Simplifying travel insurance
The ‘Years of Member Discount’ has been removed from travel insurance products and replaced with a flat 15 per cent discount for all members.
RACV’s manager for travel insurance, Peter Stanley, says that under the previous discount structure 565,000 RACV Blue members received no discount and another 960,000 RACV Bronze or Silver members received a minimal 5 or 10 per cent discount.
“While this means that the Gold 50 discount will be lowered from 20 to 15 per cent, we believe that 15 per cent for all members is fairer.
“We think it’s a generous discount that will give all our members peace of mind when travelling.”
