OneBefore to deliver sustainable travel insurance policy with Freedom Insurance Services

26th March 2024

LONDON, 26 March 2024: OneBefore, the MGA specialising in consumer insurance with a focus on accident, absence, health, and travel insurance, today announced the launch of their ‘One Tree Travel’ policy, which will be distributed exclusively by Freedom Insurance Services.

The product is designed to provide a sustainable insurance solution tailored for environmentally mindful leisure travellers. In collaboration with Ecologi, a leading environmental organisation, every policy sold will contribute to planting at least one tree to support reforestation endeavours and biodiversity preservation. Additionally, through our collaboration with Ecologi, Freedom Insurance Services will contribute to carbon avoidance and removal initiatives such as solar panel installations and the distribution of cleaner cookstoves in the developing world.

Vered Lobel, CEO at OneBefore, said: “One Tree Travel is a unique product. It will not only protect buyers with the highest standard of travel cover, but also contribute to meaningful change through reforestation for a more sustainable future. Working with the team at Freedom Insurance Services, we have moved from initial meetings to a live product on sale in just over three months. I am delighted to see this product go live and provide purposeful cover to conscientious travellers.”

Roland Gilliam, Director at Freedom Insurance Services said: “Our partnership with OneBefore has enabled the product to be designed and delivered in a matter of weeks, rapidly providing the market with a unique insurance product, designed with sustainability at its core and marks the beginning of our journey towards B Corp Certification. In addition to the funding of tree planting with each policy sold, we are also developing partnerships with charities and local community groups that support social causes such as adult education and access to sports facilities.”

Friederike Smith, Account Executive at Ecologi, added, “We’re excited to be working with One Tree Travel as their tree planting partner. One Tree Travel is a great example of an organisation where sustainability is a core part of the business from day one. We’re looking forward to seeing your forest grow!”
