Natural Disaster Cover

When travelling to a destination like Thailand, it is important to include travel insurance for natural disasters. Natural disasters that can occur in Thailand include typhoons, floods, landsides, and tsunamis.

To make a claim due to an unexpected natural disaster, you must have purchased our policy upgrade option and the option must be shown on your policy. Note that there is no coverage for costs incurred relating to a natural disaster if an event is already known prior to purchasing a policy.

Choose our Silver or Gold level of cover for protection against trip cancellation, and consider 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.

Note that medical cover due to any natural disaster is automatically included in all international policies without purchasing this policy upgrade.

What You May Not be Covered For

  • Government Warnings: Check to make sure that any current Australian Government foreign travel warnings won’t affect your travel insurance coverage.
  • Consumption of Alcohol: Claims that arise directly from you or a covered party consuming alcohol will be denied.
  • Motorcycles & Scooters: Claims will be denied if you do not hold a valid driving licence for the country you are in and, for motorcycles 125cc or higher, a valid licence for an equivalent rated motorcycle in Australia. 
  • Unattended Belongings: You will not be covered for any personal luggage or belongings if you leave them unattended in a public place such as a beach.
  • High Risk Activities: InsureandGo policies automatically cover 90 different sports and activities, but make sure to check that your chosen activity is covered.
  • Reporting Incidents: Be sure to report any instance such as theft or loss of belongings within 24 hours to the appropriate authority or risk your claim being denied.
  • Natural Disasters: To make a claim due to a natural disaster, you must have purchased InsureandGo’s policy upgrade option and the option must be shown on your policy. Note that there is no coverage for costs incurred relating to a natural disaster if an event is already known prior to purchasing a policy.
  • Pre-Existing Medical Conditions: InsureandGo considers all pre-existing medical conditions for potential cover, if agreed,  so long as they are reported at time of purchase. Failure to disclose any pre-existing medical conditions may void any claim relating to that condition.

InsureandGo do not automatically include cover for any pre-existing medical conditions. But all conditions can be considered via a medical questionnaire that you can either complete online or through the call centre.

To determine whether your condition will be covered, you will need to complete the Medical Assessment during the purchase process online or over the phone.

Please contact us if you would like to complete the questionnaire over the phone.

Please note that if you do not select this cover you will not be covered for natural disaster. This optional add on can be selected at the end of quotation just before making a payment online or if doing it over the phone our agent will ask you if you wish to add it onto your policy. Whilst you may not be covered for natural disaster if you fail to add on the optional add on, you will still be covered for medical expenses incurred as a result of a natural disaster.
