Travel with Jane Covers the Australian Gender Pay Gap with 16.2% off Travel Insurance for Women.

The Gender Pay Gap? Travel with Jane is pitching in to challenge the gap by offering a 16.2% off travel insurance for women. It’s a small way to contribute to a big problem. No matter which way you slice it, women are paid less on average for doing the same work that men do. It’s simply not justifiable and like many women in Australia, we’ve had a gut full. We might only be a travel insurance company, but we’re going to do our bit to make things fairer for women. Maybe we’ll even set a trend? Certainly hope so.

A standard discount of 16.2% on travel insurance for women? It’s only fair. 

Women Like You Are Changing The World.

Imagine a world where men and women are paid the same, for doing the same work? No exceptions? For many women, imagining is not good enough. What we really want to do is get behind the women who are directly challenging gender equality in Australia, and the rest of the world. Join our ambassador program and let us support you with free travel insurance for the year, event sponsorship or financial assistance and story sharing.
