Will you cover me if I'm not vaccinated?

The Australian Government strongly supports immunisation, and the World Health Organization (WHO) advises that it is important to be vaccinated as soon as possible.

If you choose not to take appropriate preventative and precautionary measures to protect against the risk of COVID-19, including vaccination, there are policy exclusions that may apply and affect the cover available if your trip is impacted by COVID-19.

Whether or not you are vaccinated, it is important that you observe appropriate preventative and precautionary measures, such as wearing a mask and practising physical distancing. Remember to check the government and health advice before you go.

If you cannot be vaccinated for COVID-19 for medical reasons, we will take these circumstances into account when we assess what is fair and reasonable with regard to your claim.

It is important to be aware of the requirements of your transport provider as well as the entry requirements at your destination, as losses such as being denied boarding or entry, or additional quarantine requirements due to your vaccination status, are not events that are covered by our policies.

Refer to Department of Health, WHO  and the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) for more information.
