What If the airline loses my luggage?

If you are entitled to be reimbursed by the bus line, airline, shipping line or rail authority you were travelling on when the loss, theft, misplacement or damage occurred, then you may not be covered.

However, if you are not reimbursed the full amount of your claim, there may be a provision to claim for the difference between the amount of your loss and what you were reimbursed. However, the amount you can claim for will be based on the limit of your cover and needs to allow for depreciation due to the age, wear and tear.

Please note that you need to obtain a written statement outlining what you have been reimbursed from an airline, bus line or rail authority before a claim is lodged with 1Cover.

See the PDS for full details.
