If the government issues a ‘Do no travel’ warning for coronavirus in my destination and I choose to go there anyway, will I have cover for coronavirus-related expenses?

No; any losses that arise from your failure to follow the ‘Do Not Travel’ advice issued by the Australian government will not be covered.

We recommend that you research the area(s) you are travelling to and keep up to date with the latest government and health advice before as well as during your trip: 

For Australian travellers seeking international information see smartraveller.gov.au and for domestic information see health.gov.au.

Cover may be available for some coronavirus-related events. Refer to the Product Disclosure Statement for all policy terms, conditions, limits and exclusions.
