Cover-More announces CFAR travel insurance cover
Cover-More, Australia’s leading travel insurance and medical assistance provider, today announced major new benefits in their agency travel insurance policies, including cancel-for-any-reason (CFAR), which has not previously been available to Australian travellers.
Other new agency benefits announced include:
- cover for cancelled tours due to lack of numbers
- cover for travel delay due to an act of terrorism
- add-on cover for motorcycles and mopeds with greater than 200cc engine capacity
- add-on cover for heli- and off-piste skiing and other more extreme adventure sports
- cover for travel service provider insolvency and
- increased cover on our existing new-for-old luggage benefit.
The customer-focused changes follow Cover-More’s lead last year in removing general exclusions for mental illness, including existing conditions, across all their travel insurance policies in Australia and New Zealand.
Cover-More General Manager, Sales and Marketing, Mike Stein said the new agency benefits take Cover-More travel insurance to another level and Australian travellers are the real winners.
“We’ve launched two new umbrella policies, Comprehensive Care and Essentials Care, at different price points and within both, travellers have the opportunity to tailor their exact cover to themselves, where they are heading and what they want to do on their trip.
“We’re continually listening to the feedback from Australian travellers and we know they are looking for ways to personalise their insurance cover so it fits with how they travel.
“And by giving travel consultants a product that reflects the evolving needs of travellers we anticipate they will find it easier to convert their customers so that more Australian travellers travel with the protection insurance provides.”
The new policies also provide customers with Virgin Velocity points for every dollar spent.
Comprehensive Care and Essentials Care policies are available from today at travel agencies and networks across Australia.
