  1. Very comprehensive. Any comparison for up to 6 months travelling in South America?

    Thank you!

  2. We are a relatively new travel insurance provider in the New Zealand market. It would be appreciated if you would kindly advise how we could have our product reviewed and added to your travel insurance comparison / guide.

    – We are very competitively prices
    – Cater for all ages and types of travellers
    – Offer a range of products from Basics to Comprehensive
    – We are underwritten by Certain Underwriters at Lloyd’s

    Best regards
    Natalie

  3. When was this comparison table put together as the pricing seems to be out of date? Perhaps you could add a footnote to make this clear.

    Additionally, what is the process to get another brand included in your comparison? I’d like to include travelinsurance.co.nz
