What does Cover-More’s international travel insurance cover?

Cover-More’s International Premium plan provides cover for:

  • Overseas medical cover: Cover-More Premium offers unlimited cover for overseas medical, dental and hospital expenses. Sub-limits apply so check Cover-More’s policy wording to find out more.
  • Loss/theft of personal items: If your luggage or personal effects are accidentally lost, stolen, or damaged while travelling, Cover-More can potentially replace, repair, provide a replacement voucher, or pay you the monetary value of the item(s).
  • Travel cancellation and delays: Cover-More’s Premium Plan and Inbound Plan do not automatically include cancellation cover, however, you can add the amount of the cancellation cover that suits you when choosing a policy. On particular plans, there is also cover provided for reimbursement of up to $200 for accommodation if your pre-booked transport is delayed for at least 6-hours due to unforeseen circumstances.
  • Rental car excess: If, as a result of an unexpected event, the rental vehicle you have hired is stolen or damaged during your journey, Cover-More may be able to provide cover for the rental car insurance excess you become liable to pay.
  • 24/7 assistance: Cover-More’s emergency worldwide assistance team is available 24 hours a day via phone.
  • Lost or stolen documents: Cover-More will provide cover for the cost involved in replacing important documents that have been lost or stolen.

Please note exclusions may apply. For example, your medical cover does not cover claims for medical or dental treatment received in Australia, and it will only provide cover for serious unexpected pregnancy complications up to and including the 23rd week, but not cover costs relating to childbirth or the health or care of a newborn child.

Cover-More Travel Insurance FAQs

Yes, Cover-More’s comprehensive policy has unlimited cover for overseas medical and hospital expenses under the following circumstances:

  • You need medical assistance for an unexpected illness
  • You’re seriously injured in an accident
  • You need to be evacuated for an unexpected injury

As always, various conditions and exclusions will apply. It’s highly unlikely you will be covered if the illness you suffer is classified as a ‘pre-existing condition’ and you haven’t applied, been approved and paid for cover of those conditions.

Additionally, cover will not exceed 12 months from the onset of the illness or injury. Please refer to Cover-More’s policy wording to find out more.

If, while you’re travelling, your luggage or personal effects are lost, stolen or damaged, Cover-More will replace, provide a replacement voucher, repair or pay you the monetary value of the luggage or personal effects. Settlement of your claim is based on the value of an item at the time it is lost or stolen.

Again, there are exclusions that come with Cover-More Travel Insurance’s policies. Ensure you check the PDS to find out more about what items and luggage are and aren’t covered.
