Frequently Asked Questions

Should I consider travel insurance for New Zealand?
Crossing the ditch may only be a short trip away from Australia, but this doesn't stop hiking mishaps, rental vehicle accidents, lost belongings or unexpected flight cancellations from happening. Instead of feeling stranded, travel insurance can offer cover so you can get on with your trip. Consider the PDS.
Do Australian citizens and permanent residents get covered by the Reciprocal Health Care Agreement (RHCA)?
Yes, the RHCA that Australia has with New Zealand means that some medical costs such as essential hospital care and maternity services may be covered. However, not all expenses are covered, like medical evacuation and medical repatriation, for example. This is when having travel insurance may help cover the cost.
Can I get travel insurance for COVID-19?
Cover for some coronavirus related events is available on all nib international plans. The plans offer cover for medical expenses overseas if you contract coronavirus while travelling, and medical evacuation and repatriation. Our Comprehensive Plan also covers some coronavirus travel costs, such as quarantine expenses and trip cancellation if you are diagnosed with coronavirus.
