Over 30 Years’ Experience

Cover-More has been protecting the travel dreams of Australians travelling domestically and internationally for more than 30 years. Cover-More Group provides travel and rental car excess insurance to 18 million travellers worldwide.


While we have strong relationships around the world to provide global support for our customers, our emergency assistance operations are based in Australia. It’s one of the things about Cover-More we’re proud of here. We don’t outsource our emergency assistance, so when you call you’ll be talking with people who know your details.

Award-Winning Travel Insurance Provider

We're not the only ones who believe in our travel insurance and medical assistance - both our customers and experts do, too. Thanks to our dedication to providing quality products and services, we've received the following awards:

Financial Strength

Cover-More Group was acquired by Zurich Insurance Group in April 2017 and Zurich Australian Insurance Limited became Cover-More’s underwriter in Australia from 1 June 2017.

Zurich is one of the world’s leading multi-line insurers with about 54,000 employees. The group provides property and casualty, and life insurance products and services in more than 210 countries and territories. Zurich’s customers include individuals, small businesses and mid-sized and large companies, as well as multinational corporations.

With Cover-More’s market share of approximately 40%* of the travel insurance business in Australia and the Zurich Insurance Group’s global expertise around the world, it’s a strong position to be in and one we intend to grow further.
