About us

Travel Insurance Cover Pty Ltd (ABN 88 605 310 709) has been online since 2008, and over this time has assisted tens of thousands of Australians to travel safely.

Travel Insurance Cover is an authorised distributor of QBE Travel Insurance. When we launched our first website in 2008, we initially distributed an insurance product called Toursafe which at the time was underwritten by QBE. Toursafe Travel Insurance was acquired by QBE in 2009 and ultimately rebranded as QBE Travel Insurance, the product that we now distribute.

Travel Insurance Cover is incorporated in Australia, and is proudly Australian owned and operated.

Travel has become easier

Travel has changed significantly over the last 20 years with the gradual fall in the cost of international flights and the advent of the Internet. Australia is a long way from the rest of the world (from most of the rest of the world, anyway), and these factors have enabled Australians to travel more often - and with more independence.

In particular, the Internet has empowered Australians to research and make their own travel arrangements online. The rise and rise of websites like Webjet, AirBNB and TripAdvisor have fundamentally changed the way we travel - from comparing the cost of flights and hotels to getting recommendations from other travellers.

Travel Insurance Cover assists travellers who want to also arrange their own travel insurance. We are an online company, and only distribute policies over the Internet and over the phone. By doing so, we are able to avoid fixed costs like retail space, and are able to distribute policies more cost-effectively, resulting in lower premiums for travellers.

We are available to assist

By arranging insurance online through Travel Insurance Cover, travellers benefit from a 30% premium discount, ensuring cost-effective cover.

All policies are underwritten by QBE Insurance (Australia) Limited and include emergency assistance through QBE Assist. This means that if something unexpected occurs and you need to claim on your policy, or you need emergency assistance while travelling, you have the comfort and security of the financial strength of QBE.

Travel Insurance Cover is always available and happy to assist with providing quotes or applying for a medical assessment if cover is required for existing medical conditions. We can also assist with policy amendments and extensions (policies can also be amended or extended online through the QBE policyholder login), and we have contacts at QBE if you need any help with submitting a claim.
