Cover Genius, the embedded insurance company that protects the global customers of the world’s largest digital companies including Booking Holdings, Intuit, eBay and Shopee, has announced its continued growth within the mobility market with a major partnership with Ola, one of the world’s fastest-growing unicorns.

“Another partner bringing embedded protection to life once again confirms that digital companies are the future of distribution,” Angus McDonald, CEO and Co-Founder of Cover Genius said. “For 6 years now we’ve been working with partners including Booking Holdings’ transport division. Our award-winning XCover platform has since been integrated by the world’s largest digital companies and helped revolutionize protection in industries such as retail, travel, fintech and logistics, and we are proud to work with Ola on an innovative solution that helps bring peace of mind to their marketplace. We’re proud to welcome OLA as another embedded insurance partner within the Cover Genius family.”
