Regional Insurtech Igloo And Vietnam's AhaMove Strengthen Partnership With 3 New Insurance Products

HO CHI MINH CITY, VIETNAM, Nov 25, 2021 - (ACN Newswire) - Igloo, Singapore-headquartered and Southeast Asia-focused insurtech, strengthens its partnership with AhaMove, Vietnam's fastest-growing delivery platform, with 3 new insurance product offerings: Hospital Cash Allowance, Motor Insurance (coming soon), and Transit Insurance - for over 120,000 riders and 2 million customers. These products come on the heels of AhaMove and Igloo's Personal Accident Cover for AhaMove's drivers, launched in May this year, bringing the total of products offered to four.

In light of the complicated COVID-19 situation across the country and recognition of the challenges to its drivers, AhaMove and Igloo are committed to supporting the health and financial well-being of AhaMove's drivers. Over the next 3 months, 3000 drivers purchasing a Hospital Cash Allowance plan receive a 60% discount. Under this plan, which is underwritten by UIC Insurance, drivers are entitled to an allowance for daily hospitalisation, due to the impacts of the pandemic, up to 50 days a year, and a one-time sum insured for surgical allowance. Drivers choose from 3 plans starting from 45,000VND/month, with hospitalisation allowance of up to 1,000,000VND/day.

Nguyen Huu Tu Tri, Country Manager of Igloo in Vietnam, said, "We are happy to partner with AhaMove to develop three unique products that address the current pain points experienced by AhaMove's drivers. Goods delivery services and delivery drivers have played an essential role in our lives, especially when COVID-19 cases in Vietnam are still high. With Igloo's speed-to-market approach, we were able to design solutions that address the current situation just within 6 months. Moving forward, Igloo will actively explore possible strategic partnerships to offer insurance protection solutions for the locals in Vietnam."

Tran Le Hoai Bao, Head of Product for AhaMove, said, "We are delighted to work with Igloo again given the successful partnership grounded on the values of ensuring both the financial and health protection of our drivers. Our drivers play an important role in the supply chain so the local citizens can continue with their daily lifestyles smoothly."

To purchase the Hospital Cash Allowance plan, drivers just need to access their AhaMove app to choose one of three plans (Bronze, Silver, and Gold), make payment, and activate the plan. Users can change or upgrade their plan at any time with simple steps, or check the claim status within the app. To make a claim, drivers will be directed to Igloo Claim Portal for further instruction.

Earlier this year, Igloo and AhaMove launched a Personal Accident plan in Vietnam to provide insurance designed specifically for the unique risks that delivery drivers face in their daily work. The insurance plan covers drivers up to VND 200,000,000 starting from as low as 16,002VND/month.

In Vietnam, Igloo aims to embark on more partnerships and expand their team and tech capabilities to fulfill the mission of providing digitally-driven lifestyle focused products that suit the changing needs of consumers today.
