image010Recently Mozo Australia’s leading travel insurance comparison web site announced Australia’s Best Value Travel Insurers as part of Mozo’s annual Experts Choice Travel Insurance Awards.

I spoke with Mozo’s Caroline Thomas and she told me that Mozo.com.au, looked at an amazing 159 policies from 62 providers and also amazingly found that Aussie travellers could be paying as much as 300% more for travel insurance than they needed to.

She told me that anyone heading overseas should take the time, not only to find the most suitable cover, but to shop around and weigh up prices side by side, with the cheapest comprehensive policy for a family heading to the US was $124, but went right up to $504, triple the price for the same level of cover.

Insure and Go took out Travel Insurer of the Year based on it winning an Award in all five categories, with other big winners, taking home two Awards each, including FastCover, Virgin, Woolworths and 1300 Travel Insurance – check out the chart below and please note none of the big insurers are there – I wonder why?
