Australia-based travel insurance and medical assistance provider Cover-More has announced the addition of a number of new benefits for its agency travel insurance policies. These include cancel-for-any-reason coverage, which up until now has not been made available to travellers in Australia.
Among the other benefits added by Cover-More are coverage for tours that have been cancelled due to a lack of numbers; coverage for delays to travel caused by acts of terrorism; add-on cover for motorcycles and mopeds of a certain engine capacity; add-on cover for heli-skiing, off-piste skiing and other adventure activities; cover for the insolvency of a travel service provider; and increased cover for the plans’ existing new-for-old luggage benefit.
According to Mike Stein, General Manager of Cover-More, these new benefits take the travel insurance provided by his company to ‘another level’: “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.”
