I plan to schedule my holiday, flights, and cruise for May, and I’ll use my Diamond Master credit card for payment. If I need to cancel the trip unexpectedly, will the credit card insurance cover it?

Hi Lina,

The current CommBank Credit Card Insurances booklet (pdf, effective 02 June 2023) includes details of the type of cancellation cover available and when it may apply. As you have a specific trip in mind, you may also want to contact insurance provider Cover-More on 1300 467 951 to discuss your travel plans and the cancellation cover that may be available through your card. I hope this helps.

Thanks for reaching out to Finder.


The annual fee for CommBank Diamond Awards Credit Card is charged once each year and will depend on when you first activated your card.


You may also contact CommBank and confirm this information directly with them.


I hope this helps.

I am travelling to United States of America can I be covered 100 % of medical insurance

Hi Aniello,


Thanks for getting in touch! According to our page and Commbanks website – overseas medical benefits – excess applies – is covered for you and family. It says on their website – There are key benefits and maximum benefit limits. If any excess applies, it’ll be included on your Certificate of Insurance. For everything that’s covered including limits, sub-limits, conditions and exclusions, carefully read our Product Disclosure Statement (PDS).


To obtain more information on how much you can be covered, medically, by Commbank Diamond Awards Credit Card, I suggest contacting Commbank directly.


Hope this helps!


Best,

Nikki
