Most Common Questions

1. I am an international student, am I covered?

Our policies can cover non-permanent residents who have a valid Medicare, Private Health Fund or Overseas Student Travel Insurance in Australia which must be valid for the entire duration of your holiday. If you would like to discuss the eligibility criteria in more details please feel free to contact us on 1300 552 701. Alternatively you can refer to Page 5 of the attached PDS.

3. I am volunteering overseas. Is this covered?

Unfortunately our policies excludes any claims relating to humanitarian work and related travel.

5. Do you cover travel delays and connecting flights?

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.

2. Do you offer partial refunds if I come home early?

Unfortunately we do not offer any partial refund on our policies should you return early.

4. 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.

6. I'm taking out the top cover, am I covered for anything that can go wrong on my trip?

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.
