Jean: “I will always use Cover-More”

Jean was fulfilling a long-held dream of trekking to Mount Everest Base Camp in Nepal when she injured her ankle. Cover-More came to the rescue by arranging the airlift from Mount Everest to Kathmandu and then after treatment, bringing her back home.

Jules: “All you want is for someone to have your back”

Jules had jetted off to Indonesia for a surfing holiday when she got injured in the waves. Jules had broken her neck in two places so Cover-More stepped in to evacuate her out of a remote area via helicopter. We arranged for Jules to get the care she needed before we could safely bring her back home.

Mark: “From the moment I contacted Cover-More, I didn't have anything else to worry about.”

Mark and Julie decided to go to India to see the Taj Mahal. Julie suffered two spinal compression fractures when the bus she was travelling on drove over a pothole on the way to visit a tiger reserve in India.

Unexplained bleeding in the Cook Islands

"We’ve always travelled with Cover-More travel insurance, but we’ve never had to use it. The service we received in the Cook Islands was an eye opener. It took the stress of the whole ordeal away from my partner Terry, especially as we were told we would be covered if we had to stay longer in Rarotonga. We want to tell as many people as we can about the help we received. Our claim was approved so quickly, I can’t get over how quickly it came through." - Bert Wall

Stroke in the Cook Islands

"With all the help and care that I got, I’ve really dodged a bullet, and I couldn’t ask for anything more. The care from everyone... especially the boys on the plane, they were just marvellous. The medical assistance team rang once a day to check in and make sure we were all right. All they were doing was keeping us informed and it helped so much. With Cover- More and the air ambulance, the keeping in touch was just amazing." - Tom Nesbitt

Dengue Fever in Bali, Indonesia

"When I was in hospital I spoke to Cover-More every day, and because I was in Bali on my own that was so reassuring. Dengue fever is debilitating, so it was awesome that my policy paid for me to stay in Bali for another week after I left hospital and I could recover before going home." - Senka Radonich
