Accessing insurance plans as easily as sending a few text messages will soon be a reality thanks to FijiCare Insurance Ltd.

At a product launch event for their newest offerings, the Comprehensive Travel Insurance Cover and VuvaleCare, an online platform for bundled microinsurance, FijiCare announced that travellers to Fiji may be able to engage with their travel insurance plan via Viber as early as eight weeks from date.

Having received a positive response to their Visitor’s Insurance plan offered at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, FijiCare has elected to expand the product to offer a Comprehensive Travel Insurance cover that includes medical, COVID-19, and accidental death benefits.

Both visitors to Fiji and citizens of Fiji who go abroad are eligible for the cover.

The event also marked the launch of VuvaleCare, an online platform through which the bundled microinsurance product is offered. The bundled microinsurance cover provides for funeral assistance, term life, fire on dwelling, and personal accident insurance coverage.

“Innovation is at the heart of FijiCare’s commitment to its policy holders and new customers, ensuring that acquiring insurance is made as simple, accessible, and as convenient as possible,” said executive director Avi Raju.

“We at FijiCare are technology-driven and our team is always enthusiastic about following global market trends to launch unique insurance solutions in Fiji and the Pacific.

“In line with this, I am also thrilled to announce that FijiCare is leveraging cutting-edge AI technology to make online transactions for Fijians simple and accessible via rapid and quick messaging platforms.

“This move is in line with the changing trends and customer expectations of seamless experience in this digital age.”
