About us

With focus comes expertise. At TINZ, travel insurance is all we do.
 

 

Who’s behind TINZ  

We at TINZ, are a passionate, energetic breed with a deep understanding of insurance and travel patterns. We've decided to channel our energy into providing Kiwis with the best travel insurance that money can buy.

We know that some travellers are planners by nature and others set a loose path preferring to 'plan on the fly'.  So we don't charge you for the things you won't need and have included some extras as standard so that you can confidently travel with spontaneity.

We understand that everyone has a unique journey with varying needs.  Which is why our products have 3 levels of cover to choose from with optional extras that allow you to tailor your insurance to your trip.
