Following the global partnership between AXA and BlaBlaCar last May, AXA Seguros and the world's leading ridesharing platform signed an agreement on August 6. BlaBlaCar's members in Spain will benefit from free of charge additional insurance cover, in addition to the drivers' mandatory insurance policies.
The product includes:
- A 24/7 roadside assistance service during the journey that guarantees drivers' and passengers' arrival at the destination. In case of an accident, the vehicle will be towed to the nearest garage if it cannot be repaired on the spot. Passengers and drivers are guaranteed paid-for alternative transport options to ensure that they reach their destination safely if the vehicle cannot be repaired in a reasonable period of time.
- In case of a personal accident the driver will receive a compensation regardless of his existing cover, as well as legal support in order to avoid potential disputes with passengers.
- A forgotten belongings service, which covers the shipping cost of the items that were left in the vehicle by passengers.
