Bolt, the largest scooter operator in Europe and Allianz Partners have extended their collaboration through a new three-year partnership that will provide insurance to Bolt electric scooter users across 26 European countries.
The groups have jointly launched an insurance program that automatically provides all Bolt scooter users with two types of insurance already embedded in the rental fee: Personal Accident Insurance and Rider General Liability Insurance.
This will see that riders are insured for severe own injuries (Personal Accident Insurance) as well as for damages that they cause to third parties (Rider General Liability) while riding Bolt scooters.
The program has already been rolled out in Norway, Portugal and Sweden and will continue to be implemented across all the 26 European markets where Bolt operates scooters over the following months.
Dmitri Pivovarov, director of Rentals at Bolt, said: “At Bolt we are dedicated to making sure our scooters are as safe as possible and we are currently working on several safety features for both scooter riders and pedestrians around them.
“However, unfortunately accidents still happen. This is where the partnership with Allianz Partners helps us provide the safety net that scooter users need in the busy urban environments where they use our products.”
Michael Maicher, head of New Mobility for Global Strategic Partnerships at Allianz Partners, said: “As Allianz has been at the forefront of being an important enabler for the future of urban and new mobility, we are extremely proud to strengthen and extend our partnership with one of the fastest growing mobility platform companies in Europe.
“Not only are we excited to grow the future of transportation together with Bolt, but we are also looking forward to extending our Allianz micromobility insurance offering to new markets like Estonia, Lithuania and Malta.”
