General Advice Warning: The contents of this article were accurate at the time of writing. Insurers change their policies from time to time, so some information may have changed. You should always read the Product Disclosure Statement of your chosen insurer to understand what is covered and what isn't. The information provided is of a general nature only and does not take into account any personal objectives, financial situation or needs. Before making a decision you should consider the appropriateness of the information having regard to your personal circumstances.
Savings - Varying discounts are applied to group policies depending upon the insurance company and size of the group. For example some insurers will offer 5% discount for over 5 travellers and 10% for more than 10 travellers.
Peace of Mind - With group travel insurance, you get the same great benefits as a standard plan. You can cover for the entire group against delayed flights, cancellations, lost luggage, medical treatment and more.
Comparing quotes for a group travel insurance policy is very similar to a single trip policy. Just fill in one simple form and select
- the destination choice
- dates of travel
- enter the number of adults travelling
- enter the number of children travelling
- and ages of all travellers.
The process for buying group travel insurance is much the same as purchasing for an individual. Whether you are actually travelling as part of the group or not, you can purchase online or over the phone on behalf of the group.
It’s really important to read the insurer’s Product Disclosure Statement to understand what your group travel insurance policy includes and excludes. For example certain adventure sports might not be covered, so check what activities are planned for the trip before you book your insurance. You might need to get extra cover.
The group organiser is responsible for answering all the questions on behalf of everyone so be sure that you know everyone’s name, date of birth and all pre-existing medical conditions. In the event that a traveller has a pre-existing medical condition, they will be required to fill out a medical questionnaire before the policy can be purchased.
Then perhaps you should consider a family travel insurance policy. A family travel insurance policy will cover 2 adults and all your children. If you’re travelling with other children they will have to be insured as a separate adult.
When it comes to group travel, don’t insure each person separately, take out a group insurance policy to save time, worry and loads of money.
