Hood Group extends affinity market offering with launch of new travel insurance product

Leading affinity insurance provider, Hood Group, has extended its range of solutions for the affinity market with the launch of a new travel insurance product.

Paul Firkins, Business Development Director at Hood Group, says: “In just a few years our home insurance partnership proposition has become a market leading solution, as our recent appointment by The Telegraph demonstrates. We deliver what we consider to be the best end-to-end multichannel customer journey for our partners, with each solution tailored specifically to their requirements. We believe there is room to do the same and more in the travel arena.”

The Hood Group has appointed a dedicated team of travel insurance specialists to spearhead the development of its new travel proposition.

Paul continues: “Our team is comprised of individuals with strong track records within travel insurance. Their expertise combined with our own experience of delivering affinity solutions will allow us to offer something unique. Not only are we providing a product that can be tailored to each partner’s service proposition and brand values, but equally as importantly we have the ability to act as an extension to our partners’ marketing teams, providing them with the additional tools and support they need to help to drive sales. No-one else does this and it is this philosophy of building a truly joined up partnership, which sets us apart from the competition.”

The Hood Group’s partnership with a number of different insurers means that its new travel product can be tailored and priced according to its partners’ requirements and individual channels. A range of extensions such as gadget cover can be seamlessly added-on enabling customers to build a policy that covers their individual travel needs and lifestyles.

All partner support and customer services are provided in-house including dedicated account management to support and develop the partnership, marketing and product development including fully responsive websites, a UK customer service centre and an outbound and inbound sales support team.

Paul concludes: “This is just the first of a number of new developments that we are working on to enhance the insurance solutions we can bring to the affinity market and we look forward to announcing further initiatives over the coming months.”
