We are delighted to announce that Southern Cross Travel Insurance (SCTI) has won the CANSTAR Travel Insurance Award for Outstanding Value in International Travel Insurance for 2015. This marks the 7th consecutive year we have achieved this award.

SCTI stood out for its highly competitive premiums, the ability to claim online, and benefits including:

  • Up to $30,000 travel delay
  • Unlimited cover for overseas medical and dental
  • Rental vehicle excess of $5,000 per journey

Commenting on the win, a spokesperson at SCTI says: “The CANSTAR Awards are hugely competitive and we are thrilled our cover has come out on top again this year. Not only do we believe our cover is the most comprehensive, we are proud to be recognised by CANSTAR for our service.

“We’ve built our business based on integrity and what consumers want and need, be that a competitive price or fast and efficient quality service. Most important of all, our customers can relax on holiday knowing they are covered; it is always the unexpected that catches you out whilst travelling and we help safeguard against this.”

Commenting on the awards, CANSTAR Finance Editor and Commentator, Justine Davis says: “Our Travel Insurance Awards have some of the toughest entry criteria in the industry. We were once again impressed by the overall value of SCTI’s cover and service. Travellers don’t realise the value of the insurance until they have to claim; we congratulate SCTI on retaining this award yet again.”

Who is eligible?

The highly competitive CANSTAR Awards compared over 229 domestic and international travel insurance products, from 73 institutions, looking into 13,950 quotes.

To be eligible for the awards, providers had to meet minimum requirements, such as having a 24-hour helpline, the ability to extend cover while travelling, and $10 million plus family overseas medical and hospital cover internationally.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers for their continued loyalty.
