Southern Cross Travel Insurance (SCTI) received two prestigious awards from Canstar: Outstanding Value – International Travel Insurance Award and the Outstanding Value – Seniors’ Travel Insurance Award, marking SCTI's sixth consecutive win in the international travel category and its second in the seniors' category.

SCTI CEO Jo McCauley attributed the awards to the company's dedication to offering superior coverage and service to a wide range of travellers. McCauley also acknowledged the efforts of the SCTI team in providing high-quality travel insurance solutions in a year that continued to pose challenges.

“In January this year, the travel industry in New Zealand had just come out of nearly three years of devastation following the COVID-19 travel restrictions. Immediately we were then faced with the weather events in Auckland and Hawke’s Bay, which caused airports to close, impacting those heading overseas. It has been fantastic to see travel stabilise in the last six months, and we’ve been busy growing our team to support the increasing demand,” McCauley said.

McCauley also emphasised SCTI’s commitment to offering coverage that caters to the diverse needs of travellers, aiming to provide peace of mind with reliable and comprehensive insurance options.

SCTI has been consistently acknowledged as a leader in travel insurance, receiving accolades for quality and customer satisfaction, including Reader’s Digest Quality Service and Trusted Brands awards. These recent recognitions from Canstar further establish SCTI's reputation as a dependable insurance provider.

Canstar New Zealand spokesperson Irene Chapple commented on the renewed interest in travel among New Zealanders, noting a trend towards cautiousness and a demand for value in insurance purchases. Chapple commended SCTI for its high coverage levels at competitive prices, highlighting the company’s success in delivering quality products to customers.

“Canstar is always looking for the best value offers for consumers, and our Outstanding Value Travel Insurance Awards recognise the providers that deliver the most extensive features, for the best value. Arranging any sort of travel can be hectic at the best of times and we hope these awards go some way to helping consumers with their decisions,” Chapple said.
