J6W, Philinsure and discovermarket forge partnership to provide personal accident protection for bus passengers in the Philippines

09 May 24

Philippines, 9 May 2024 – The international insurtech discovermarket and Philinsure, the leading insurance broker in the Philippines, today announced a partnership with J6W, the country’s technology provider for bus operations, aimed at offering personal accident protection to bus passengers at the point of booking.

The first phase of the partnership will see the launch of personal accident insurance products for one major bus operator in Philippines. These products provide coverage of up to PHP$30,000 per passenger per ticket, safeguarding passengers against incidents such as accidental death, permanent disablement, loss of belongings as well as unprovoked murder and assault. The insurance product is preselected when passengers check out via the direct channel of Bicol Isarog Transport System Inc., but passengers can choose to opt out.

Patrick Bühler, CEO and Founder of discovermarket, said, “We are proud to form this partnership to extend protection to all passengers, allowing Filipinos to embark on their bus journeys with peace of mind. Leveraging our technology, we have streamlined the insurance experience by integrating insurance products seamlessly into bus ticketing systems, ensuring speed to market for the launch. Our shared vision is to harness technology to make insurance accessible and affordable, enriching every aspect of our customers’ lives.”  

Gordon Alan “Dondi” Joseph, CEO of Philinsure, shared, “Philinsure is thrilled to announce a dynamic partnership with discovermarket to revolutionize ticketing systems bundled with VAS of insurance protection. This collaboration marks a significant milestone in our mission to deliver innovative solutions to our customers. Combining both parties’ expertise, we are poised to deliver groundbreaking products and services that will exceed expectations and redefine industry standards of service and efficiency.”
