Blink Parametric has agreed to a further three-year deal with Blue Cross, Canada’s most trusted insurance provider.

Blue Cross was first to launch the Blink Parametric flight disruption real-time assistance solution in the Canadian market in October 2018. The solution is now offered by Blue Cross in eight Canadian provinces, including Ontario, Québec, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland & Labrador, and Prince Edward Island.

This extended, three-year agreement holds particular significance for the Ireland-based InsurTech. Blink Parametric CEO, Sid Mouncey, commented, “Blue Cross backed us right out of the gate in 2018, and was the first brand in Canada to use our innovative platform to assist insured travellers experiencing flight delays or cancellations. Their decision was prescient back then, ahead of the unprecedented global travel turmoil that was to follow. This agreement speaks volumes for the strength of our long-term collaboration and growth over the past five years. I’m proud of the great teamwork and look forward to the next chapter of serving the Canadian market.”

Speaking of the extended agreement,  Tim Bishop, Managing Director, Blue Cross of Canada said: “Our teams ensure that our policy holders enjoy travelling with confidence and peace of mind, whether they are exploring Canada or the world“Millions of Canadians trust that the travel coverage we offer delivers the assistance they need and we are excited to continue our successful partnership.”
