14th September 2021 - Author: Matt Sheehan

Swiss Re has announced a new partnership with community-based travel platform BlaBlaCar and motor insurance specialist L’olivier Assurance, the French branch of Admiral Group, to launch a digital motor product in France.

The product, called BlaBlaCar Coach, is a smartphone app that offers drivers personalised coaching and tips for safer driving and is available with an annual car insurance.

Powered by Coloride, Swiss Re’s technology for driver coaching and assessment, the BlaBlaCar Coach app is activated at the start of a journey and analyses a driver’s conduct at the wheel.

“We are delighted to have the privilege to initiate this collaboration with the global leader in alternative mobility, BlaBlaCar, and an insurance partner of the calibre of L’olivier Assurance,” said Walter Eraud, CEO France, Belgium and Luxembourg at Swiss Re.

“The powerful combination of BlaBlaCar’s mobility tech expertise and reach, L’olivier Assurance’s ability to devise an attractive motor product and Swiss Re’s superior scoring and analytics capabilities have the potential to transform this important segment of the motor industry. We are excited about the product launch.“

Nicolas Brusson, co-founder and CEO of BlaBlaCar, also commented: “With millions of people in our community sharing cars and buses every day, BlaBlaCar has a responsibility in making the road a safer place. We have always leveraged technology to transform the way people travel.”

“Creating a new and improved driving experience, the BlaBlaCar Coach app, together with its insurance offer, is a way to put Swiss Re and L’olivier Assurance’s expertise into practice at the service of drivers,” Brusson continued. “Every driver engaged in this process will have a direct impact on their own safety and savings, and, at a larger scale, an even bigger impact on road safety and sustainability.“

Pascal Gonzalvez, CEO France at L’olivier Assurance, added: “At L’olivier Assurance, the client is always at the heart of everything we do. That is why we are very proud of joining forces with BlaBlaCar and Swiss Re for the launch of a novel and innovative product that responds to the market needs with a sustainable approach that is also good for our planet.“
