Travel Insurance Reviews

Trying to decide which travel insurance company to choose is an important step when planning your holiday. One of the best ways to help you choose the travel insurer for you is by reading past travellers real life experiences.

When it comes to picking the right insurer you want to make sure they’ll be there when things go wrong. Reading travel insurance reviews is one of the best ways to help identify who may be the best company for you.

Why should you read customer reviews?

 

There are numerous travel insurance policies to choose from. Reading customer reviews is one way to find out more about the experiences of travellers who have purchased a policy from the travel insurance company you are considering. For example, you can find out how easy it is to communicate with staff.

Check out our reviews on independent review websites to see how our performance compares and put us to the test!  

What travel insurance review websites to trust

Finding honest reviews may sound like hard work, but there are many websites on the internet which provide a platform for travellers to tell their travel insurance stories. After speaking to your family and friends, search the travel insurance providers you’re considering and you’ll be sure to find many reviews.

Product Review is one site which has collected a vast number of reviews on different insurance companies. You can read them at http://www.productreview.com.au/p/fast-cover-travel-insurance.html

Mozo is another site for customer reviews. Go to http://mozo.com.au/insurance/travel-insurance/fast-cover/Travel-Insurance/4642

Before you buy some things to keep in mind…

1. Do your research
The more reviews you read the better you may understand whether a travel insurance company is the right one for you.

Make sure to read comments rather than just looking at how people have rated a travel insurance company. Traveller’s comments can give insights into the traveller's dealings with the insurer and the nature of their feedback, whether good or bad. Some reviewers may have left a bad review, only to update their review by commenting on their original post.


2. The cheapest is not always the best for you
To reduce the price things have to be taken out. Be sure to check that the policy has the cover you need, not just the lowest price.

Peace of mind for senior travellers

As a senior traveller Fast Cover gave me peace of mind. Staff were most helpful & I was agreeably surprised at reasonable premium. I have already & will continue to recommend this product.

10/10 - Averil (Review published on Mozo)

 

Very good customer service

Chose the wrong check box. Contacted Sally at Fast Cover and she was very helpful. In fact I was given a $30 refund. I have already given details to one of my workmates.

10/10 - Theo (Review published on Compare Travel Insurance)

 

I had to make a very large claim ($12,000USD) and fast cover were brilliant. Right from when I was admitted to hospital they were friendly, reassuring - and even had stern words to an unhelpful nurse for me! My claim was paid in full, they were great to deal with, really genuinely caring and funny!

★★★★★ - AJ (Review published on Google Plus)

 

I have always found your staff to be very helpful. Fast Cover is also very competitive. I had to change dates on one of the policies and was able to do so with no trouble.
