What does Travellers Choice international travel insurance cover?
Travellers Choice’s International Comprehensive Singles policy will cover you for:
- Medical cover: Travellers Choice offers unlimited medical, dental and hospital cover. You must provide a medical practitioner’s report confirming you’re unfit to travel.
- Loss/theft of personal items: Travellers Choice also covers the loss or theft of personal items, including trip delays or damage. It will pay up to $12,000.
- Travel delays/cancellation: Travellers Choice Comprehensive offers cancellation cover and lost deposits, with the option to choose your limits. 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, Travellers Choice Comprehensive will reimburse you for any non-refundable excess payable to the rental vehicle company of up to $10,000.
- 24/7 assistance: Travellers Choice’s emergency worldwide assistance team is available 24 hours a day via phone.
- Lost or stolen documents: Travellers Choice 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.
