TuGo, a Canadian travel insurance provider, has launched MyFlyt, a complimentary service designed to ease the frustration of flight delays for its customers.
MyFlyt service instantly gives travel insurance customers access to an airport lounge pass or cash payout, when their flight is delayed by two hours or more.
“At TuGo, travellers are at the core of why we do what we do. As a customer centric organization, we’re constantly looking to improve their experiences, and MyFlyt is a great first step,” said Kathy Starko, TuGo’s executive director and chief production officer. “We can’t give travellers back lost time, but we can give them a place to relax or some cash to keep them busy while they wait out their flight delay. Instantly and effectively, MyFlyt does just that for our travel insurance customers.”
TuGo’s MyFlyt service was developed by Blink, one of the world’s fastest-growing travel InsurTechs. Blink is an innovative data driven travel disruption solution. Once a traveller registers their flight details with MyFlyt, Blink monitors that flight in real-time. When a flight is delayed by two hours or more, the traveller is automatically notified via text message and e-mail.
