SURA ABC insures buses
ABC Underwriting has insured the bus and coach industry since 1979, but under new name SURA Australian Bus and Coach, it will take bus and coach owners and operators further down the road
SURA Australian Bus and Coach national manager Matt Etheredge has been helping bus and coach owners and operators protect their business assets for many years.
What that requires of an insurance underwriter, he says, is to embrace innovation and change.
“Our bus and coach owner and operator clients and their insurance brokers have always expected us to improve our proposition. That’s why they continue to choose us as their preferred provider,” Etheredge says.
Under the ABC Underwriting brand, Etheredge and his specialist team have led the market since 1979 with purpose-built cover for all risks faced by bus and coach businesses.
Now a part of the SURA-branded family of specialist underwriters, the same team, industry-specic products and commitment to service begin a new era as SURA Australian Bus and Coach.
Etheredge says SURA Australian Bus and Coach’s promise to clients and brokers will be the same.
“We’ll be providing loyal bus and coach industry clients and our insurance broker partners with the same tried-and-tested tailored cover they’ve depended on over the last 38 years,” he says.
SURA Australian Bus and Coach will cover business sectors including general charter, route service, school buses, tourism, airport shuttle, community services, and hospitality.
From eets of more than 500 buses, down to single-vehicle operators, the team is equipped to meet the bus and coach industry’s unique risks with insurance specically designed to mitigate them.
