ACE Group, a multinational multiline P&C insurer, has launched a mobile app that offers travel assistance services to international casualty insureds doing business overseas.

The app is intended to help users access information to plan for international travel. Users can create an itinerary and, based on the user’s GPS location and itinerary, receive real-time alerts, risk management mitigation tips and tools to manage medical incidents. It now is available through ACE’s Executive Assistance Services to eligible international travelers, including employees, volunteers and students covered through ACE International Advantage, the company said.
