The SCTI difference

Southern Cross Travel Insurance (SCTI) saves you money by providing travel insurance direct to you. We are the underwriter and insurer.

We cut out the middleman, which means you pay no travel agency or sales commission and have more money to spend on your holiday.

Plus, if you have to make a claim, you don't have to wait for the underwriter to approve and issue payment - we take care of it all. Once your claim has been accepted, we pay you within three business days.

Free cover for kids!

Dependent children aged 17 years or under are automatically covered for free if you list them on your policy when you purchase travel insurance. This applies to parents, legal guardians and grandparents!
