If you're going mountain biking on your holiday, it's important to make sure that you're well covered by travel insurance.
Our policies cover 90 activities and sports automatically, including mountain biking. Be aware, that the policies don't coverracing, extreme ground conditions, or stunts. Additionally, there is a $250 excess payable for claims relating to mountain biking.
"We cover all medical expenses related to mountain biking (not racing or extreme ground conditions or stunts), while you are overseas. We do not cover personal liability, or permanent disablement as a result of this activity. We also do not cover mountain boarding or mountaineering which involves climbing or ice equipment. "
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.
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.
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."
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.
Our Silver and Gold policies cover your rental car excess up to $4000. However, you need to make sure that the rental car is insured (confirmed by the rental company), as we do not pay for full damages to a rental car, only your excess. Please note, motorbikes are excluded.
