About Bolster Insurance

Besides the fact that the insurance and claims process is fully digitalized, there are a few unique starting points in the Bolster Insurance concept. Firstly, the mover is no longer involved in the insurance process, because of changing legislation and simply because advising on moving insurance is something different then the move itself. In this way, movers can fully focus on performing high quality service. To encourage them even more, they get rewarded for every ‘claim-free’ move. From now on, with a few clicks, you choose one of the four insurance packages that you need, and so you don’t pay for coverage that you don’t need. For instance, if your household is packed today and delivered tomorrow, you can skip the mold and mildew coverage. Also, 24/7 you can check your policy and the status of your claim in My Bolster Insurance. And finally, there is no more uncertainty about coverage or how your claim will be handled. Every insurance term is easy-to-understand explained within the process.

How it all started
In the second half of 2019 the first discussions were held with one of the leading Dutch movers with regards to the insurance programs for movers. Policy conditions and responsibilities were often not clear to customers and most of the process was paper based. Also European law (IDD) forced the insurance process to be arranged differently. This resulted in the revolutionary platform how it is built today; a fully digital solution for household goods insurance programs. With reliable partners such as Howden Insurances Brokers Nederland and Get Hooked (technology) Bolster Insurance has full confidence in making an impact on the customer journey of both expats and their employers.
