Embedded insurance refers to the integration of insurance coverage into a non-insurance product or service, making it a seamless part of the customer experience. The insurance is typically provided as part of the product or service being offered.
An example of embedded insurance could be an airline booking company offering travel insurance as part of the purchase of a new airline ticket. Another example could be a car rental company offering rental car insurance as part of the rental agreement. In both cases, the insurance coverage is seamlessly integrated into the product or service being offered, making it more convenient for the consumer to access and use.
The traditional insurance model has its limitations - it is often sold as a standalone product, leading to low customer engagement and a lack of understanding of the product's value. This is where embedded insurance comes into the picture. It is designed to address the challenges faced by traditional insurance by delivering insurance protection in a more convenient, accessible, and affordable manner.
