We have found the “Cancel for any reason” to be quite popular. Cancel for any reason cover is an optional extra in case you need to cancel because of something not usually covered by the policy. For more information use the box below (see Step 2) or contact us and we’ll send you a copy of the Product Disclosure Statement.
Why would you want to have travel insurance?
There are two main reasons: The first one is to get cover for overseas medical expenses or on-costs, which can be devastatingly high.
The second reason is to have protection in case you have to cancel your trip, your luggage gets lost, for rental car insurance excess or for about another 10+ events.
Hence we recommend travel insurance so that you can rest assured that when the unexpected happens, you will have a form of protection in place.

What do Cover-More offer?
Travel Insurance options
A basic insurance policy that can cover you for overseas medical and cancellation costs.
For only a little more you get increased policy benefits including:
There is also the option to include "cancellation for any reason" cover.
This is for policies for Australian residents travelling overseas.
If you plan to take more than one holiday a year, you can take out annual multi-trip cover which could work out to be substantially cheaper than taking out travel insurance each time you travel. Plus, you have the benefit of going through the process only once a year and then you have cover available, up to the duration you've selected for 365 days from when you choose your start date, as long as your destination is more than 250km from your home.
This can be a great way to go if you travel a lot for work or have your own company. In the event of a payout your company will receive the payout. The business policy is an annual policy and you are also covered for up to 6 weeks of leisure travel per year on this policy (If you are likely to travel for leisure for more than 6 weeks then the leisure annual multi-trip is an option).
Travelbay is awesome. I rang up to enquire about travel insurance and the staff were so friendly and efficient that I ended up purchasing it right then and there and for less than I was quoted by the travel agents I had booked my flights with. It was easy to feel that this is a company where people come first. This is something I always look for and rarely find as many companies seem to be good at saying this, but it is not what I have felt being delivered.
