Ryanair has further extended its online reach beyond flights sales by introducing multi-trip travel insurance.
The new service, underwritten by provider Europ Assistance offers cover on an unlimited number of European trips of up to 28 days each in duration with up to €2.5 million in medical expenses and €1,500 personal possessions cover.
Multi-trip insurance follows the launch of Ryanair Car Hire, Ryanair Rooms and Ryanair Holidays.
It is the latest digital development delivered by Ryanair Labs, under the budget airline’s ‘Always Getting Better’ initiative, which includes a personalised website and mobile app, as Ryanair strives to become the ‘Amazon of travel’.
Director of ancillary revenue, Greg O’Gorman, said: “As we continue to grow our annual traffic to 130 million passengers in the next 12 months, our customers have expressed an increasing need for annual travel insurance cover, so we’re pleased to launch this new multi-trip insurance service on the Ryanair.com website.
“We’ve partnered with Europ Assistance, a proven market leader with a solid financial standing and reputation, to provide a comprehensive and competitive annual travel insurance product and support service, at the same great low prices Ryanair customers have come to expect.”
The announcement came as Ryanair was forced to re-schedule a number of flights this morning due to a strike by handling unions at Berlin Schonefeld airport.
All flights scheduled to operate to and from Berlin between 5am and 11am local time have been rescheduled to depart at a later time, but no flights have been cancelled.
“Customers travelling to/from Berlin on Wednesday should allow extra time for their journey and expect potential further delays,” the carrier warned.
