Ebix Australia Adds TravelCard To Its EbixExchange Platform

1006 Days ago

JOHNS CREEK, Ga. & SYDNEY, Australia, Aug. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ebix, Inc. (NASDAQ: EBIX), a leading international supplier of On-Demand software and E-commerce services to the insurance, financial, e-learning and healthcare industries, today announced that it has added leading travel insurance player TravelCard to its EbixExchange platform.

Headquartered in Tel Aviv, Israel, TravelCard officially launched their real-time travel insurance products in Australia in late 2018 partnering up with the Hollard Insurance Company.  The addition of their corporate travel insurance products to the EbixExchange platform was a logical next step forward in terms of getting mass adoption and distribution reach.

TravelCard, a one-of-a-kind insure-tech aims to address the pain points of travel insurance head-on. Unlike most other travel insurance products from other companies that can take up to 45 days and 13 interactions for a claim to be processed, TravelCard tends to pay claims within a matter of minutes. Accordingly, TravelCard has achieved great success in a number of markets, including Israel, Germany, Canada, and the UK, and now they’ve brought their revolutionary product to Australia.

Here’s how it works: when a TravelCard Policy is purchased, the policy holder receives a special debit MasterCard in the mail. When something bad happens and a claim needs to be made, funds are instantly transferred to the card, with claims processed in real-time (minutes) besides having Claims processing and support in Australia itself. This results in basically no out-of-pocket expenses, no mountains of paperwork, and no waiting.

TravelCard offer three types of cover: Corporate cover for business, Leisure cover for individuals, and Business class for employees.

Leon D’Apice, Managing Director - Ebix Australia said, “We are delighted that TravelCard have chosen Ebix as their medium of distribution to brokers. Our EbixExchange platform is today the dominant aggregation of brokers in the country transacting insurance business on our on-demand platforms. Besides, Ebix has a vast majority of the brokers using our backend systems to run their businesses in Australia. That puts us in a unique position to allow providers to distribute their products expeditiously through our platforms.”

Ebix Australia is a dominant leader in insurance exchanges and back-end systems for brokers and carriers in multiple insurance sectors including P&C and Life. It has pioneered and implemented concepts in Australia that have been an example to the rest of the insurance industry across the world.
