Travel insurance provider Cover-More has announced a new partnership with independent Australia-based travel agency network Express Travel Group (ETG). Through the five-year partnership, Cover-More will act as a preferred travel insurance provider for ETG customers; the provider’s policies will now be sold at each of ETG’s 700-plus agencies across Australia.
“As ETG has grown and evolved, so has the demand for innovative product and technology,” said Ari Magoutis, Executive General Manager of ETG. “The team at Cover-More have certainly met this brief, as well as their commitment to servicing our members’ requirements and expectations. We welcome Cover-More as one of our preferred insurance partners.”
Michael Stein, Executive General Manager of Sales and Distribution for the APAC Region at Cover-More, said that the insurer was ‘thrilled’ to announce the partnership: “We recently launched new agency travel insurance policies which feature many industry-first benefits, including cancel-for-any-reason cover. Our policies also offer cover for new and existing mental illnesses, cancelled tours due to numbers, travel delay due to terrorism, new for old luggage, heli-and off-piste skiing and new adventure sports. We’re committed to providing agents with a product that travellers can’t find without planning their holidays through their travel agent.”
