Munich Re subsidiary Roanoke partners with travel insurance tech startup battleface

Roanoke Travel Insurance, a subsidiary of Munich Re Specialty Group North America, has partnered with the travel insurance startup battleface to launch product sales in the United States.

battleface offers travel insurance products and assistance to modern travelers who don’t fit the outdated travel insurance industry standard of ‘one size fits all’. Its API-driven platform is supported by an experienced network of 24/7 assistance coordinators, medical providers and on-the-ground field agents who provide emergency claims, medical and travel assistance services globally.

Sasha Gainullin, Chief Executive Officer of battleface: ‘battleface is proud to offer products that meet the needs of US travelers who face challenging situations in equally-challenging destinations. With battleface, our customers can rely on the fact that their travel insurance is as tough as they are.’

This partnership enables battleface to offer its products and services to US residents in the underserved but growing market of adventure travel. battleface will provide a valuable partnership to specialty travel agencies, operators and advisors offering custom-built products for explorers, adventurers and more.

‘battleface has the technology, expertise and infrastructure in place for when the world reopens its doors. Adding in Roanoke’s travel insurance capabilities for US customers, this is a fantastic opportunity and we are excited to be working with them,’ said Roanoke Travel Insurance Division Vice President Lisa Conway.
