  Common Questions

Got questions about travel insurance? We’ve got answers.

Are my flights covered with travel insurance?

If you need to cancel your flights due to unforeseen circumstances, we’ll reimburse you the purchase cost. If you used frequent flyer points, we’ll pay you the value of those points. If your flights are delayed or interrupted for over 6 hours outside of your control, we’ll cover additional accommodation, meals and expenses incurred while you wait.

Are existing medical conditions covered?

We cover 44 pre-existing medical conditions, as listed in the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS), at no additional cost. To find out if your condition is covered, we’ll ask you questions when you get a quote. If your condition is not on the list, you may need to complete a medical assessment.  

Call us for assistance on 1800 015 032

Can I get cover for my expensive stuff?

The maximum amount we will pay for luggage depends on the level of cover purchased. You can choose to increase this level by specifying individual items on your policy (at an additional premium cost).

Do you cover pregnancy?

Yes, provided you are less than 24 weeks pregnant, it is a single pregnancy, there are no unexpected complications and your pregnancy was not medically assisted.

If your pregnancy was medically assisted or there are complications, you will need to complete a medical assessment to determine if cover is available.

If you are more than 24 weeks pregnant, you won’t be covered for any medical treatments required due to your pregnancy. Please check with your doctor before arranging travel plans.

Can I get travel cover if I’m on a temporary visa?

If you are a temporary resident of Australia with an Australian Visa, you can still get travel insurance. (We do not cover temporary residents on tourist or working holiday visas.) Please see the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) for eligibility and further information.

If you have any other questions, please contact us.
