Hood Group has announced a new travel insurance partnership with P&O Ferries. The initial announcement was made by Hood Group in September 2017, but the formal launch has only now taken place. Cigna had previously been the travel insurance partner of P&O Ferries.
The cover is being underwritten by Allianz Worldwide Partners (AWP), with which Hood Group signed a long-term partnership deal in September 2017.
Hood Group has been particularly active in developing affinity travel partnerships since entering this market in July 2014 and numbers More Th>n, Legal & General and RAC Group as its partners. The first two are also underwritten by AWP whereas at present, the RAC partnership is underwritten by AXA.
P&O Cruises (an unrelated business) continues to partner with Holiday Extras for its travel insurance, although this too is underwritten by AWP.
