1Cover were great when a family member had a problem. They do annual cover, but am not sure how competitive they are.

Which Insurance company is better for multi travel annually?

That's a bit vague for us to give answers most useful to you.

For instance: USA included / not included? Any serious medical issues to be declared? Mostly business / mostly private? Max length of trip? Most policies will have these, but will differ on the pricing of the options.

I use Covermore for my travel; option to include/exclude USA and covers both my business and private trips; has options IIRC of 30, 60 and maybe 75 day journeys. Pre exisiting conditions need to be declared.

I've made one claim (computer stolen) and it was processed pretty straight-forwardly.

I have used both 1Cover and Travel Insurance Direct over the past few years, for multi travel annual, often with a promo code. Price varies each year and with age, so pays to check ,from memory coverage was similar. Have not claimed with either so cannot comment on claims performance.

I have been with QBE a few years now. Didn't do it for QFF points but because they are much cheaper than other policies.

Slightly concerning their claims process is slow.

Based on a fantastic claims experience I always recommend TID.

Interesting - looking to renew annual policy.

TID with 10% discount $308
Columbus with 20% discount $408 (Basic - Would have been $268, but I had elevated cholesterol "pre existing").
QBE via Qantas $545 (get 1k QFF points)

All are very similar, although QBE and TID have unlimited medical cover (Columbus $12½M) .

Is that family pricing? I need to renew our annual - family with 10% discount = $377.10

Bare bone policy with no lowering of excess or uplift with additional things like snow sports/hire car/extra cover.

Single - it was not that long ago when an accompanying family member would be included at no additional cost.

Is that for any particular company?
I presume it's QBE as they are listed as an E/B partner. (http://www.entertainmentmedia.com.au/flickbook/melbourne/index.html#/550/)

Cheers.

Not a bad price considering the cover is for four. FWIW I paid $605 last year - no snow sports this year.

Have you tried QBE via travelinsurance.com.au or even Entertainment Book?

You still get the QFF points.
i was just looking at ddron links a couple of hours ago.

Still need to work out some things ..
