Pioneer celebrates 25th anniversary of online Travel Insurance
Twenty-five years ago, DR-WALTER revolutionised the insurance industry by introducing online travel insurance through reiseversicherung.com. What seemed like a dubious idea at the time has now become the norm for people worldwide. DR-WALTER, an established travel insurance broker with a 60-year history, had the foresight to embrace online insurance early on. Since 1998, reiseversicherung.com has been offering comprehensive coverage and has grown into the largest travel insurance comparison portal in German-speaking countries.
The concept of accessible online insurance was the driving force behind the launch. Reinhard Bellinghausen, Managing Director of DR-WALTER, recognised the internet's potential and introduced reiseversicherung.com in June 1998. This move made it possible for travellers to find the right insurance from the comfort of their homes. In 2003, the website underwent a redesign, enabling not only online purchases but also insurance service comparisons.
As the first comparison portal for travel insurance in the German-speaking world, reiseversicherung.com continually improved its tools for finding optimal coverage. The platform prioritises user-friendly interfaces and innovative technologies to enhance the online shopping experience.
Large selection of offers, personalised solutions
Covering a wide range of needs, reiseversicherung.com serves holidaymakers, business travellers, students, and adventurers. Specialised products cater to unique travel scenarios, including long-term coverage for globetrotters and tailored plans for business travellers. For sports enthusiasts, there are policies for specific activities like skiing, diving, and mountaineering.
BDAE is amongst the offered insurances. Our company which has almost 30 years of experience as an expert in insurance abroad took part in DR-WALTER's anniversary celebration at the end of June. "It is great that two companies with a combined century of experience in the industry are working together in such an amicable and solution-oriented way," summed up BDAE Managing Director Philipp Belau. BDAE Sales Director Torben Roß shares this assessment: "The joint and cooperative collaboration is of great value for our sales."
