Be free to enjoy travel with Citro’s new partner

If you leave home to travel domestically or internationally, then it’s a good idea to consider getting travel insurance. Citro’s new partner Freely not only offers COVID-19 cover, but also covers older Australians with a 15% cashback offer for our members.

We all know that feeling when the holiday doesn’t go exactly to plan.

Flight cancellations and delays continue to disrupt travel plans and separate travellers from their luggage, with some lawyers even demanding a Bill of Rights for passengers to solve these costly problems.

Getting sick or having an accident are also risks of travelling as you get older.

Smart Traveller says 68% of travellers mistakenly believe the Australian Government would ensure they get medical treatment if they need it overseas, and 43% believe the government would pay their medical bills – but unfortunately, that isn’t the case.

With all this in mind, travel insurance can often be the unexpected hero of your trip.

Citro has partnered with Freely, one of Australia’s most flexible travel insurance options, to make sure our members can access the type of cover that suits them.

Part of the Covermore Group and backed by Zurich, Freely travel insurance not only has coverage for all age groups, but offers a flexible way to add extra coverage on the days you need it. For example, if you’re on holiday and decide to hire a car for three days, you can simply add car rental coverage for those three days.

Freely makes buying travel insurance easier

Despite our best efforts, navigating travel insurance isn’t always easy.

That’s especially the case for older travellers, as insurers tend to categorise people aged 75 and above as higher risk. Securing insurance beyond the age of 80, especially with health concerns, can be exceedingly challenging.

Ultimately, choosing travel insurance always boils down to a balancing act between risk coverage and premium costs.

With Freely travel insurance, you get medical*, trip and belonging coverage in a single bundled plan – plus the ability to add optional any extra coverage you might need, before you depart or even while you’re away.

If you want to talk to someone about getting Freely travel insurance for your next trip, you can call their customer support team every day from 7am to 7pm AEST/AEDT.

(*Medical coverage available on overseas trips only)
