We're really sorry about the wait time our customers are experiencing right now. When the travel ban and the lockdown first occurred, we took the decision to prioritise customers who were experiencing a medical emergency overseas. We're now focused on processing the unprecedented volume of policy requests from customers.
We're currently working through a large backlog of emails to get you a response. However, to help set expectations, this will take time to get through the large volume of requests, and so you may not get an answer for 2 to 4 weeks. We’re here to help and we’re going to get you sorted. But please be patient with us. 🙏
Our staff, who are based in Australia, are working all hours to get through these enquiries. While we know a delay can be frustrating, we ask that you please extend our staff courtesy and respect when dealing with them.
Thank you for your patience and understanding right now during this challenging time.
For any new enquiries, please message us here.

If you need to cancel your trip, notify any travel providers (airlines, accomodation, tour providers, etc) of your intention to cancel.
Make sure you check whether your travel providers will refund you. Sometimes, they will return deposits, fares, etc., depending on when you cancel and what your original contract states.
If you aren’t reimbursed, then check certificate of insurance and the PDS to see whether your circumstances are covered.
Once you have done this, and you intend to claim, you’ll need to obtain and supply confirmations, refund advices, and terms and conditions. We request these for lodgement of your claim.
In the first instance, you should contact the airline to see if any alternate arrangement can be made or any compensation may be offered. Please retain any documentation provided by the airline or receipts for any out of pocket costs which you may incur as a result of the delay or cancellation should you need to submit a claim.
