StudentRoomStay and Crisis Cover team up to keep international students safe and sound

19/06/2020

Today, geolocation tracking, protection and evacuation service provider Crisis Cover and global student accommodation provider, StudentRoomStay (SRS) announced a new partnership to provide students with a safe landing in a new country.

Covering gaps in traditional international student health products, the partnership gives all international students automatic access to Crisis Cover’s Student Parachute membership through the StudentRoomStay platform.

Student Parachute is a tech-friendly membership that protects international students when the unexpected strikes during their time overseas.

CEO of Crisis Cover, Carole Tokody, said that recent global events have proved the importance of providing international students with the emergency support and assistance they need when the unexpected happens. 

“This integration will not only provide students with a solid foundation for safety and success, it will also allow their families to have peace of mind no matter where their loved one chooses to study," she said.

“Student Parachute covers the risks that no student or family member wants to consider and delivers real-time emergency response services around the world.”

Adam Lee, CEO and Co-Founder of SRS, acknowledged that StudentRoomStay is the first global accommodation provider to introduce this type of initiative with such dedication to student safety.

“Both StudentRoomStay and Student Parachute have consistently prioritised an unwavering commitment to the safety and well-being of international students,” said Lee.

“By providing personalized accommodation and real-time emergency response services in one primary location, we allow students to enjoy and focus on their study abroad experience with confidence that we are always looking out for their safety and protection.”'

Tokody said the partnership is a natural extension of both brands who share strong commitment to the safety and wellbeing of students who choose to study overseas.

“While we are living through challenging times, we know that international education will make a resurgence, and when it does, we want students, parents and agents to know that StudentRoomStay will look out for them,” she said.

“This is a membership that will help StudentRoomStay’s students make well-informed travel decisions and focus on their studies, knowing that we are looking out for their safety and security.”

Student Parachute membership will be available to all international students via StudentRoomStay.com and the StudentRoomStay app.

StudentRoomStay.com and the StudentRoomStay app will be available to students worldwide in 2020, starting with an initial launch in the United States. This will quickly be followed by operation launches in Australia, Canada and the rest of the globe.
