Voom targets escooter boom with on-demand insurance for per-trip coverage

Though many people will assume that they are sufficiently covered for any damage (physical or otherwise) caused by an ill-conceived scooter stunt, that isn’t necessarily the case. Voom will offer coverage that encapsulates third-party liability, property, and personal accidents, and is designed to serve as an “additional layer” on top of any existing health care coverage the user may have.

“With the rise of on-demand mobility services such as escooters, we discovered that in most cases, riders are not covered in case of an accident,” Voom cofounder and CEO Tomer Kashi said. “And much more importantly, they are not aware of this fact. Voom will ensure that users of unique mobility platforms can grab insurance on-the-go from their mobile devices whether they ride, fly, or sail.”
