What's not covered?

Every insurance policy has details of when you will and won't get cover. These details can be very specific, which is why it is important to always check your insurance policy documents.

To give you an idea, here are some of the key things you won't be covered for with Bankwest credit card complimentary international travel insurance:

  • Epidemics and pandemics
  • Existing medical conditions if they're not covered by the included or upgraded policy
  • If you don't follow advice from any government, official body or mass media announcements (for example, Do Not Travel advice)
  • If the issue is the result of substance abuse or non-prescription drugs
  • Claims relating to elective medical, dental or cosmetic procedures you have when you're overseas (also includes getting new tattoos and piercings)
  • If you're a crew member or pilot of any of the transport
  • Dangerous activities including rock climbing (with equipment), white water rafting, bungy jumping, off-piste snowboarding or skiing and quad or motorbike riding on a vehicle that has an engine capacity of 200cc or more

Does Bankwest complimentary credit card travel insurance have coronavirus cover?

No, coronavirus (or COVID-19) is not covered by this policy. Cover-More says on its website that "If you have travel insurance with Cover-More via your credit or debit card, this event (i.e. COVID-19) is excluded and there is no cover."

This basically means that you won't be able to make a claim for any issue that's directly or indirectly related to coronavirus. If you want to know if this cover is enough for your trip, you could call Cover-More on 1300 468 340. Or, check out travel insurance options that specifically cover COVID-19.

If you need cover for a skiing trip, bungy jumping or other overseas adventures, check out adventure sport travel insurance costs and conditions.

What do I need to do to use Bankwest's credit card international travel insurance?

If you're planning a trip and want cover through your Bankwest credit card, you'll need to meet the following requirements:

  • Travel. You need to be travelling overseas.
  • Credit card. You need to have an eligible Bankwest credit card that is active and in good standing at the time you want to make a claim under this cover.
  • Age. You can use this cover if you're aged 80 or under at the time you meet the rest of these requirements. If you're over 80, you won't get cover for any claims relating to your health or other medical issues, but could get limited cover for other issues.

Does Bankwest credit card travel insurance cover family members?

Yes, if you meet the eligibility requirements for cover, your spouse and dependants (children) can get cover under this policy when they're travelling with you for the entire trip.

Keep in mind that they also need to meet all the other conditions of the insurance policy.

Length of cover

The length of cover you can get depends on your Bankwest card and whether you get upgraded cover. Here are the key details:

  • Bankwest Platinum credit cards: Up to 31 days in a row for included cover and up to 3 months for upgraded cover.
  • Bankwest World Mastercard credit cards: Up to 6 months in a row for included cover and up to 12 months for upgraded cover.

Existing medical conditions

Bankwest's complimentary credit card international travel insurance automatically covers a limited number of existing medical conditions (also referred to as pre-existing medical conditions by other insurance companies).

Existing conditions that are covered include:

  • ADHD
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Coeliac disease
  • Diabetes
  • Hay fever
  • Hypothyroidism
  • High blood pressure
  • Pregnancy up to 24th week

To get automatic cover for any of the listed conditions, you need to be aged 79 or younger, with no hospitalisation in the last 12 months that relates to the condition. Before you travel or get a certificate of insurance, you also cannot have had surgery involving any joints, the back, spine, brain or abdomen requiring at least an overnight stay in hospital for the condition.

Some existing medical conditions also have other requirements. For example, with diabetes, you need to be aged 50 or under and have been diagnosed at least 6 months before your trip. You also can't have any known cardiovascular disease, or any related kidney, eye or neuropathy complications.

Remember:

Check the requirements for cover if you have any existing medical condition. The Bankwest Credit Cards Insurance booklet has a full list of pre-existing medical conditions that can be covered under this policy, starting on page 45.

Cover options for other existing medical conditions

If you have an existing medical condition that's not automatically covered, or one that doesn't meet the requirements listed for cover, you can apply for cover by completing a health assessment before your trip.

Just call Cover-More on 1300 468 340, or log in to your Bankwest account to find details about applying for cover.

Note: If your pre-existing medical condition is approved for cover, you will need to pay a premium, which Cover-More will advise you of at the time. After that, you'll be issued with a certificate of cover for your trip.

Got a pre-existing health condition that's not covered? Check out travel insurance policies that offer cover for conditions including allergies, epilepsy and physical disabilities.

    I was recently holidaying in Darwin and had a relatively minor accident in my hire car (backed into a bollard). The rental company has since charged me $850 for repairs. Original payment for the rental was part of a travel package which I paid using my Bankwest platinum card. I didn’t purchase any extra insurance from the hire company. Is it worth me making a claim on my credit card insurance?

      Hi Murray,

      Thanks for your comment. I’m sorry to hear you were in an accident during your trip. That’s the last thing you would want to happen on your trip.

      Typically, a car hire excess insurance is imperative but optional insurance coverage for rentals. This will cover you for the excess you may be liable for in the event your hire car is stolen or damaged. Essentially, excess insurance is an additional insurance policy that will cover you against the excess charges.

      The Bankwest Credit Card Complimentary Insurance covers you for international travel insurance including the rental vehicle excess cover. There is no information on domestic travel – rental excess cover via their PDS. It would be best to contact Bankwest directly for further assistance.

      Hope this helps and feel free to reach out to us again for further assistance.

      With care,
      Nikki

      Hi Murray,

      Thanks for getting in touch! “While we review Bankwest in our pages, it’s helpful to know that we are not directly affiliated with them. It would be best to check your Bankwest PDS and/or travel agent whether it’s covered. You can also contact the customer service support of Bankwest directly for further assistance.

      Hope this clarifies and we hope they find a quick resolution for you!

      With care,

    The Bankwest complimentary PDS has an exclusion if the rental vehicle is driven in violation of the terms of the rental agreement. If someone had an accident from breaking a simple road rule would that be considered a violation of the rental agreement?

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      MayDecember 18, 2018Staff

      Hi Deb,

      Thanks for your question.

      Well, we can’t really say whether it is a violation or not as that would entirely depend on the type of road violation and on what was really outlined in the agreement or policy with the rental company. Best to revisit the agreement first or if possible contact the rental company to confirm this. But you are correct, you won’t be covered by your complimentary travel insurance with Bankwest credit card if you’re operating a rental vehicle in violation of the rental agreement.

      Hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      May

      Hi Debbi!

      Thank you for the comment.

      As stated in the PDS of the Bankwest complimentary travel insurance, the “spouse and dependents” should be travelling with the primary cardholder for the entire journey and meet all the other eligibility criteria stated above. Otherwise, you may not get the complimentary travel insurance cover.

      Hope this answers your question.

      Hi Malcolm,

      Thank you for your question.

      I’m afraid she’ll not be covered if she’s not travelling with you on the same itinerary for the entire journey. This is one of the eligibility criteria for this complimentary travel insurance. For more information on this travel insurance, you can refer to the PDS I have sent to your email.

      Best regards,
      Liezl
