Travelling As A Couple

Are you planning to travel with your wife, husband or partner? Taking out a joint travel insurance policy that covers you both can save you money and time.

We've combined a list of the pros and cons of travelling with your partner. It can be fun but like all good relationships there might be a few hiccups along the way.

The Pros:

  • Travelling together teaches you a lot about the other person, it reveals how they act under pressure plus can help strengthen your relationship.
  • You never know what freebies you'll be offered from a complimentary upgrade to a bottle of champagne.
  • You can do things that are better with two people, like dancing, cooking classes or wine tasting.
  • Better than travelling alone - you'll always have someone to mind your bags or lean on during long flights.

The Cons: 

  • Expose a side you never knew about and might not like.
  • Annoying habits will irritate you even more.
  • Being together 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You won't get much free time to yourself.
  • Travelling together puts a lot of pressure on a relationship, even if you've previously lived together


What's Covered With Comprehensive Insurance?

  • Your Belongings. You're most likely to have at least a mobile phone and a laptop to keep you connected, we cover your stuff if it's lost, stolen or damaged.*
  • Medical Expenses. Medical claims are the most common and come at the highest cost, we cover unlimited overseas medical expenses.*
  • Activities Covered. We cover a multitude of activities, including water rafting, moped riding, and bungee jumping.*
  • Cancelation & Lost Deposits. If you have to cancel your plans due to unforeseen circumstances outside of your control.*

*Terms and conditions, limits and exlusions apply. please see PDS for full details. 


What's Not Covered?

  • Drugs & Alcohol. If you're intoxicated, taking drugs (that haven't been prescribed) and your claim results from these actions, than you're not covered.
  • Unsupervised Belongings. Leaving your things laying around is just asking for someone to take them so if you leave anything unattended or unsupervised, we won't cover this.
  • Ignoring Official Warnings. If a government or other official body have issued a specific "Do Not Travel" or "Reconsider Your Need to Travel" warning and you go anyway, we won't cover any claim you make relating to this.
  • Breaking The Law. For obvious reasons we can't help you out here. Always adhere to local laws.

For a full list of what's not covered please refer to the PDS for details.
