FAQs About Family Travel Insurance

  • What Is A Dependant?
  • A dependant is an adult traveller's child or grandchild, who is under the age of 21, and who is not in full time employment. In order to be classed as a dependant, the child must be travelling with their parent or grandparent at all times. If you have a child under 16 years of age that requires a single adult policy you will need to contact the call centre to discuss your options. Whether it’s two adults, multiple adults, or just a single adult travelling, we allow for an unlimited amount of dependants under all policies. 

  • What Are The Benefits Of Having Travel Insurance?
  • When you travel it's all about the new and unknown which unfortunately means you never know what could go wrong. Things like medical emergencies while overseas could cost $50,000+, and then there's lost luggage, stolen belongings and delayed flights which are more expenses on top of an already costly holiday. Travel is unpredictable and travel insurance is there to help provide you peace of mind that when the unexpected happens, we'll be there to help out. We advise you to read the Product Disclosure Statement to make sure this product is right for you. If you have any questions please call our friendly call centre on 1300 368 344.
