Rene is a new travel insurance player

Rene, the travel insurance startup “addressing tomorrow’s travel needs today,” is live.

Founded in 2019 and led by Argentinean entrepreneur Atilio Luis Spaccarotella, Rene sees the future of healthcare and insurance evolving into “caresurance,” a user-centered approach that focuses on people’s daily wellbeing, giving them access to the right type of care, when and where they need it. The LA-based startup – backed by Lair East Labs – a startup accelerator for founders interested in launching businesses in the US with access to Asia Market, offers travel intelligence, travel insurance, and wellbeing travel benefits for both individuals and businesses.

Rene, which is currently available on the App Store, allows users to buy travel insurance with the option to add adventure sports coverage. Users also get access to telemedicine services provided by Teladoc, along with other benefits such as live location sharing, customized emergency information, and a worldwide directory of hospitals and doctors.

The startup lists Tokio Marine HCC and IMG as partners.
