Very affordable, Fantastic customer service

published

Taken out cover insurance for my upcoming campervan trip to the North of WA. The policy is simple and of such great value, I felt the need to double check on the details.
From the outset, Des was always there to answer all my questions very promptly, and without fuss.
Highly recommended !

Easiest company to deal with

published

We have had to chop and change dates due to border closures and Des replies promptly, wants to issue a refund if there was a small difference (we have said dont worry about the refund due to all the mucking around has had to do).

NOTHING WAS TOO MUCH TROUBLE

published

I paid for cover in January and due to Covid could not go - forgot to cancel and e-mailed Tripcover with new dates and Des responded in no time with the change of dates done and no charge.
He would have been within his rights to charge me again due to late cancellation - I have used Tripcover a number of times and service always polite, professional and flexible.

Fantastic customer support without any hassles

published

We had to cancel our policy, due to lockdown in Victoria, on the day it was due to start. Contacted Tripcover who cancelled the policy and refunded our money very quickly. Now lockdown is over we are travelling to Queensland in the next couple of days and have taken out another policy with Tripcover. We will certainly be insuring with Tripcover on any trips in the future.

Great Product and the Best Rates

published

I have used Tripcover a number of times and have found them very good. Very easy to sign up for online, they are backed by Allianz so is certainly reputable, and they seem to have the lowest rates around. Have not had to claim as yet, thankfully, but have cancelled insurance when our plans changed and the money was returned promptly. Definitely recommend.

Excess cover with no excess worries and 5 star service

published

After searching for excess cover to bridge the gap between the standard cover provided by the rental company and their own inflated policies, I found Tripcover, their amazing service and simple to use website. I am hoping that I never have to make a claim but knowing that their service is underwritten by a global company in Allianz is very reassuring. Des went the extra mile to ensure my cover was in place - even replying on Christmas Day !!! - Champion levels of customer care.

Great Customer Support

published

I kept getting an error message when buying a rental car excess policy and I had assumed that the payment was not going through. I had intended following up with the company, however before I could do that Des from Tripcover contacted me and helped me sort it out. Des also let me know that payments had gone through and that he had arranged a refund.

Best rates for rental car insurance

published

I always use Tripcover rental car insurance whenever I book a rental car in New Zealand. Their insurance rates are the best in the market and significantly less than rental companies' rates. Whenever I have contacted them with a query they have been prompt to respond.

Fast response!

published

During Covid-19, Trip Cover made it so easy to make a change at the last minute with our policy as our trip was cancelled due to a border closure, so we didn't lose any of our holiday money. We've used them for many years (much cheaper excess reduction car insurance than with a hire company). Thanks Trip Cover!

Hassle free, cheap, 3rd party auto insurance

published

I've used Tripcover's 3rd party rental car insurance a few times now and it's just so easy. One time I had to lodge a claim and it was my first time ever making an insurance claim so I was bit unsure how hard it would be, but far out it was so easy! I filled out a form explaining the incident and damage (100% my fault), attached the rental documents, and had a full refund of my out-of-pocket expenses (minus an administrative $50 or so that the rental company charged me) within a couple of weeks. Highly recommended.

If the rental company policy I choose does not cover single vehicle accident/ roll over do you cover the cost of all repairs or only the excess coverage I choose through you?
