PassportCard Group President,�Alon Ketzef�said: “It is an honour to have received this recognition for PassportCard’s innovative technology in the United States.

“Continuous innovation to eliminate the inherent friction in insurance has always been our main focus; we will always seek to meet customers via their preferred channels. Whilst our end-to-end digital solution is important, it’s equally paramount that the personalised, 24/7 customer support we provide fully aligns with our tech advancements � a perfect combination that delivers PassportCard’s unique and unparalleled customer experience.�

Bringing seamless insurance to an expanding customer base

According to PassportCard, it is the only company in the world to offer real-time payment via a rechargeable debit card, in the event of any insurance related scenario. This includes payment to medical services, medication and/or compensation in the case of baggage loss, delays and other emergency situations.

The system processes a claim, activating the dedicated debit card issued to the customer when they purchased the policy. Following treatment, the customer pays with their card or digital wallet, without having to deal with the usual pain points of paperwork, processes and personal expenses.

With this new patent – which will provide IP protection and additional growth potential in North America, one of the key insurance markets in the world � the business has set its sights on further expansion, to bring superior cross-border insurance services to more locations and customers than ever.

Ketzef added: With our technology being recognised as unique, and other pending patents for additional innovation in customer experience, we feel in a stronger position than ever to expand into additional territories. We look forward to this next exciting step in bringing seamless and fuss-free insurance to the masses.”
