How This Works

1Cover Travel Insurance want to make insurance a bit less serious and a bit more fun. And what’s more fun than going on a Holiday? But on a Holiday there are also a million things that can go wrong.

We’re looking for your funniest response to the question: ‘THE ONE THING YOU SHOULDN’T DO ON YOUR HOLIDAY’.

It can be anything, a one liner, a sketch, storytelling, a slapstick silent film, even a song, and you can go solo, or do it with a team. Make it less than 2 minutes long and don’t go crazy on your production values. We are looking for the best jokes, not the biggest budgets.

Our panel of comedy experts (and an insurance boffin) will award the prize to the submission that made them laugh the most. Pretty simple stuff.

Entries close 31 July 2018, so start submitting your entries now!

What's in it for me?

Fame and glory! On top of that there is some serious prize money to be won as well.

First Prize: A cool $10,000
Runner Up: $1,500
1Cover Staff Vote: $1,500

Apart from the chance to pocket this large sum of money your jokes will be seen by up to a million 1Cover customers in Australia and New Zealand. They will be shared through weekly emails, social media and PR. Think about the exposure!!

The winners will be announced in the first week of August.
