What does SureSave International Travel Insurance cover?
SureSave’s International Comprehensive Singles policy will cover you for:
- Medical cover: SureSave offers unlimited medical, and hospital cover as well as up to $1000 in dental expenses. You must provide a medical practitioner’s report confirming you’re unfit to travel.
- Loss/theft of personal items: SureSave also covers the loss or theft of personal items, including trip delays or damage. It will pay up to $12,000.
- Travel delays/cancellation: SureSave Comprehensive offers up to $5,000 cancellation cover and lost deposits, with the option to increase to unlimited. It also offers 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, SureSave Comprehensive will reimburse you for any non-refundable excess payable to the rental vehicle company of up to $5,000.
- 24/7 assistance: SureSave’s emergency worldwide assistance team is available 24 hours a day via phone.
- Lost or stolen documents: SureSave 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.
For more details about what is and isn’t covered, check out the Product Disclosure Statement on the SureSave website.
Yes, The SureSave International Travel Insurance policy has unlimited cover for overseas medical and hospital expenses, as well as up to $1,000 dental 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 that you will be covered if the injury you suffer is classified as a ‘pre-existing condition’, for example.
For more information, read the SureSave Product Disclosure Statement (PDS).

For personal items and jewellery, you must specify them before applying, and all items must be approved by SureSave; otherwise they will not be covered. Ensure you check the PDS to find out more about what items and luggage are and aren’t covered.
