Most Common Questions

Do you have any restrictions or limits on 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. “

I am overseas right now – can I buy, change or upgrade a policy?

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.

Does your insurance cover damage to a rental car?

Our Gold policies cover your rental car excess up to $8,000 for International policies and up to $7,500 in Domestic policies. 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.

What does ‘excess’ mean?

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.”

Do you cover pre-existing medical conditions?

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.
