GuardYourTrip's travel insurance essentials

Here are a few things to consider when choosing your travel insurance plan to make sure that you've got the cover you want for your holiday:

  • Cancellation: It's no fun if you're seriously ill before you leave and can't go on your trip. All travel insurance plans are different and some have specific terms of cover for cancellation, so please read the policy wording relevant to you carefully.
  • Lost or Stolen Gear: Most travel insurance plans have a per-item value limit - make sure its high enough to cover your gear or choose a policy that allows you to increase the limit.
  • Medical expenses over and above evacuation: Check that your cover includes emergency treatment while away and transport to bring you home - remembering that in more serious circumstances, insurance providers will usually insist on getting you home for medical treatment if you're fit enough to travel.
  • Adventurous Activities: Look carefully at what your policy covers as each plan is different and may only cover specific sports and activities. Check that you're covered to do all of the adventurous activities that you are planning while you're away.
  • Personal Liability: Accidents happen. If it's found to be your fault and someone decides to sue you, you want to be covered. Read the full description of coverage in the policy wording and talk to the insurer first before you admit it was your fault. Also keep in mind travel insurance doesn't typically cover liability while you're driving (be it cars, motorbikes, scooters, boats… anything with a motor, really) so make sure you've got appropriate cover elsewhere if you need it.
  • Is it safe to go there? Make sure you check your Government's Travel Warnings and keep up to date with the latest travel safety advice on the road. You may not be covered if you choose to go to a place affected by war, terrorism, civil unrest or environmental disasters (like volcanoes, earthquakes, floods) and other major events where you may be at risk. Access up-to-date travel safety alerts, safety advice and tips online through the Travel Safety Hub.
  • Be adventurous
    From skiing & snowboarding in New Zealand to whitewater rafting in Colorado, the insurance plans cover a range of adventure activities, giving you peace of mind so you get the most from your travels.

True Claims Story: Mountain biking accident True Claims

I was out mountain biking when a tree got in my way. On impact, the handle bars of my bike twisted, bluntly jutting into my ribs before I went flying. I was in a lot of pain but there was no external bruising. When I started having muscle spasms near my ribs, I went to a nearby hospital and I was told I had multiple fractures in my ribs.

Claim outcomes will vary depending on the policy purchased, please read your Policy Wording to see the full terms and conditions of your coverage.

True Claims Story: Dengue Fever True Claims

I had a headache that for several days was becoming worse and worse. I had waves of chills and heat, and was extremely sweaty and hot to the touch. After several hours, including multiple tests and medicines at the hospital, the doctor decided that I likely had a viral infection, possibly Dengue Fever, but that I was well enough to fly and I was discharged with several prescriptions.
