    When you sign on for the Credit card in one person’s name and then purchase over $500 for Travel does the Insurance cover both persons i.e. husband and wife travelling together of whom tickets were purchased for at the same time? OR, is the insurance only extended to the Card holder and the partner is not covered?

      Hi RH,

      Thanks for your comment.

      Most policies also extend coverage to your partner and children when they travel with you. The key is to make sure you know who and what is covered by the policy and that you all meet the requirements for coverage, just as you would with a bought policy.

      While credit card complimentary insurance policies vary between issuers, they are underwritten by the same major insurance companies. Here, we’ll look at the two main providers and the credit card policies they underwrite to help you understand how and when your family will be eligible for cover.

      Best to contact NAB directly to check further.

      Regards,
      Jhezelyn
