If you're planning a trip to a destination within New Zealand, you still need travel insurance. Unexpected accidents and events can happen anywhere. You might go to the beach and lose your wallet, or one of your kids may have an allergic reaction at dinner. Whatever the emergency, make sure you're covered with domestic travel insurance so you can have peace of mind on your holiday.
Why You Need Domestic Travel Insurance
Trip Cancellation or Interruption
It doesn't matter if you're travelling to Paris or Auckland; anything could happen. Some of the reasons for cancelling a trip include severe weather conditions, flight delays or an unforeseen illness or injury of a family member. Instead of forfeiting your money, you can claim from your domestic travel insurance and be reimbursed for your pre-paid, non-refundable trip cost.
Whether you are travelling from Wellington to Dunedin, it's still possible for your luggage to get lost. Opt for a Comprehensive Domestic travel plan that will let you claim reimbursement for any loss or damaged luggage items.
What Can You Expect From Domestic Travel Insurance
Rental Vehicle Excess
If you're hiring a car for a road trip, don't get ripped off. Our Comprehensive Domestic travel insurance can cover up to $6,000 of rental car insurance excess if the vehicle is stolen, damaged or in an accident.
If you're travelling with your family, some policies will cover your little ones at no extra cost.
Unexpected Travel Delays
If severe weather delays your trip, your insurance can help cover additional accommodation expenses.
Tips for Choosing the Best Domestic Travel Insurance Policy
Don't Always Choose The Cheapest Option
While it's important to find a policy you can afford, don't leave yourself drastically under-protected. Make sure you're covered for what you need and always see if the higher excess and reduced benefits are worth the reduced price.
Check the Per-item Limits
It's crucial to know the conditions for claiming lost luggage or expensive items. There might be a payout limit for each item, regardless of how much it costs.
Credit Card Insurance Isn't Always The Best Idea
While it's an affordable option, credit card travel insurance often has a range of exclusions and high amounts of excess.
Keep Proof of Purchase
In the event of a claim, you'll need to provide your insurer proof of purchase for expensive items before receiving your payout. The same goes for an unexpected meal or accommodation costs during your trip.
