Supporting Vulnerable Customers

Prioritising the well being and safety of our customers is deep-rooted in our D.N.A.  Vulnerability comes in many shapes and forms and we will always strive to support customers in difficult times with sensitivity, flexibility, empathy and care.

 

FAMILY VIOLENCE POLICY 


We recognise that family, domestic and financial abuse is a serious and sensitive issue. We encourage customers experiencing family violence to notify us of that fact by whatever means they feel comfortable.
 

We provide our customer-facing employees (including our claims, sales and complaints staff) with appropriate training so they can identify and support customers who are affected by family and domestic violence with extra care and flexibility.
 

You can find out about the support we will offer you, along with additional information regarding support services
by downloading and reading our Family Violence Policy.

We are dedicated to providing assistance and support to our employees and customers.  We understand that different people experience vulnerability in different ways and have trained our employees to identify customers that may be in a vulnerable situation.  We have embodied the following initiatives to support those experiencing vulnerability and/or financial hardship.  If you, or someone you know requires support please notify us by whatever means you feel comfortable.

Mental Health

mental health conditions 

We believe that mental illness needs more candour and less stigma. We treat our customers and employees with past or current mental health conditions fairly.  We see diversity as one of our core strengths and have designed our travel insurance in accordance with anti-discrimination laws relating to mental illness.
 

Financial Hardship

FINANCIAL HARDSHIP

We understand that life can take unexpected turns. If you are experiencing financial difficulties, there are a number of ways we may be able to provide support to you. This includes fast-tracking of claims if you have an urgent financial need and providing payment options for your claims excess.
