Weather risk management specialist CelsiusPro and insurance provider Allianz Global Assistance are launching a weather insurance which offers payouts for rainy days during holidays.
Zurich, 16. July 2012 – The weather insurance won’t be able to let the sun shine but a payout for rainy days aims toput the smile back onto travellers’ faces. The weather insurance is offered as an ancillary product which can be bought along when booking a holiday. For each Rain Day after the first Rain Day, travellers will receive CHF100 up to a total of CHF1,000. Mark Rueegg, CEO CelsiusPro: “We are very pleased with our collaboration with Allianz Global Assistance. The ELVIA Weather Insurance is an innovative product and a solution to a problem many holidaymakers face: Rain at their holiday destination.” Rain measurements are made at the closest official national weather station. The ELVIA Weather Insurance is available for many popular holiday destinations in Europe, Australia and North America.
