Lost Luggage Insurance & assistance
Offer your customers real-time support when their checked luggage cannot be located following an airport arrival.
Lost or delayed luggage is one of the biggest sources of stress for those travelling with checked bags. We’ve all been there, you arrive at your destination and get to the airport carousel and your luggage is nowhere to be seen.
This cutting-edge product uses parametric technology to offer real-time support to airline passengers whose checked luggage cannot be located following an airport arrival. If the customer’s luggage cannot be located after 30 minutes they will receive a £50 payout, if it still cannot be located after 48 hours, they will receive a further £500 payout per registered passenger.
No complex claims process. No waiting around. Just a digital financial solution exactly at the point assistance is needed.
How it works
Customers have to register their flight details 24 hours before they travel. Then if their luggage does not arrive at the destination airport, customers have to notify the customer services or lost luggage desk and upload an image of their delayed luggage receipt onto a white-labelled portal. The clever tech will begin searching for the missing checked luggage straight away.
The parametric technology automates the entire process from the moment the traveller registers their luggage as missing at the customer services desk at the destination airport. The repatriation service of Smart Luggage keeps the customer informed via text message and email to help locate and return the luggage.
