Trip type information

If you're taking a single trip this year, which does not include any travel by cruise, the one-trip cover is for you. But if you are travelling more than once you may be better off with an Annual multi-trip policy.

For Annual multi-trip policies the maximum trip duration covered is restricted by the policy option selected and will be either 30, 45 or 60 days, after which you must return to Australia before commencing a new trip.

If your trip includes any travel by cruise ship, then select the cruise option to be covered for the land, air AND CRUISE part of your journey. However, if you only want to be covered for the land and air part, then choose One Trip. By cruise we refer to any travel on sea, ocean or river by any commercially operated ship, boat or other sea vessel for longer than two hours.

If you are taking a gap year, an adventure holiday or a round the world trip you may find our Backpacker product is more tailored for your needs.

Important steps to consider before buying a travel insurance policy

The last thing you want is to end up with a policy that doesn’t cover what you need. So to get you started here’s a few things you should consider:

  1. Check smartraveller.gov.au to make sure your destination is safe to visit.
  2. Confirm that all people named on the policy are residents of Australia. If you are in Australia on a working holiday VISA, a sponsorship VISA or even a student VISA, it’s important for you to have valid Medicare cover, or private health insurance, for the length of your trip.
  3. Make sure you buy your policy before you start your trip. If you buy it after you’ve left it will be invalid.
  4. Talk to us about your pre-existing medical conditions, we can tell you if you’re covered and under what circumstances you can make a claim relating to your condition. It’s really important that you’re open and honest about this, because if you don’t declare your conditions you may invalidate your policy.
  5. Work out if you’re willing to pay an excess. An excess is the amount you will have to pay towards the claim yourself. For example, having a $200 excess reduces your premium, but if you make a claim you would need to pay the first $200 yourself. Conversely, if you chose to waive the excess, your policy would be more expensive but you would get 100% of the claim back, provided your claim is approved and does not exceed your policies limit. Find more info about excess here.
  6. Read the Product Disclosure Statement. We know its super boring and long, but it could save you a world of headaches later on. If there’s something in particular you’re not sure about hitting ctrl F on the page and searching for the words (eg camel back riding) will show you the section to look at.

Why get travel insurance?

  • Overseas emergency medical assistance

  • Nobody wants to be involved in an emergency while on holiday, but travel doesn’t always go to plan. Overseas emergency medical assistance provides you with financial assistance if you’re injured or fall sick while traveling. And this is particularly important as medical treatment in overseas countries can be incredibly expensive.

    Having travel insurance means you’re covered for emergency medical evacuations, surgical and hospital treatments, and ambulance costs. We will also cover the cost of your return to Australia earlier than planned if this is medically necessary, and we consider all preexisting medical conditions.

  • Loss or theft of luggage

  • It’s extremely inconvenient, not to mention costly if your luggage is lost, stolen, or damaged while you’re traveling. But with the appropriate cover we will pay for the value of your property at the time it was lost, stolen or damaged. Remember that all items you are claiming as lost, stolen, or damaged must be reported to the appropriate authority, usually within 24 hours, and you will need to be able to provide proof of ownership.

  • Loss of cash or travel documents

  • Losing your cash or travel documents might be your worst nightmare, but with the appropriate policy, we will pay for the cost of replacing your cash or important documents if they are lost, stolen, or damaged during your trip. This includes your passport, travellers cheques, and visas. This cover may extend to lost or stolen cash, but make sure you check the level of cover. You may not be covered in situations where your documents or cash were left unattended, and you will need to provide proof of ownership for any lost or stolen personal money.

  • Travel delay expenses

  • Travel delays are an unfortunate reality these days. There are many causes, but the number of global delays per day can often be as high as the tens of thousands. If you are financially affected by a travel delay of more than 12 hours, and are covered for travel delays, we will reimburse the cost of your necessary additional meals and accommodation expenses. You should check the specifics of your cover, as some limits are applied to this, and you will be reimbursed up to the amount shown on your policy.

  • Rental vehicle excess

  • Many travelers prefer to hire a car on holiday for the additional freedom, however if the car is damaged, stolen, or involved in an accident, you may be responsible for paying the cost of the rental car excess. By choosing a policy with cover for rental car excess, you’re protecting yourself from this risk.

    We will reimburse the rental car insurance excess charged to you through the rental car company, if a car you have rented during your trip is involved in a motor vehicle accident while you are driving, or is damaged or stolen while in your custody. Please note rental vehicle excess is available on Silver and Gold level cover up to $4,000.

  • Cancellation fees

  • We ultimately hope that your trip goes ahead as planned, but sometimes things go wrong and you may need to cancel. An insurance policy which includes cancellation cover will mean you are reimbursed for the money you lose.

    This includes the cost of flights, accommodation, visas and paid for excursions or activities in the event that you are not issued with a refund. You should check the terms of your policy, as certain circumstances will not entitle you to an insurance claim, however some of the circumstances we will pay your benefit for include if the cancellation was necessary due to an injury or illness, if you cannot travel due to a natural disaster which was unknown at the time you took out your policy (make sure to include the natural disaster option in your policy), or if you become pregnant and will be more than 32 weeks pregnant after the departure date after we sold you the policy. We will also cover the cost of rescheduling your trip prior to departure if the cost of rescheduling does not exceed the cost of the cancellation.

    If you need to cut your trip short while you’re overseas due to a necessary and unavoidable medical condition, an unexpected death in the family, a natural disaster which was not known at the time of purchasing your insurance (once again, be sure to include this option in your policy), or serious damage to your home in Australia, we will reimburse you for the out of pocket expenses you lost from having to cancel the remainder of your trip.
