Students can now take out personalised Winter Sports protection thanks to a collaboration between education sector specialist Endsleigh Insurance and its partner Pattern. This innovative approach to Winter Sports insurance is the latest development in the partnership between Endsleigh and Pattern and uses global insurtech MGA Pattern’s insurance platform, to offer students tailored winter sports cover.
Whether snowboarding, skiing, or simply enjoying the apres-ski, this unique cover will protect students against damage to their equipment and provide a refund for unused ski passes in the event of illness and injury.
Alison Meckiffe, chief executive of Endsleigh, said: “If you’re a student who has paid a lot of money for a ski holiday this winter, the last thing you want is anything ruining that trip and throwing that money away, whether it’s a last-minute cancellation due to an injury or damage to your equipment when you arrive. We’re constantly looking for ways to innovate and offer our customers bespoke protections tailored to their specific needs, and our partnership with Pattern helps us easily achieve this.”
With recent OnePoll stats claiming that 57% of adults would rather book activity-filled breaks than beach holidays, the launch of Endsleigh’s new Winter Sports Protection is extremely timely.
The ability to shape insurance to meet students’ individual requirements can now extend beyond skiing in the Winter. With Pattern’s platform, Endsleigh can easily design and roll out any number of protections to address students’ different needs for holidays and breaks throughout the year.
Meitav Harpaz, CEO and co-founder of Pattern Insurance, said: “The new Winter Sports protection we’ve developed with Endsleigh is a great example of how we work with partners who have a unique audience to develop tailored products. This is the second product we are rolling out with Endsleigh, and with the ease of using our platform, we anticipate this new product from Endsleigh will be very popular with students looking for a winter getaway this year.”
