What does the Super Saver policy cover?

Dodo Super Saver Travel Insurance includes the following benefits:

  • Overseas medical and hospital expenses. The Super Saver policy includes unlimited cover for medical and hospital expenses you incur whilst overseas. This includes emergency medical, surgical and hospital treatment, ambulance costs and the cost of your return to Australia earlier than planned if medically necessary. Cover is also provided for extra accommodation and travel expenses if you are unfit to return to Australia when planned, as well as for the cost of returning your remains to Australia if you die.
  • Additional expenses. Under this benefit, cover is provided when you need to return home to Australia earlier than planned. This includes cover for your additional accommodation, meals and travelling expenses when you or your travelling companion are deemed medically unfit to continue with your journey, or you need to return to Australia following the sudden death, serious sickness or serious injury of a relative or business partner. Cover also applies when your passport and travel documents are lost or stolen, if your home or business premises in Australia are seriously damaged or if there is any accident involving your means of transport.
  • Luggage and personal effects. Dodo Super Saver Travel Insurance provides cover for luggage and personal items that are lost, stolen or damaged during your trip. This includes cover for the cost of their repair or replacement.
