On Cover-More's website you can only buy a policy for up to 6 people.
Yes, you don’t even need to pick a cruise specific policy. Here’s a top tip: Even if you’re travelling in Aussie water you still need to pick pacific.
Yes if you purchase Cover-More’s snow sports activity option. This policy will cover for $1,500 worth of skiing equipment, $1,000 piste closure and $1,500 skiing pre-paid costs.
Yes if you select their ‘buy-out’ option you can decrease your excess to nil.
Cover-More allow you to increase the single item for luggage up to $4,500 by paying an additional premium. For multiple items the overall increase in limits cannot increase $7,000. You can also pay to increase car hire excess to $3,500.
Nope, you're not covered for any claims arising from the insolvency of any travel agent, tour operator, accommodation provider, airline or other carrier, car rental agency or any other travel or tourism services provider that provides services or accommodation.
No, you can only buy cover if you are a resident of Australia and will be returning home before your policy ends. Non-Residents living outside of Australia can obtain Australian inbound travel insurance cover provided they return to their country of residence at the completion of the period of insurance (and within 18 months of the journey commencing).
You are only insured to ride a bike up to 200cc irrespective of what’s on your license. There is no cover unless you hold a valid license in Australia for the same class of vehicle you are operating overseas, and you are wearing a helmet.
Having too much fun? You cannot extend your current policy, but it’s no problem to just purchase a new one. If a medical condition arises before buying the second policy, this condition may now be considered a pre-existing medical condition. So make sure you notify Cover-More if your health status changes at all.
If you are planning to hire a car overseas, you may want to take out additional car hire excess to avoid a hefty bill from the rental company in the event of an accident. Both Options and Travel Sure already have car hire excess in place but you have the power to increase this excess to $3,500 for an additional premium loading. You are only covered for a rented sedan, campervan, hatchback or station-wagon (including 4WDs) rented from a licensed motor vehicle rental company.
