Zurich to offer e-scooter insurance at the point of sale

Zurich Seguros and MediaMarkt have teamed up to provide coverage for civil liability arising from the use of scooters and electric bicycles. MediaMarkt, a German retailer selling consumer electronics, introduced electric scooters in Spain in May 2018. And last year, it experienced a 30% growth in e-scooter sales compared to the previous year.

“This alliance with MediaMarkt combines the strengths of both companies, their experience in the distribution of consumer electronics and our purpose in offering the best protection and security to people and their lifestyles. We are transforming the insurance sector to get closer and closer to customer needs, and jointly offer complete and personalized solutions with our distributors.” – Ana Baranda, Head of Alliances at Zurich Seguros.

“We are very proud to offer, together with Zurich, this liability insurance for electric scooters. This alliance represents another step in our strategy as it allows us to offer our clients a complete solution. We no longer only sell the product, but we make the entire range of solutions around it available to customers: maintenance services, set-up, repairs and insurance.” – Antonio Arribas, Head of Business Development at MediaMarkt Iberia.
