SURA drives forward with SURA Australian Bus and Coach

Another one of SURA’s market-leading specialist underwriters has become part of the SURA-branded family, with ABC Underwriting to move forward into a new era as SURA Australian Bus and Coach.

Leading the market since 1979 with specialist insurance cover for the bus and coach industry, ABC Underwriting has long been a preferred insurer for the industry’s vehicles, depots and businesses.

Joining the SURA family of specialist underwriters, the same specialist team, industry-specific products and commitment to service will now take the name SURA Australian Bus and Coach.

SURA managing director, Angie Zissis, said SURA Australian Bus and Coach was a welcome addition to the growing family of SURA-branded agencies and complemented the existing SURA suite.

“We have purpose built a specialist underwriting proposition at SURA that brings together complementary agencies who understand their niche industry’s better than anyone else.”

SURA Australian Bus and Coach national manager, Matt Etheredge, said the SURA brand was part of the continued evolution of a business which has always aimed to improve for its end customers.

“We’ve been in this business for a very long time, and our bus and coach clients and their brokers have always expected us to improve our proposition. That’s why brokers choose us,” he says.

“SURA Australian Bus and Coach’s promise will be the same. We’ll be providing our bus and coach owner and operator clients with the same broad, tailored cover they know and love. For brokers, our new name is a symbol of our willingness to innovate, embrace change and push the boundaries of underwriting best practice, so we can give them an edge in a competitive market.”

The SURA Australian Bus and Coach team is a trusted partner to the industry Australia-wide, from individual and small bus operations to large corporate and government fleets.
