Things we cover

  • Travel delays

    Travel delays

    Delays at airports are becoming more and more frequent. Caused by various unavoidable factors including weather, air traffic control, security, cancellations, diversions and late arrivals, delays are frustrating but are also a part of life when travelling. Our travel insurance provides compensation if you are delayed for more than 12 hours.

  • Overseas medical expenses

    Overseas medical expenses

    This is one of the most important parts of all the best travel insurance policies, so you should ensure that the cover provided will adequately protect you when you need it most. Travel Insuranz not only covers your surgical and hospital costs if you are taken ill or injured but, if it is serious, will also arrange for a friend or family member to be flown over to be with you while you recover.

  • Missed connections

    Missed connections

    Are you flying in Australia to catch your international flight? What if your first plane is late and you miss the BIG one?  Our Missed Departure/Connection section pays the extra flight and hotel costs to get you to your destination so you won’t be sitting at the airport wondering what to do next.

  • Covers evacuations

    Covers evacuations

    Sometimes local medical care is not appropriate to treat your illness – our 24/7 medical assistance team will monitor your condition and if necessary will arrange for you to be evacuated to a better medical facility – this can sometimes be in another country or they’ll arrange for you to come back to Australia. Our medical experts take your health as top priority.


  • Epidemics & pandemics

    Epidemics & pandemics

    Take a look at other travel insurance providers and you’ll see that most exclude medical claims from an epidemic or pandemic. So for example, if you travelled on a plane and sat next to someone with swine flu, and as a result were taken ill while overseas – you would not be covered. But with Travel Insuranz, you would be covered for your overseas medical costs. Please note that cover is applicable to overseas medical expenses only.

  • Covers cruises

    Covers cruises

    No extra to pay if you’re going on a cruise. If you are cruising in Australian waters, but want to ensure that you are covered for medical expenses, you should select your area of travel as South Pacific.

  • Cover for gadgets

    Cover for gadgets

    No doubt you’ll be taking a few gadgets such as a laptop or phone on your trip. Our plans provide different levels of cover depending on their values. Check this out carefully to ensure you take the most appropriate plan.

  • Working overseas

    Working overseas

    Planning on working overseas during your travels? Non-manual jobs such as teaching English as a foreign language, office, bar and restaurant work, even fruit picking is covered. Combine work and travel for the optimum overseas experience.


  • Volunteering overseas

    Volunteering overseas

    Planning on Volunteering?
    Whether to gain some valuable work experience, help others less fortunate than yourself or simply experience a new culture, then it’s important that you have the right travel insurance to support you if things go wrong. Assuming that you are volunteering in a non-manual way such as teaching, then cover is included.

  • Frequent Flyers points

    Frequent Flyers points

    Paid for your airfares by frequent flyer points such as Qantas, Velocity, Asia Miles etc. and can’t travel because of an illness or an accident? Travel Insuranz will refund you the cash value for these points so you won’t be out of pocket.


  • Covers terrorism

    Covers terrorism

    Watch out - Most travel insurers exclude terrorism completely. So you wouldn’t be covered if you had been involved in the recent terrorist attack in Paris and Tunisia. So long as you are not travelling to a country where the Australian Government says ‘do not travel’, then you would be covered for medical expenses. 

  • Riding scooters / motorbikes

    Riding scooters / motorbikes

    Motorbike – Yes, covered if you have a valid Australian motorbike licence.
    Moped/Scooter – Yes, covered if you have a valid Australian drivers licence.
    Travel insurance is not motorbike insurance. It covers you for medical expenses if you have an accident.

  • Hundreds of activities covered free

    Hundreds of activities covered free

    A huge range of sports and activities - from bungee jumping to zorbing are included at no extra cost. So if the worst should happen and you’re injured, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that you’re covered.

Choosing the Right Travel Insurance: A Checklist

Getting the most out of your travel insurance policy is all about choosing the right cover at the very start. Follow our simple checklist to make sure you’re getting the best travel insurance for you!

  • Travel Destinations: Is every one of your destinations covered under your policy? This includes stopovers, even for just a single night, and any places you visit as part of a cruise or tour.
  • Medical: Do you have enough cover for medical expenses? Don’t forget to take into consideration any pre-existing medical conditions, and the circumstances in which your cover may or may not apply.
  • Baggage and Belongings: Are all of your personal belongings and baggage adequately covered? If you have a lot of luggage, you may want to upgrade your level of cover.
  • Valuables: What valuables are you taking with you, and do you have enough cover for them? If you have particularly expensive or important items, you should consider increasing your policy amount to make sure they are protected.
  • Sports and Activities: What sort of activities are you planning on getting involved in? Check the terms and conditions of how your cover applies, for example, scuba diving may only be covered up to a certain depth.
  • Exclusions: What is excluded from your policy? Make sure you understand exactly what’s included and not included in your level of cover, as well as any specific circumstances or situations that may affect them.
