New offering from Axa and BlablaCar
AXA and BlaBlaCar have announced that they have jointly developed BlaBlaSure, an insurance offer for ridesharers. This novel annual car insurance offer will be available to BlaBlaCar members who own a car registered in France. This insurance offer is fully digital: subscription takes place online and three levels of coverage are available: third party + auto glass breakage; intermediate, including theft and fire; comprehensive.
On the BlaBlaCar platform, members can also obtain a quote, select their level of coverage and choose the ‘vehicle loan and 0 km assistance’ option.
The new insurance is part of a continuing partnership between AXA and BlaBlaCar since 2015, which has already led the two partners to offer BlaBlaCar members an assistance service included in the ridesharing. The two companies are now working on extending the BlaBlaSure car insurance offer to BlaBlaCar members in other European countries.
AXA comments: ‘Digital platforms are a unique opportunity for AXA to support our customers in their daily lives and meet their new needs. AXA also has a role to play in supporting new players as well as major economic and social transformations. Today, AXA's ambition is to become the leading insurer of digital platforms. These disruptive partnerships help us achieve this ambition’.
