International Travel Tips

Cancellation cover
Cancellation cover
Your policy limit for “Cancellation or holiday deferment costs” must be chosen at the time of purchase. You can vary the maximum trip cancellation limit at the time you purchase your policy, and you will be advised of any change in premium.
Travelling with Valuables
Travelling with Valuables
Always be sure to take all reasonable precautions to safeguard all your luggage and personal effects. For example, don't leave them unsupervised in a public place, nor leave them behind or walk away from them. In instances like this, you can make a claim, but it is highly likely that it would not be approved.

FAQs about International Travel Insurance

Will I be covered for cruising?
Good news, cover for cruising is automatically included in our international policies. If you get sick aboard a cruise, we can offer overseas medical cover on board, including if you contract Coronavirus during the trip. Make sure you’re following all relevant government and official advice.

All policy terms, limits and exclusions apply, and you should be aware there are things we don’t cover, such as your cruise being cancelled by the provider due to an epidemic or pandemic.
Can nib cover my existing medical condition?
Yes, we can offer automatic cover for over 40 existing medical conditions, provided that you satisfy the criteria for that condition. If your condition is not automatically covered, you can apply for cover before or at the time you buy your policy. In many cases, we expect we'll be able to offer you cover for your existing medical condition for an additional premium.
Can I purchase a policy if I'm already travelling overseas?
Yes you can purchase a policy after leaving your home in Australia, however there is a 72 hour waiting period for all policies purchased while travelling. If you purchase while you're travelling, you must purchase cover up to the date you will return to your home in Australia - we can't cover you for the middle of a trip.
