Cover-More and Express Travel Group (ETG) have entered a new five-year partnership that’ll see the insurance brand provide policies to Aussies who book through the agency group.

The arrangement, which commenced on 1 October 2018, will be accessible to ETG’s 700-plus agencies nationally and will include key Cover-More policies, including the cancel-for-any-reason (CFAR) product.

Consultants will be able to get a full rundown on the partnership at their annual conference in Shanghai next month, in the meantime, Cover-More’s Michael Stein said the insurance brand is “thrilled” to work with the ETG network.
