Pablow Introduces Automation Tool for Travel Insurance

Staff Writer | April 11, 2017

Pablow, an insurtech startup focused on improving access to and utilization of vacation rental travel insurance globally, announces the immediate availability of Pablow Pronto, a proprietary website creation tool which fully automates the distribution of travel insurance for vacation rental property managers and Airbnb hosts.

“Literally millions of new travelers are choosing to stay in vacation rentals all over the world,” says Steve Sherlock, co-founder of Pablow. “However, many travelers don’t realize that, unlike the hotel industry, vacation rentals often carry very strict cancellation conditions. So, it’s a perfect storm, because small to medium-sized property managers and Airbnb hosts are not equipped to offer guests an applicable trip cancellation insurance policy. That’s where Pablow Pronto comes in, making access to travel insurance seamless and instant for travel brands, and providing insurers with significant new business opportunities.”

As an agency licensed in all 50 states, Pablow looks to provide accessibility to travel insurance by streamlining the distribution process, while helping large insurance companies access hard-to-reach channels. Pablow Pronto helps individual property managers and Airbnb hosts create a customized travel insurance website in minutes with a personalized URL, custom graphics, and fully-compliant text. In the last couple of months, 20 new customers have begun using Pablow Pronto, making travel insurance available to approximately 15,000 additional rental properties.

"Our partnership with Pablow helps us efficiently distribute our iTravelInsured vacation rental travel insurance products to guests,” says Wendy Stahl, national sales manager at International Medical Group. “We've seen strong growth in policies sold over the last few months, and we look forward to continuing to work closely with the Pablow team as they increase the number of vacation rental companies who are able to access our travel insurance policies."

A 2015 graduate of the Global Insurance Accelerator cohort, Pablow’s commitment to the travel insurance segment has enabled the company to build trusted relationships with respected insurance company partners, including IMG, Allianz Global Assistance, AIG Travel Guard, Arch and iTravelInsured.
