What does Simply International Travel Insurance cover?

Simply Travel Insurance’s International Comprehensive Singles policy will cover you for:

  • Medical cover: Simply offers unlimited medical, and hospital cover as well as up to $500 in dental expenses. You must provide a medical practitioner’s report confirming you’re unfit to travel.
  • Loss/theft of personal items: Simply also covers the loss or theft of personal items, including trip delays or damage. It will pay up to $7,500.
  • Travel delays/cancellation: Simply Comprehensive offers unlimited cancellation cover and lost deposits. It also offers up to $50,000 in additional travel and accommodation due to strikes, natural disasters, riots or other severe weather conditions that may delay your trip.
  • Rental car excess: If, as a result of an unexpected event, the rental vehicle you have hired is stolen or damaged during your journey, Simply Comprehensive will reimburse you for any non-refundable excess payable to the rental vehicle company of up to $6,000.
  • 24/7 assistance: Simply Travel’s emergency worldwide assistance team is available 24 hours a day via phone.
  • Lost or stolen documents: Simply Travel Insurance will cover the cost involved in replacing important documents that have been lost or stolen.

Please note that exclusions may apply. For example, your medical cover may not pay claims for medical or dental treatment received in Australia, while it will only cover losses related pregnancy up to and including the twentieth week. Another example of an exclusion is not being covered for any delays caused by a natural disaster occurring before the start date of your insurance.
