    Can i get medical cover for my son who is travelling to europe to trial at a soccer club

      Hi Craig,

      Generally, Australian travel insurance brands will not cover emergency medical expenses for sports participation in a professional or paid capacity. Amateur level participation is fine. If you have found a policy but are unsure of how your son will be covered in his circumstances, it’s a good idea to get in touch with the insurer directly.

      Good luck,

      Maurice
