Oona Insurance Philippines has partnered with Filipino mobile payment service GCash, offering its Smart Flight Delay insurance product through the GInsure Marketplace.

According to Manila Standard’s report, this collaboration aims to create accessible travel insurance solutions for Filipino travellers.

What to expect from the Oona and GCash partnership

Smart Flight Delay insurance gives travellers lounge access in the event of a flight delay of at least 60 minutes. The insurance can be purchased through the GCash app.

“This agreement with Oona Insurance Philippines is very timely now that the summer season is on. We expect a lot of our GCash users to travel to many destinations and for them to have insurance coverage against a real pain point, in what is supposed to be an exciting and much anticipated trip, is definitely a game-changer,” said Winsley Bangit, vice president and head of new business group at GCash, as reported by Manila Standard.

GCash is a major e-wallet provider in the Philippines, with over 81 million users. The partnership with Oona aims to bring customer-centric insurance products like Smart Flight Delay insurance to Filipino travellers, making travel protection more accessible.

“GCash is a beloved brand and an integral part of every Filipino’s daily life and has made financial services simple, secure, and smooth. We are delighted to make our innovative travel insurance product available on GCash to bring worry free travel to more Filipinos as they explore the world. This is the first of many such innovative products we will be introducing soon,” said Abhishek Bhatia, founder and chief executive of the Oona Insurance group.
