Getsafe is a fully digital insurance company that helps people cover themselves and their universe simply from their smartphone. Using technology and machine learning, the company offers digital insurance products in all lines of business – property, health and life. The Getsafe app is available to customers 24/7 and 365 days a year, allowing them to file claims or change their coverage in real time.
To ensure a 24/7 service, Getsafe has created Carla, a chatbot that is is available for your enquiries whenever and wherever you need it. And if you need to file a claim, it will guide you through the process question by question. What's more, the company understands that life does not always run at the same pace, and so they allow you the opportunity to extend, cancel, buy, and change your coverage within seconds, all via the Getsafe app.
