Top 3 tips for getting the most out of your travel insurance

Buy travel insurance early

Make sure you’re covered for unforeseen cancellations prior to your departure.

Select your excess carefully

A nil excess let's you claim all eligible expenses, no matter how small. Or if you want to save on your premium and only claim on larger expenses, you may prefer to select a $100 or $250 excess level.

Consider an annual multi-trip

If you travel frequently, you can save with a Multi-Trip policy. It'll cover you for all your international trips, and some domestic ones.

Money back guarantee

Receive a full refund if you change your mind within 15 working days of the date of purchase, as long as you’ve not yet made a claim or departed on your journey.

We’ve got your questions covered
