    Not all Travel Insurances are the same
    ! In fact the same underwriter can issue different policies that may not protect you properly!
  • Most Travel insurances do not afford you any protection for your Frequent Flyer tickets or bookings made. Our recommended policy does.
  • Some are offerred supposedly FREE To Credit Cardmembers-but afford little protection with a lack of english speaking staff based in Australia.
  • Some debit you an Excess (up to $200) per individual claim-not per Total claim.
  • Most do not give you any financial compensation if an Airline, Cruise, Tour Company or Car rental collapse. Our recommended policy does.
  • Some do not include repatriation of family expenses to get you back home in case of an emergency.
  • Some do not give you high limits of coverage in case of Medical evacuation or emergency funds.
  • Some do not protect you against Car excess in case of a claim.
  • Most policies have restrictive Age and/or pre-existing Medical condition rules.
  • Some do not extend Travel Agency assistance in case of need.

This POLICY issued here via QBE TRAVEL INSURANCE is fully accredited and is specifically created and designed for "travellers"  and affords you protection in case of collapse of Airlines, Cruise, Car rental or Tour Companies !

Examples of Travel Insurance advice and stories......

 
Frequent Flyer Tickets useless and no connections possible
QANTAS cancels a Frequent Flyer Flight from Sydney to Singapore that was to connect to another Frequent Flyer flight from Singapore to London. Clients must reach London on the next day to connect with a Trafalgar Tour. Flights are full and there is no way that QANTAS will allow boarding onto another Airline to allow a connection. Client has to purchase a new retail Airticket (with assistance of FFC staff) who book new flights to allow a seamless connection into London to connect with Tour. Travel insurance claim is made to obtain monetary refund of Frequent Flyer tickets already secured to compensate for new retail tickets issued. Approximately 70% of new retail Tickets are prepaid by Travel insurance policy payout. Clients get to arrive into London on time, perform transfer and do Tour. Both the Travel insurance policy , Frequent Flyer tickets and new airtickets all obtained via FFC site with staff assistance throughout.

 

TRAVEL INSURANCE ON A SUNDAY ??

Another true story from the battlefields of Travel !

Recently a client who is a regular Frequent Flyer had to depart on a paid ticket to Amsterdam to attend a family issue.

He linked to this site, went to LINKS , went to the QANTAS LINK (via a secured Travel Agency site), grabbed a seat on QF and BA and had an E lectronic Ticket issued. He forgot Travel Insurance, so with nobody "open for business" at 07.00am on Sunday , he used his Frequent Flyer Member status, secured Travel Insurance online and saved 15% in the process.

He travelled on Sunday, had Electronic Ticket issued via our referred link and protected himself with Travel Insurance all within a few hours.

Suffice to say that we have acheived another happy (and savy!) traveller.

PS: He did  forgot to place his FF number onto the booking he made-but our staff fixed that up for him on Monday with guaranteed retrospective credit of flights flown , as promised bu FREQUENT FLYER CLUB in our GUARANTEE POLICY.
