Is coronavirus cover available on all plans and what are the benefits?

Cover for some coronavirus related events is available on all our plans, but the types of benefits and benefit limits vary between international and domestic plans.

As much as we’d love to cover every coronavirus-related scenario that a traveller can think of, that’s not what travel insurance is designed to do, so carefully read the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS), to know what is, and isn’t, covered.

  • Overseas Medical Benefit: If you get sick with coronavirus while on your trip, our International Comprehensive travel insurance plans include cover for overseas medical expenses.
  • Medical evacuation and repatriation: Both our International and Australian Comprehensive travel insurance plans include cover for medical evacuation and repatriation if we agree it’s medically necessary, based on the reasonable recommendation of a medical practitioner appointed by us.
  • Coronavirus Travel Costs: Our ‘Coronavirus Travel Costs’ benefit is available on our International and Australian Comprehensive plans, and can provide cover for several coronavirus related events, including quarantine expenses and trip cancellation if you are diagnosed with coronavirus.
