Case Study

Nathan is looking to go bungee jumping in New Zealand. When looking at which insurance was best for his trip, he came across the Cover-More Travel Insurance. Not only could this insure him for his activities, but he also got a free Travel Money Oz World Currency Card and a Global Sim.

Not being the organised individual, Nathan always left it last minute to convert his AUD before his trips, but this seemed really easy and great value.

Nathan applied in his nearest Flight Centre Travel Group store before his trip, and got both the insurance and Travel Card. He loaded his Currency Card with sufficient NZD before departing Australia, knowing he could view, manage and reload all of his funds online – handy if he fancied a skydive as well!
