Insurance provider battlefront has announced the launch of travel insurance coverage for space tourists.
The new policy is a customized offer with benefits available including accidental death and permanent dismemberment. Underwritten by certain underwriters at Lloyd’s, the policy can be valid for space flights operated by Elon Musk’s SpaceX, Jeff Bezos’s Blue Origin, Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic, and others.
“We are proud to be providing this pioneering product for space tourism,” said Sasha Gainullin, CEO of battleface. “We regularly revisit our policies to ensure we are relevant to today’s marketplace, and while space tourism is still in its infancy, several hundred space flights have been sold to civilians, and demand is growing. This type of product fits with our values of providing people with the confidence to fulfill their dreams.”
