Travel Insurance Tips

Travel insurance covers the policyholder for insurable events that may occur before or during travel, such as trip cancellation/interruption, medical expenses, baggage damage/theft and more.

Regardless of whether you travel overseas regularly, infrequently or on a once-in-a-lifetime trip, travel insurance is very important.

The cost of travel insurance is based on the type of cover requested, the age of the insured, the destination of travel, length of stay and any pre-existing medical conditions. It is important to obtain the right type of travel insurance to suit your individual requirements.

Important points to note when choosing travel insurance:

  • Always read the product disclosure statement and ensure that you understand exactly what your travel insurance covers. Travel insurance is not unlimited. It may not cover you for cancellation or change to travel plans.
  • Clarify any policy issues directly with the insurer.
  • Ensure that medical cover is adequate for possible expenses in the country you are going to visit. In some parts of the world medical costs can be very expensive.
  • Ensure you declare any pre-existing medical conditions you may have.
  • Generally, cover for luggage and personal belongings is limited and expensive items such as cameras, laptops and/or jewellery may have a per-item limit.
