I have been using the current online Citycover Marine Insurance program underwritten by an Australian Insurer. It is very easy to use and quick to arrange Marine Insurance for our clients. Other benefits include arranging insurance up to A$150,000 before needing referral, goods insured from date of cover and no need to wait on Vessel details / container numbers or Bill of Lading numbers, Policy issued once premium accepted, history of policies issued and in the event of a claim it is handled here in Australia quickly and not some call centre overseas that can take several months for settlement.
