    What are the dollar limits on luggage lost by airlines?

      NikkiMarch 6, 2019

      Hi Chris,

      Thanks for getting in touch! International cover for luggage and personal effects is $5,000 at the time of writing, with a $100 excess. However, this is for multi trip insurance only.

      As it says on ther website, “when we receive a personal belongings claim, you have to provide proof of ownership for the lost or stolen items. We realise that policy holders cannot always provide receipts for each and every item, but you’ll still have to provide evidence of ownership. We can accept photographic evidence, warranty cards, manuals, receipts, bank or credit card statements as proof of ownership.”

      Hope this was helpful. Don’t hesitate to message us back if you have more questions.

    I would like a quote for travel insurance for my son. He is 23yrs old, Australian departing Japan on November 6, arriving in the USA on the same day. Not sure of when he will be returning home but presume it will be at least 6 months. He will be skiing while in the USA. Is this something you can help me with?

      Hello Kristie,

      Thank you for your comment.

      We apologize for not being able to answer this comment before your son left for the USA. Anyway, as for the quote for the travel insurance, since your son is already overseas, he could have gotten a quote directly from 1Cover Already Overseas Travel Insurance by clicking the Get Quote button.

      As for the other options of getting travel insurance back home, he may check our list of overseas travel insurance. It has the list of the insurers (2 insurers) that your son may take and get a quote directly while overseas. Also, kindly read the tips on how to go about getting insurance while overseas for your son.

      Please make sure to read the eligibility criteria, features, and details of the policy, as well as the relevant Product Disclosure Statement PDS/T&C’s of the policy before making a decision and consider whether the product is right for you. If necessary, speak to the insurance brand to verify any details.

      Hi Mary,

      Thanks for leaving a question on Finder.

      If you a looking for travel insurance for a cruise you will need cruise cover. You can compare cruise policies using our comparison table. Just press the “Get quote” button to request free quotations.

      When deciding on which policy you’ll want to consider a policy that covers any pre-existing medical conditions that you have. Once you find a policy that you prefer, you can go through to the provider’s page and get in touch with them in regards to any pre-existing medical conditions that you have.

      Some benefits you may look for include:

      • Unlimited medical benefits
      • Cancellation cover that covers the cost of your trip
      • An excess that you are okay with paying e.g. you may have to pay an excess of $100 when you claim

      Please send me a message if you need anything else. :)
