International Medical Group® (IMG®), a global insurance benefits and assistance services company, has announced a new partnership with Roamly Insurance Group (Roamly), the first integrated insurtech for travelers with unique RV insurance offerings.
According to a press release, IMG is pleased to present three travel and health safety products created for Roamly, which will initially be available to travelers booking trips on RV rental marketplace Outdoorsy and other travel marketplace platforms and companies.
“Partnering with Roamly is an exciting next step in IMG’s rapid growth in the travel insurance industry,” said IMG President and CEO Steve Paraboschi.
“Our travel and health safety expertise combined with our operational capabilities make this the perfect fit for IMG to fully support Roamly through their first-of-its-kind insurtech platform.”
The three IMG services Roamly will initially offer to Outdoorsy customers will include trip protection, interior damage, and travel medical insurance.
The Roamly Trip Protection plan offers travel cancellation and trip interruption benefits for unforeseen covered events, travel and baggage delays, and more.
The Roamly Interior Damage insurance plan offers protection against accidental damages to the RV rental’s interior while parked during a renter’s trip.
The Roamly Travel Medical is scheduled to launch in the coming months. It will ensure that travelers on international trips are protected in the event of unexpected illnesses, injuries, or medical emergencies that may arise while traveling abroad.
“We have seen the demand for RV rentals skyrocket since the onset of the pandemic. By partnering with IMG, we are paving the way for trip protection in the global RV and campervan market to meet that demand with the appropriate insurance offerings for outdoor travelers,” said Chief Insurance Officer for Roamly, Aaron Ammar.
“By offering the new Roamly products to Outdoorsy customers, we are able to better meet the needs of those who trust us with their outdoor travels while backed by a leading provider like IMG.”
IMG’s collaboration with Roamly is another example of cutting-edge insurtech and platform partners selecting IMG to develop and provide top travel safety products for their clients. With IMG’s purchase and self-service API connectivity capabilities and the ability to tailor the products it offers, IMG can help Roamly promote its new product to U.S. and European travelers.
“Being entrepreneurial and pioneering is at the core of what IMG does, and our new product offerings with Roamly prove that to be true,” said IMG Chief Commercial Officer Amanda Winkle.
“We are pleased to be a part of such innovation in the outdoor and adventure travel space, and we look forward to providing the best possible protection for travelers ready to get back out in the world.”
