Company brief

Travel insurance provider Cover-More has launched Cancel-For-Any-Reason (CFAR) cover, making it available to New Zealand travellers for the first time. It is part of Cover-More’s new product YourCover, which includes benefits such as cover for heli and off-piste skiing, mopeds and motorcycles with greater than 200cc engine capacity, and many more benefits.

“We are thrilled to be launching our CFAR cover to Kiwi travellers, the first cover of its kind in New Zealand. Our CFAR cover enables our customers to cancel their travel plans for any reason at all. I’m sure CFAR will bring peace of mind to the many New Zealanders planning their 2019 holidays,” said Cover-More New Zealand CEO Bruce Morrison. “We are launching YourCover in response to Kiwi travellers seeking travel insurance they can tailor to their individual needs and travel plans. YourCover offers travellers comprehensive travel insurance and emergency assistance, as well as optional benefits depending on where they are travelling to and what they will be doing. An adventure skier heading to the US ski fields might take out our cover for heli and off-piste skiing, while someone flying to Fiji might add our CFAR cover so they have complete freedom to cancel their trip if their plans change – for example due to the Zika virus, a relationship breakup or any other reason not normally covered by travel insurance.”

Morrison also said that the benefits available to the travellers through YourCover reflect the effort the team has put into listening to the evolving needs of Kiwi travellers and developing policies that fit with how they like to travel. “With access to a new product like YourCover we anticipate more New Zealanders will travel with the protection that travel insurance provides,” he said.
