Generali Vitality is now also available in Austria. The programme motivates members to live a healthier life by offering rewards in the form of bonuses and reductions along the way to a healthier life. It gives Austrians the ability to improve their health via short-term achievable goals, where every step counts. Attractive companies – such as Adidas, Expedia, Amazon and Injoy – were selected as Generali Vitality partners. Generali Vitality was presented to the sales force on 28 August in Salzburg who has been using the programme since then.
Austria provides a huge market potential for Generali Vitality: like in other European countries, the market of health-conscious and fitness-oriented customers is steadily growing. The most common chronic diseases that are caused by poor lifestyle choices contribute to 72% of deaths in Austria.
Generali Vitality helps people to make the right health choices: following a healthier diet, doing regular exercises and not smoking can result in essential improvements in health outcomes.
Generali Vitality has already gained great success in Germany and France and will be available in other countries in the future.

Based on the science of behavioural economics, Generali Vitality customers are supported in achieving their personal health and fitness objectives through a three step approach: know your health, improve your health and enjoy rewards. The programme is open to all new customers, regardless of their state of health, and they decide which data they will provide to mark progress towards their individual goals. The rewards and discounts have been designed to encourage ‘healthy choices’ and are offered through a wide variety of Generali Vitality partners, including: Adidas, Fitness First, Garmin and Weight Watchers. It is not only fitness and exercise that are encouraged, but also other healthy activities such as awareness of medical check-ups, stopping smoking and maintaining a good diet.
