The travel insurance company kicking goals

The travel insurance company kicking goals

Never heard of Cover-More?

Well, they’re the largest travel insurance provider in Australia, so you damn well should have.

They’re also a finalist for the inaugural Australian Travel Awards! They’re on the shortlist in the Travel Insurance Provider of the Year category – and for good reason.

You can still nab yourself some last-minute tickets to the event, BTW, so grab them here to see if Cover-More wins in person.

The travel insurance company has been committed to evolving the changing consumer and travel landscape for years – and after being acquired by Zurich Insurance Group in April last year, expanded to 22 countries across five continents. Pretty damn impressive, right?

They’ve experienced astronomical growth in Australia, and a big part of their business model is supporting their Aussie channel with digital solutions, marketing assistance and dedicated business managers.

In fact, over the last year, Cover-More has provided travel insurance to more than nine million people around the world, and helped over 40,000 customers with emergency assistance – including 400 medical evacuations.

Plus, their medical assistance team is at the heart of who Cover-More is. They’re a team of 280 doctors, registered nurses, psychologists, case managers and support professionals who operate seven days a week, 24 hours a day, responding people who are sick, injured or traumatised.

Within their premium agency products, Cover-More also provides coverage for mental health, for both first onset mental health conditions, and since December 2017, cover for pre-existing mental health conditions – unlike a lot of other travel insurance companies.

But that’s not all they cover: other unique features and cover benefits include the ability for you to cancel your trip for any reason and claim prepaid costs back, additional expenses due to missed flight connections and cover if you have to rearrange or cancel your trip because of the insolvency of a travel service provider. Plus, there’s even more cancellation and amendment tiers for uber-personal, super-tailored cover – which you’ll come back for time and time again (trust us).

Because even though they’re an industry leader, Cover-More has strived to go against the grain, providing cover and benefit options that challenge the traditional insurance model. How many other insurers would let you cancel at any time and claim back all non-refundable payments?

They also care about their customers. Cover-More was the only travel insurance provider in the world to charter an aircraft to bring their customers home after earthquakes in Nepal, and after one of their customers was reported missing after the London Bridge terror attacks, Cover-More flew their family across the world. Yep, seriously. And without batting an eye.

It’s pretty easy to see why they’ve been shortlisted for an Australian Travel Award!

But it’s not only their customers Cover-More supports – it’s the environment too. They actively commit to sustainable and ethical travel through educational roadshows, and have introduced an e-PDS to reduce their carbon footprint.

So what are you waiting for? Check out Cover-More Travel Insurance now!
