Cover-More announces partnership with Express Travel Group

October 9, 2018 Business News No Comments Email Email

Leading travel insurance provider, Cover-More, and Express Travel Group (ETG), the largest independent travel agency network in Australia, today announced a new five-year partnership agreement. The partnership will see Cover-More provide travel insurance policies that include cover for cancel-for-any-reason (CFAR), terrorism, and mental illness, as well as other unique benefits, to more travelling Australians.

The partnership launched on 1 October 2018 and positions Cover-More as one of ETG’s preferred travel insurance providers. Cover-More policies will be sold across ETG’s 700-plus agencies nationally.

Cover-More’s Executive General Manager, Sales & Distribution (APAC), Michael Stein said: “Our team is thrilled to announce our partnership with the ETG network nationally. It’s recognition of our ongoing commitment to providing an outstanding travel insurance and medical assistance product for travel agents to offer to their customers.”

“Our growing team of more than 30 people who are wholly dedicated to servicing our retail partners also reflects our commitment to the industry. We look forward to working with agents across the ETG network.”

Ari Magoutis, Executive General Manager, Express Travel Group said: “As ETG has grown and evolved so has the demand for innovative product and technology. 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 travel insurance partners within ETG.”

Michael Stein continued: “We recently launched new agency travel insurance policies which feature many industry-first benefits, including CFAR 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.”

In an Australian-first, Cover-More launched CFAR cover with their new agency policies, Comprehensive Care and Essentials Care, in April this year. The new policies allow travellers to tailor their cover to their individual circumstances, their destination, and how they like to travel. The policies were developed in response to Australian travellers looking for ways to personalise their cover.

Cover-More will be attending ETG’s annual conference in Shanghai in November 2018 to celebrate the partnership and engage agents about their policy benefits.
