CoverMeTM Travel Mobile Site and CoverMeTM Packing App


Project Overview

Manulife Financial has announced the launch of the CoverMeTM Travel mobile site and the CoverMeTM Packing App*, both of which are designed to increase convenience for travel insurance consumers. The rollout of these mobile touch points reflects the brand's customer focus and the fact that more and more consumers are using their smartphones as part of the purchase process.


Experience revealed that a large percentage of purchases made through the 1-800-COVER MEŽ phone number are for last-minute emergency travel insurance. The CoverMe Travel mobile site tailors to this behaviour, enabling consumers to purchase travel insurance at the last minute and while they are on-the-go. In fact, 67% of Canadians own a smartphone or tablet and 27% of owners report having used their smartphone to make a purchase. (Source: AskingCanadiansTM, 2013).

CoverMe Travel Mobile Site

The new CoverMe Travel mobile site enables busy travelers to purchase travel insurance on-the-go. As such, the site provides an additional, valuable service for potential and existing customers and reinforces the message that CoverMe Travel insurance has its customers covered - especially on mobile where consumers are spending more of their time.


Designed to meet consumer needs, the CoverMe team developed a new travel insurance product, the CoverMe Travel Single-Trip Emergency Medical Plan, designed specifically for the mobile initiative. The plan targets single-trip travelers who purchase insurance at the last-minute. The mobile site and the plan expand the convenience of making a phone call to mobile web browsing.


To visit the CoverMe Travel mobile site on your mobile phone, go to m.coverme.com.
