Specialist Lloyd’s insurer Jubilee has been appointed by Blue Insurances, provider of travel insurance, gadget, pet, wedding insurance and car hire excess, to provide gadget insurance and collision damage waiver (CDW) schemes for its Irish and UK customer base.
Jubilee’s appointment will see the insurer building on Blue Insurances existing gadget insurance product, launched in 2010, with an all risks scheme that provides customers with a claims replacement programme managed in Ireland by Jubilee’s claims service partner Outsource Services Group (OSG), an independent, Irish owned, specialist outsourcing firm.
Jubilee’s CDW cover is offered alongside Blue’s travel insurance product providing higher limits of cover compared to its previous scheme, and also offers supplemental liability cover for North America.
Joint Managing Director of Blue Insurances, Ciaran Mulligan, said: “Blue is recognised for its award-winning insurance solutions and innovative approach. Jubilee has demonstrated its experience and ability to respond to the challenge of delivering relevant protection that meets the evolving needs of our customers.”

By combining their experience, capabilities and skills with Jubilee’s product and affinity market knowledge, we aim to develop a successful portfolio in Ireland.”

We are delighted to have been appointed as their claims partner, and to be working together to build on these new schemes with others across Ireland.”
