Meet a fairer kind of travel insurance
Travel with Jane is a new travel insurance brand for Australians who love to travel. We’re powered by Insured By Us, based in Sydney and proudly 100% Australian owned.
Why did we launch a gender pay gap discount?
We know that 68% of travel insurance policies are bought by women, yet Australian travel insurance products are overwhelmingly geared towards the guys. We’ve set out to change that with a travel insurance option that helps bridge the gap with a standard discount that matches Australia’s national gender pay gap percentage.
About our gender pay gap discount
All our cover options include a 14% gender pay gap discount for women, or Australians who identify as women*.
The discount, which reflects the national Gender Pay Gap, as identified by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA), is available on Travel with Jane’s full range of travel insurance policies including saver, basic, comprehensive, and domestic cover.
The national Gender Pay Gap, draws on current ABS data and is updated on average twice yearly in February and August.
From its inception in 2016, Travel with Jane.com has sought to offer a tangible product benefit to women. While women purchase up to two thirds of the travel insurance policies nationwide, few, if any benefits are directed at them. We identified bridging the Australian Gender Pay Gap as an opportunity to directly serve women, while also raising awareness of the issue, and challenging corporate Australia to follow suit.
*In line with anti-discrimination law, men are able to access the discount by enquiring directly with our team via live chat during business hours or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. No request will be refused. Alternatively, just go ahead and buy with the discount applied. This requires the selection of ‘I identify as a woman’ during the creation of a quote.
