Transport health insurance: Our verdict

Transport is a not-for-profit health fund which means the money it makes goes back towards its members.

Transport is good if:

  • Good for making a simple, easy-to-understand choice.
  • Good for mix and matching hospital and extras to meet your needs.

Transport is not great if:

  • You want lots of extras options to choose from.
