Koala in summary

The founders Ugo, Léo and Antony

Founded in 2018, Koala is on a mission to offer peace of mind from the moment travellers book their trips to the minute they return home.

We launched Koala with the innovative Flight Disruption Insurance. As soon as Covid struck, we rapidly launched new solutions to restore travellers’ confidence to book.

We build all our products from scratch, removing one layer of complexity after the other. We thrive in providing insurance with no exclusions, no proof and compensating travellers as soon a disruption occurs.
