AURIMS LISTSERV QUERY
ID 08A Topic E-Travel Insurance Website
Date: Contact Kimberley Pelly University Canberra
Query 1. If you have an e-travel insurance website (for personal travel
insurance) do you use that particular insurer because your University
Business Travel insurance is also through the company?
2. If you have an e-travel insurance website, do you only allow one
insurer to advertise through you or do you have several links to e-
travel insurance websites?
3. If you don’t have an e-travel insurance website is there a reason that I
should know about?
Q.1 8 out of the 11 responses stated that they have links to their current provider’s
website for private travel. The main reason for this is the ease of staff being
able to take out insurance with the same provider when they travel in excess of
the allowable private travel days.
Of the 3 universities that did not have a link, different reasons were provided.
Q.2 All 8 universities who answered “yes” above have a link ONLY to their travel
insurance provider. Of these 8, only 2 universities considered allowing more
than the one link on their website.
Q.3 Of the 3 universities who did not have a weblink, it was considered that the
insurance queries from staff and students relating to personal travel insurance
would outweigh the usefulness of the link.
