Bolt and Allianz Partners Team Up to Insure Scooter Fleets in 26 Markets

The insurance program has already been rolled out in Norway, Portugal and Sweden.
Dmitri Pivovarov, Director of Rentals at Bolt, said:

“At Bolt we are dedicated to making sure our scooters are as safe as possible and we are currently working on several safety features for both scooter riders and pedestrians around them. However, unfortunately accidents still happen. This is where the partnership with Allianz Partners helps us provide the safety net that scooter users need in the busy urban environments where they use our products.”

Together, Bolt and Allianz have launched an insurance program that automatically provides all Bolt scooter users with two types of insurance already embedded in the rental fee: Personal Accident Insurance and Rider General Liability Insurance. This means that riders are insured for severe own injuries (Personal Accident Insurance) as well as for damages that they cause to third parties (Rider General Liability) while riding the Bolt scooters. The program has already been rolled out in Norway, Portugal and Sweden and will continue to be implemented across all the 26 European markets where Bolt operates scooters over the following months.

Michael Maicher, Head of New Mobility for Global Strategic Partnerships at Allianz Partners, said:

“As Allianz has been at the forefront of being an important enabler for the future of urban and new mobility, we are extremely proud to strengthen and extend our partnership with one of the fastestgrowing mobility platform companies in Europe,” said Michael Maicher, Head of New Mobility for Global Strategic Partnerships at Allianz Partners. “Not only are we excited to grow the future of transportation together with Bolt, but we are also looking forward to extending our Allianz micromobility insurance offering to new markets like Estonia, Lithuania and Malta.”
