We offer two international plans, so you can decide what level of cover you need for your trip. Both International plans offer cover for the basics - see our comparison table below for the main differences.

Unlimited Overseas Medical
If you suffer a sudden illness or serious injury while travelling we offer cover for the cost of treatment.
Luggage & Personal Effects
We offer cover for accidental damage, theft or permanent loss of your luggage and personal effects.
Cancellation Costs
You can choose to have cover for trip cancellation up to a limit that best suits your plans.
^Coverage is subject to the terms, conditions, limitations and exclusions for each policy, as contained in the Product Disclosure Statement.

Choose from two plans

Before deciding on a plan think about the likelihood of you needing cover for things like rental vehicle insurance excess, cancellation, or any specified items that you may be taking with you. Both plans include optional extras like Snow Sports and Activities cover and an increased limits for Cancellation cover.

International Comprehensive

Our top plan includes all the basics plus cover for Cancellations, Travel Delays, Loss of Income, and Rental Vehicle Insurance Excess (not included on our Select Plan). It's a good choice for if you're travelling with items like new mobile phones or laptops and you need a higher individual item limit to cover those personal effects.

International Select

International Select is great if you just want to cover the basics like Unlimited Overseas Medical. It doesn't include some benefits such as Travel Delays and Loss of Income, has lower limits of cover for things like Luggage and Personal Effects. Cancellation cover is not included but can be optionally added at an additional cost.

International Travel Tips

Cancellation cover

Consider the value of your trip when deciding on your cover limit for cancellation.

On the Select plan cancellation is not automatically covered but you can optionally choose to add this for an additional premium. On the Comprehensive plan up to $5,000 cancellation cover is included in your policy, with an option to add up to $10,000 coverage for an additional premium (note that these amounts are per primary traveller).

Travelling with Valuables

If travelling with valuable items, always be sure to take all reasonable precautions to safeguard them for example, not leaving them unsupervised in a public place, not leaving them behind nor walking away from them.

In instances like this, you can make a claims, but it is highly likely that it would not be approved.
