Please read our full insurance policy terms, provisos, exclusions, and conditions for full details regarding this coverage.
When travelling to a destination like Bali, it is important to include a policy upgrade (available on summary page of quote journey) which will cover you from unexpected natural disasters. Natural disasters that can occur in the Bali region are wide ranging and include floods, cyclones, landslides, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions.
To make a claim due to a natural disaster, you must have purchased this policy upgrade option and the option must be shown on your policy. Please note that there is no coverage for costs incurred as a result of a natural disaster event that is known prior to purchasing or upgrading the policy. If there is a known natural disaster event, it will be mentioned prior to payment on our website and over the phone by our agents.
Note that medical cover due to any natural disaster is automatically included in all international policies without purchasing Natural Disasters add-on.
Choose our Silver or Gold level of cover and you will be protected for cancelling your trip before departure or cutting your trip short. All levels of cover will include coverage for additional emergency expenses. These are expenses you incur after departure that are over and above what you had originally budgeted to pay, if your trip is disrupted, or you are required to return to your home in Australia because of a natural disaster. These expenses can include things such as accommodation, meals, or travelling costs.
We offer cover for Natural Disasters as an add-on for unforeseen events. This add-on can be added at the end of the purchase process before payment. Our Natural Disaster add-on cover you for volcano eruptions that are unknown at the time of purchase. Find more info about known event at travel alerts sorted by most latest at the top.
Medical evacuation is covered as long as medically necessary and emergency. The decision is taken by the claims/assistance team, based on the medical situation and other facts/circumstances.
Unfortunately, you need to buy your policy before you start your trip. Buying your policy after you start your trip will void your policy.
Our Silver and Gold policies cover your rental car excess up to $4000, but not for motorbikes. For a rental car to be covered, you need to make sure that it is insured (confirmed by the rental company), as we do not pay for full damages to a rental car, only your excess.
Yes, we provide cover for the riding a scooter in Bali providing that you are riding the scooter legally in Bali including holding the necessary licences. If the engine size is 125cc or higher you will also need an equivalent licence in Australia. You need to make sure you wear helmet at all times or you risk a possible claim being denied. Also different excesses are applicable in the event of claim depending upon the engine size (for 250cc or under excess is $250; over 250cc excess payable is $500)
InsureandGo travel insurance is designed to protect you against the unexpected and unforeseen, therefore, if you know about an event that is already apparent or ongoing and this results in a claim, InsureandGo will not provide cover.
