Klook and ZA Form Joint Venture to Offer Travel Insurance

by November 23, 2021

Travel and leisure booking platform Klook and ZA Tech, the technology venture founded by ZA International and backed by Softbank’s Vision Fund 1, announced a joint venture (JV) that will accelerate the availability and accessibility of travel-related insurance for consumers across the globe.

The agreement will synergise Klook’s global presence and hyper-localised go-to-market strategy, alongside ZA Tech’s experience in insurance innovation and technological know-how – ensuring global consumers will have seamless access to a broad selection of travel-related insurance policies at competitive prices.

With this JV, insurers will be able to partner with Klook to feature their insurance products on its travel and leisure platforms.




The agreement will see Klook work closely with insurers to design products that address the pain points of consumers in this new normal.

Klook will kickstart travel-related insurance products on its platform by the end of this year, with a focus on the Asia Pacific region.

AXA and Chubb are the first two insurers partnering with Klook to feature a substantial product line.
