We recommend you get covered as soon as you book your trip! Did you know that 30% of travel insurance claims are made before the travelling even starts?
It’s crucial that you take out cover as soon as you make your first deposit. If you don’t, you won’t be covered for unforeseen circumstances before you go, which means you may lose all your deposits and payments already made towards your trip.
Travel insurance isn’t just for when the worst happens – one out of every eight people who take out cover make a claim. And that means you need to be with a company you can trust to help guide you through the process.
World Travellers recommends our insurance partner Cover-More, who are part of one of the world’s most respected travel insurance groups. This group, founded by Kiwis in 1986, provides travel insurance for around one million travellers each year and works out of New Zealand, Australia and the UK. World Travellers has a great track record of working alongside Cover-More, so you can be sure that you’re in excellent hands should the unexpected occur.
Below, you can see examples of the types of incidents and mishaps that Cover-More has managed in the past, as well as details of who is best suited to their Options and Essentials policies. Can you afford not to take out travel insurance? Contact us today for a further details.
RECENT CLAIMS STORY
Where: Wellington (New Zealand) Total Claim: $1,500.00
Barry and Noeline planned to take their daughter, Ngaire, on a trip to Australia for the upcoming school holidays.
Luckily, they purchased their travel insurance policy at the same time they booked their flights.
The family were in good health. However, a few days before they departed, Ngaire was diagnosed with whooping cough. Barry and Noeline were advised by the doctor that not only is Ngaire unfit to travel; but the whooping cough is highly contagious and can possibly infect the other passengers on their flights.
Ngaire’s illness resulted in the family cancelling their flights to Australia.
The family’s non-refundable portion of their prepaid flights to, from and within Australia.
