At Southern Cross Travel Insurance, we’ve been providing excellent, affordable cover for over 30 years. This year, we’re proud to announce we have won the coveted CANSTAR award for travel insurance in three categories:
- Outstanding value for Travel Insurance - International 2017
- Outstanding value for Travel Insurance - South Pacific Cruise 2017
- Outstanding value for Travel Insurance - Trans-Tasman 2017
CANSTAR is an independent consumer research and ratings organisation helping New Zealanders find great quality products and services. We’re honoured that this industry-leading organisation has rated Southern Cross Travel Insurance as the best value out of 31 providers!
Outstanding value for Travel Insurance - International 2017
As winners of the Outstanding value for Travel Insurance - International 2017 award, CANSTAR found that our TravelCare policy made us the best value provider in the industry.
What does outstanding value mean to us? It means covering*:
- Unlimited medical and evacuation expenses, with no excess for medical claims
- Valuables that are stolen or damaged
- Cancellation fees and lost deposits from flights and pre-booked activities
- Rental car excess if you have an accident
- Damaged or lost luggage
It means a genuine and supportive claims team, who have paid 98% of TravelCare claims in the 2016/2017 financial year. But most of all, outstanding value means providing our travellers with the peace of mind knowing they’re covered when they are overseas.
Outstanding value for Travel Insurance - South Pacific Cruise 2017
The CANSTAR Outstanding value for Travel Insurance - South Pacific Cruise 2017 award celebrates the provider offering the best value policy for the unique requirements of cruising holidays. According to CANSTAR, there were 20% more cruises booked in 2016 than 2015, and the vast majority of these were to the South Pacific.
They also stressed the importance of “packing your insurance before you hit the high seas.” You may not be flying between cities or even leaving the ship, but cruises pose their own dangers that travellers need to protect themselves against.
The Southern Cross Travel Insurance TravelCare policy achieved a five-star CANSTAR rating for the cruise category, with travellers receiving the same comprehensive benefits at no extra cost. Unlike several other providers, selecting cruise on your quote does not increase the cost of your policy.
Outstanding value for Travel Insurance - Trans-Tasman 2017
The competitive Trans-Tasman Travel Insurance category analyses the quality of cover that Kiwis receive when visiting Australia. We understand that with almost 1.4 million New Zealanders visiting Australia each year, it’s essential to provide comprehensive cover at an affordable price. If you’re taking a solo journey to Australia for two days or less, you may even be eligible to receive our full TravelCare cover from just $15.
We love to help New Zealanders get the most from their Aussie holiday, which is why we regularly publish helpful articles on our Travel Advice blog. If you’re visiting Australia, you may like to read:
