New Zealand is a popular destination for adrenaline filled activities and winter sports. If you're heading over there, check out the insurance options available.
Our policies cover 90 activities and sports automatically, including bungee jumping (three jumps max). Be aware, that there are specific activities that are excluded, and limits apply, so please check by searching the policy (ctrl+F) to be certain that you are choosing the coverage that is best for you.
Something to consider, if you're travelling to New Zealand, is the possibility of an earthquake or natural disaster. We offer an add-on that you can take up in the summary page of the quote process if you feel the area you're going to is prone to such problems.
Our Silver and Gold policies cover your rental car excess up to $4000, but not 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 cover all overseas medical expenses (unlimited), as well as permanent injury, and personal liability (policy payout limits apply to these) as related to bungee jumping, so long as you limit yourself to a maximum of three jumps.
A pre-existing medical condition is any condition for which you have received medical advice, treatment or medication in the last five years. Our policies cover many pre-existing conditions; to see if we cover yours, please complete our medical assessment online or over the phone. Please note, failing to declare a pre-existing condition can void your policy.
Our premiums would be astronomical if we could do that! There are limits and exclusions to all travel insurance policies, so we strongly advise you to read our product disclosure statement (or search [ctrl+F] for key words to check limits and exclusions) to see if our product is right for you.
Our policies only cover your flight departing and arriving to Australia directly. If your flight is delayed, and you book an alternative flight, we do not cover the cost of your new flight. We do, however, offer some compensation if your fight has been delayed for more than 12 hours in some circumstances. Unfortunately, we do not cover connecting flights.
Excess is the amount you pay us in the event of a claim being approved. Our excess applies per person, per event, per claim.
You can choose the excess you want ($100, $200, $0), but be aware this will change the price of your initial premium.
You need to be in Australia at the time of purchasing your insurance. If you are overseas, we are unable to offer you new or different insurance. You may be eligible to extend the dates of your existing cover, so shoot us an email and find out.
