WeTravel and Pattern Insurance partner to simplify international insurance in multi-day travel booking experience

We Travel

WeTravel partners with Pattern Insurance to offer integrated travel insurance directly during the booking process for international group tours, enhancing traveler security and convenience.

AMSTERDAM, NL. – WeTravel, an integrated booking and payment platform for thousands of multi-day and group travel businesses, announced its partnership with Pattern Insurance, an insurtech MGA specializing in custom embedded insurance products.

The collaboration will allow the more than half-a-million travellers who book international multi-day, group tours–through thousands of global clients that use WeTravel’s platform to manage their booking process–seamless access to comprehensive insurance coverage, as an immediate add-on while completing their bookings. WeTravel has an existing travel insurance partnership for United States travellers with Travelex, the Pattern Insurance partnership will provide global insurance for all domestic and international travelers booking through a WeTravel client.

“Joining forces with Pattern Insurance to open international insurance to any traveller that books a trip with our clients allows us to continue to support memorable and worry-free travel experiences, all across the globe,” said Ted Clements, WeTravel’s CEO. “Buying travel insurance should be a necessity – and many tour operators require travel insurance to be purchased 30 days before a trip departs – so having it integrated into the booking process helps the operator not only to support purchasing insurance but to provide the right insurance for all their adventurers.”

Last year, a study revealed that a third (31 percent) of travellers have departed on a tour without travel insurance. Among 18-34-year-olds, this figure rises to 49 percent, putting travellers at risk of being left out of pocket should unforeseen circumstances prevent their trip from going ahead. However, international travel often requires regional, activity-level and other-factor specifics that require different insurance policies that can overwhelm the traveller. With an integrated partnership, travel businesses can now work directly with Pattern’s policies to best sell insurance to cover international travelers, based on the experiences they’re booking.PatternPattern is an Insurtech MGA with a platform for embedding relevant protections to enhance booking and registration experiences for amateur sports, ski resorts, travel, and other events. Pattern’s mission is to personalize and simplify how customers purchase insurance by enabling businesses to easily embed relevant protection offers within their customer journey.

“In a post-Covid world, it’s more important than ever for travellers to protect their booking from circumstances out of their control. Pattern’s new partnership with WeTravel empowers travellers to protect their trip at the point of booking, making for a seamless and worry-free booking experience,” said Meitav Harpaz, CEO of Pattern.

The partnership between WeTravel and Pattern Insurance represents a significant advancement in the travel industry, as it streamlines the process of obtaining comprehensive insurance coverage for international travel, at a global scale.
