Hong Kong/Singapore, 26 June 2020 – Growing insurtech company bolttech announced today its expansion to Austria with the launch of its partnership with leading local telecommunications operator, Drei. The partnership will bring bolttech’s innovative device protection to Drei’s customers around the country, beginning with a mobile phone switch service “Drei Direkttausch”, the first non-insurance switch programme in the country.

 

bolttech’s Austria entry increases its presence to 12 markets across three continents, with its device protection offering now present in Austria, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Italy, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Vietnam.

Another step towards improving our customer experience and delivering easy solutions to meet their essential service requirements. Together we will provide Drei customers with new and innovative ways to protect their smartphones.”

 

Elsewhere in Europe, bolttech device protection brought its switch programme to WINDTRE customers in Italy in late 2019. bolttech will also launch its brokerage offering in Italy in the coming months, connecting insurance providers with individual and corporate customers to offer digital insurance products quickly and seamlessly.

 

Andrew Cons, General Manager for Europe at bolttech, commented, “bolttech’s device protection enables people to live an uninterrupted digital lifestyle by protecting the technology at the centre of their lives.
