Motorcycle, scooter or moped riding can be a great way to get around and see the sights of a country. But it’s important to note that any claims involving motorcycle, scooter or moped riding are only included if you pay the additional premium for this activity.
Even when you pay the extra premium, you will only have cover if:
- Whilst in control of a motorcycle or moped you hold a valid Australian motorcycle licence or Australian motor vehicle driver licence,
- Whilst you are a pillion passenger the driver holds a valid licence for riding that vehicle;
- The engine capacity is 250cc or less;
- You are wearing a helmet; not participating in a professional capacity; not participating in motocross and not racing.
Skiing and snowboarding
If you are planning on skiing, snowboarding or snowmobiling in your travels – you need to get additional snow sports cover. Unfortunately, these activities are not automatically covered under Medibank Travel Insurance and will need to be added to your policy as an extra premium.
Extra Luggage Insurance
To make sure your electronics and other more expensive items are insured, you can vary your luggage and personal effects cover. For an added premium you can increase your cover for individual items (up to $4,500 per item).
Cruise travel insurance
For an additional premium, you can add ‘Cruise Cover’ to your policy. You’ll need to take out cover if you’re going on a multi-night sea or ocean cruise in order to be eligible to claim for events arising from or related to cruise travel.5
24/7 emergency assistance
Our team of experienced doctors, nurses, travel consultants and case managers are here for you, 24/7.
