Users will be able to access modular, tailor-made products, flexed to their needs, and can make a claim or access customer support. All policies can be paid for with a Papara account or credit card and offer an additional cashback of up to 5%, providing greater affordability.

This is the first expansion of Papara’s product suite outside of its core banking and money management products since launching six years ago. It marks the next step in Papara’s mission to become one of Europe’s leading financial SuperApps, providing users with all the accessible and affordable financial services they need in one place.

For businesses, Papara also facilitates mass-payment, providing a corporate card that can be tailored to enable varying spending patterns and a secure check-out option for merchants.
