What is Travel Insurance?
We are as enthusiastic about travel as you, and that’s why we want to make it as easy as possible for you. We’ve created a range of inclusions, all of which have been designed with your travel experience in mind.
Why Is It Important to Have Travel Insurance?
Every time you travel you are taking a risk. Even if you're not doing anything dangerous, something could go wrong and result in unexpected medical costs abroad.
Hospital bills can easily end up running into the millions and in most cases, you won't be able to leave the country until you pay up.
Travel insurance also takes care of smaller costs. You can submit a claim if your luggage is lost, stolen or damaged by the airline or if you need to suddenly cancel your trip due to a natural disaster or medical emergency.
What Does a Travel Insurance Policy Cover?
A good comprehensive travel insurance policy will cover:
Medical Emergencies & Evacuation
Unexpected hospital visits and emergency transport home can quickly end up costing thousands of dollars. Make sure to read your policy to see what it doesn't cover and what the limits are for medical expenses.
If you can't go on your trip due to an unforeseen illness or event like an accident or death of a close relative, you can use your travel insurance policy to claim that money back.
Baggage & personal belongings
Loss of personal belongings is one of the main reasons people buy travel insurance. If you're taking your laptop, camera and other valuables with you, some insurance plans let you specify these items to cover their value.
If you're involved in an accident or cause damage by mistake, this part of the policy will cover your liability and legal expenses.
Travel Insurance Optional Add-Ons Available
Your policy automatically includes cover for some activities, such as bungy jumping, jet skiing and kayaking, among others. However, if you’re planning on taking part in more adventurous activities, consider purchasing the Adventure Activities add-on (available for an additional premium) that will cover participation in sky diving, trekking the Kokoda Track, scuba diving between 30m and 50m, and off-piste skiing.
If you are travelling on a multi-night cruise involving an ocean, river or sea voyage, Cruise Cover (available for an additional premium) is a mandatory add-on for cover to apply for on-board Medical and Dental cover, Ship-to-Shore evacuation cover and other benefits, such as cabin confinement allowance and missed port cover.
Overseas Medical and Dental Costs
An unexpected trip to the doctor can ruin even the best planned holiday, and costs can quickly add up. Webjet Travel Insurance includes cover for overseas medical treatment, ambulance transportation and emergency dental treatment, including the cost of repatriation back to Australia if deemed necessary.
Planning on hitting the slopes when travelling? Consider purchasing the Snow Sports add-on that provides cover for on-piste skiing and snowboarding, as well as snowmobiling and cross-country skiing.
