If you are in Australia on a working holiday visa, a sponsorship visa, or even a student visa, we may be able to help with your travel insurance. All we require is for you to have valid Medicare, or private health insurance, whilst you are here.
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.
Unfortunately, we do not offer any insurance for any inbound travellers coming to Australia.
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 policy can cover non-permanent residents who have a valid Medicare, private health insurance or overseas student travel insurance in Australia which must be valid for the entire duration of your holiday. The Australian Government has certain agreements with countries around the world, called the Reciprocal Health Care Agreements (RHCA). If your country of residence is a part of this agreement then you can receive Medicare benefits.
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.
With our policies you will be entitled to a full refund of the premium paid if you cancel this within 14 days of purchasing your policy. Please note that we do not offer any refunds on policies outside the cooling off period.
