International Medical Group Adds Device Protection to Insurance Plansby Dori Saltzman /
Thanks to a new partnership with insurtech provider bolt, International Medical Group (IMG) now offers optional add-on Mobile Device Protection to travelers purchasing a plan within its Patriot Travel series of travel medical insurance plans.
The add-on provides coverage for repair or replacement of a travelers’ mobile device if it is lost, stolen or accidentally damaged during their trip.
“We know how indispensable devices like cell phones and tablets have become in nearly every phase of travel: housing boarding passes and tickets, communicating with friends and family, and documenting your travels while abroad,” said Amanda Winkle, IMG chief commercial officer. “By partnering with bolt to offer Mobile Device Protection, we are taking another step toward our goal of providing products and services that meet nearly every traveler and expatriate need while away from home.”
With the add-on, bolt will help travelers with a broken mobile device get the device repaired, provide a cash settlement for the replacement cost of the device, or replace the device themselves.
IMG plans to offer the optional Mobile Device Protection add-on with more of its insurance products in the future.
