Travel insurance policy options

We offer three types of policy, with the option to select your own excess.

You can also select increased cover for specified high value items, to be covered for civil unrest in the Pacific Islands or for terrorism and automatic free cover for some pre-existing medical conditions.

The tables below set out a summary of the cover that is provided under each plan and the most we will pay in total for all claims under each section.

Important – Please note: A maximum total limit applies for all claims by all insured persons under certain sections and other limits, sub-limits, conditions and exclusions apply. Where used, unlimited means only that where there is no capped dollar sum insured and all costs and expenses claimed must be reasonable. Refer to the general exclusions and policy cover for more details.
