Bright Skies is their partner, who helped them to scope, develop and launch their blockchain-based travel insurance within 5 months.
DOMCURA underlines its competence as a digital underwriting agent with the new digital luggage insurance product on blockchain basis. The company is one of the first anywhere in Europe with a viable insurance product on the basis of blockchain technology: the digital DOMCURA baggage insurance. It protects against the financial consequences of baggage being destroyed, damaged or lost.
How it works
The insurance is linked to a smartphone app, using the opportunities provided by Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT), firmly established in the banking sector, specifically the blockchain which stores sensitive customer and transaction data unalterably through a complex system of protection in its capacity as a digital trustee. A characteristic which allowed the product developers and IT specialists from DOMCURA to design specific travel insurance protection which guarantees the integrity of all travel information at all times, thereby meeting the increased demands placed on today’s mobility and data protection on terms and conditions which at the same time are fair.
This is pay-on-demand insurance which is flexibly designed to modify the sum insured and the term of the contract (daily cancellation) on an individual basis. Only the days on which the user actually requires the insurance cover are billed. The cover is automatically activated as soon as the user leaves their home zone (radius of 50 km).
While the movement coordinates determined via GPS tracking are being encoded by the smartphone and continuously stored in the blockchain, the insurer has no knowledge of the traveller’s whereabouts. Their privacy remains one hundred percent protected. Only in the event of a claim, will the customer give DOMCURA details of the day’s travel in question in order to reach a settlement.
- Blockchain technology is used productively
- Software defined insurance
- Situational insurance cover, always fully automatic when traveling
- Only the customer is able to share his geo-data
- Ultimate encrypted data protection through keychain technology of the mobile device

- Right of daily cancellation
- The claim report happens through the app
- The customer approves the date of the claim out of blockchain – the DOMCURA AG receives automatically a document with the geo-data from that date
- The customer doesn’t have to prove the journey for the claim report
- The billing takes place after the journey and the customer only pays for the days of actual travelling
- Audit-proof account data out of the blockchain
