Leading travel insurance provider Cover-More has launched Cancel-For-Any-Reason (CFAR) cover, available to Kiwi travellers for the first time and enabling them to cancel their travel plans for any reason, including relationship break down or change of plans.
Cover-More’s CFAR cover is available as part of their new product, YourCover. YourCover also includes new traveller-focused policy benefits including cover for more extreme adventure sports, heli and off-piste skiing, mopeds and motorcycles with greater than 200cc engine capacity, and many more benefits.
“We are thrilled to be launching our Cancel-For-Any-Reason (CFAR) cover to Kiwi travellers, the first cover of its kind in New Zealand. Our CFAR cover enables our customers to cancel their travel plans for any reason at all. I’m sure CFAR will bring peace of mind to the many New Zealanders planning their 2019 holidays,” Cover-More New Zealand CEO Bruce Morrison says.
“We are launching YourCover in response to Kiwi travellers seeking travel insurance they can tailor to their individual needs and travel plans. YourCover offers travellers comprehensive travel insurance and emergency assistance, as well as optional benefits depending on where they are travelling to and what they will be doing. An adventure skier heading to the USA ski fields might take out our cover for heli and off-piste skiing, while someone flying to Fiji might add our CFAR cover so they have complete freedom to cancel their trip if their plans change – for example due to the Zika virus, a relationship breakup or any other reason not normally covered by travel insurance.”
YourCover’s new traveller-focused benefits follow Cover-More’s lead last year in removing general exclusions for mental illness, including existing conditions, across all their travel insurance policies in New Zealand and Australia.
Mr Morrison added: “The benefits we are making available in YourCover reflect the significant effort our entire team has put into listening to the evolving needs of Kiwi travellers and developing policies that fit with how they like to travel. With access to a new product like YourCover we anticipate more New Zealanders will travel with the protection that travel insurance provides.”
Cover-More’s YourCover policies also offer travellers enhanced cover for multi-night cruises.
YourCover policies are available now from Cover-More’s partner travel agencies, independent travel agents and brokers across New Zealand.
