1Cover Travel Insurance has a policy for almost everyone, even if you’re already overseas.
We’re committed to our readers and editorial independence. We don’t compare all products in the market and may receive compensation when we refer you to our partners, but this does not influence our opinions or reviews. Learn more about Finder.
Important:Travel insurance rules continue to change as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. We’re working hard to keep up and make sure our guides are up to date, however some information may not be accurate during the pandemic. It’s even more important to double-check all details that matter to you before taking out cover. Please know that some policies may not be available through Finder at this time. Here are some helpful tips:
- If you're buying a policy today, it's unlikely that you'll be covered for any coronavirus-related claims
- If your travel plans go against government advice, your policy will most likely be voided and you won't be covered

Are there any additional options?
1Cover offers 5 different add-on packs to give your travel insurance policy more flexibility. Not all plans are eligible to add on these packs.
- Cruise pack. Get cover for your trip along the seas. This pack includes cruise specific cover for things like missed port connections and cancelled prepaid shore excursions.
- Winter sports pack. A must if your paid to your n trip involves things like skiing or snowboarding. Get cover for unexpected accidents on the slopes and if you need emergency evacuation. This is only available for those 64 years and under.
- Choose your excess. All policies have a standard $200 excess which will be an out-of-pocket expense if you need to make a claim. This excess can be reduced to $100 buy paying extra on your policy.
- Increase your rental vehicle excess cover. If your policy includes rental car excess cover, you can increase the cover amount for a bit more money.
- Cover for high value items. If you’re travelling with expensive gear, it could be a good idea to take out extra cover in case your item is lost, stolen or damaged.
