Who tops the list of Australia’s Best Travel Insurers?

With the winter holiday season approaching, Australians are being urged to look beyond their travel agent or airline to buy travel insurance following the announcement of this year’s winners for Best Value Travel Insurance in the Mozo Experts Choice Travel Insurance Awards.

In a comparison of 159 travel insurance policies from 62 providers, Mozo identified the country’s lowest cost travel insurers for singles, families and seniors looking at Basic Cover, Comprehensive Cover and Multi Trip Cover.

For a family of four travelling overseas on a comprehensive policy, the Mozo Experts Choice Award winners were 56% cheaper than the average price of other providers for the same level of cover.

“Anyone heading overseas should take the time, not only to find the most suitable cover, but to shop around and weigh up the prices side by side,” said Mozo Director, Kirsty Lamont.

“The cheapest comprehensive policy for a family heading overseas was $127 and went right up to $348 - that’s more than double the price for the same level of cover,” she said.

InsureandGo took out the title for Travel Insurer of the Year after impressively winning an Experts Choice Award in all five award categories - Best Value Basic Cover, Best Value Comprehensive Cover, Best Value Multi Trip Cover, Best Value Seniors Basic Cover and Best Value Seniors Comprehensive Cover. Other insurers that won multiple awards include Virgin Money, Woolworths, FastCover and 1300 Travel Insurance.
