The turnover of the company has jumped from just over €15 million to just under €19 million. The innovative company has always managed to grow in double digits since its inception in October 2003.

All operations within the company are currently handled from their Dublin office and expansion into new areas, including home and motor, will require staff across numerous departments including call centre customer services, IT and management. 

Originally focused on travel insurance, the company has expanded into other areas including, most recently, pet insurance and innovative gadget insurance, and plan to begin offering home and motor insurance this year with unique benefits and cover not currently available in the Irish market.

The company is also planning an assault on the health insurance market in the coming months. 

Blue Insurances is currently operating in the Irish, UK and Australian markets. The company is also preparing to launch in the Indian travel insurance market with Multitrip through underwriters TataAIG and are also eyeing up the US market following the acquisition of domain Gadgetinsurance.com late last year.

Ciaran Mulligan and Rowan Devereux, founders of Blue Insurances, recently won the Irish Travel Industry Entrepreneur of the Year award. The company will be celebrating its tenth birthday later this year.

Joint Managing Director Ciaran Mulligan said: “We are committed to delivering excellent quality both in terms of the products we offer and the service we provide to all of our customers in the Irish and UK markets and are delighted to be strengthening our team in both management and throughout the business. We are also looking forward to international expansion in new emerging markets.”
