AWAI Travel to provide pre-trip cancellation insurance as standard with every purchase, and Wise & Silent which has built its own products on top of battleface’s API.
“Battleface offers an incredibly competitive product that allows for easy integration into a customer user journey,” Mustard Founding Partner and Global Head of Partnerships Jon Calverley said.
“The Battleface team have been extremely aligned at designing tailor-made product solutions to meet the different needs of our customers. It was also incredibly important for us to find a partner that prides itself on claims management and Battleface are best in class.”
Sydney-based Battleface MD Australia and New Zealand Matt McLellan says he is thrilled to partner with Mustard Underwriting and bring the customisable API partner product to Australia.
“By equipping our partners with the technology to unbundle travel insurance and tailor the product to suit their clients' needs, we're able to collaborate to bring a targeted solution which will benefit travellers Australia-wide,” he said.
“When travel insurance is unbundled into individual benefits, partners can build their own products on top of APIs.”
Partners can build their own products using Battleface’s platform with predetermined rates and benefits, giving customers flexibility. Customisable plan options, variable excess levels and bespoke benefit limits are available.
Standard cover from Battleface includes protection against trip cancellation up to $40,000 per person and a personal liability insurance of $2.5 million, unlimited medical. Customers also have access to 24/7 emergency medical, travel, claims and customer service teams.
“Custom built embedded products, relevant benefits and responsive customer service from any device, any time, any place – welcome to a better insurance experience,” it says.
