      Hi Cassi,

      Thanks for your question. is a comparison service and not an insurer. iTrek do offer a benefit for Family Emergency but it will depend on the level of cover you take out in regards to how much you’ll be covered for.

      I hope this was helpful,

      Hi Veronica,

      Thanks for your question. The Trekker plan does not provide cover for the loss of personal items.

      I hope this was helpful,
