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 border closures
- If your travel plans go against government advice, your policy will most likely be voided and you won't be covered

AllClear's most basic policy that allows you to be covered for your pre-existing medical condition but gives you lessened benefit allowances with a higher excess.
How AllClear travel insurance works
While there are no age limits, if you are over 99 years old, you will need to call AllClear for a travel insurance quote.
You will still need to clear any pre-existing medical conditions with AllClear prior to taking out cover, and you may be required to provide medical evidence. If there’s a significant likelihood that you will experience a health event related to that condition during your trip, you might still be declined.
Who can apply?
You cannot take out an AllClear travel insurance policy after departure, as it must be taken out in advance. It’s also only available to citizens or permanent residents of Australia, or non-permanent residents who have a valid Medicare card, private health fund or Overseas Student Health Cover in Australia.

What other options are available with AllClear travel insurance?
If you’re going skiing or golfing then you’ll need to make sure you’ve got appropriate cover. You may not be covered for incidents on the snow or the green without it.

- Make sure you select the appropriate region. These range from domestic trips (region 1) to worldwide.
- When travelling to Antarctica, you are only covered for travelling on a cruise.
- Some countries are excluded outright, including Afghanistan, Chad, Democratic Republic of Congo, East Timor, Haiti, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Liberia, North Korea, Pakistan, Palestine, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Uganda, Yemen and Zimbabwe.
There are some other exclusions to be aware of. These are situations in which your AllClear policy won’t pay out. They include:

Pros and cons of AllClear Travel Insurance
- No age limits. You could be 120 years old and still be covered by AllClear.
- No pre-existing conditions are excluded outright. If you’re having trouble getting a policy with another provider, AllClear might be what you need.
- Comprehensive cover. AllClear offers comprehensive travel insurance
- Offers both single trip and annual multi-trip cover. Cover is available as a single trip policy if you’re making a one-off journey or as an annual multi-trip policy for frequent travellers.
- Policies can be pricier. Travellers with higher risk (i.e. pre-existing medical conditions) generally need to pay higher premiums, but the additional cost is worth the peace of mind knowing that you'll be covered (unlike a 'cheaper' policy that won't cover you for your medical condition while you're travelling).
- You need to fill out a long form before you see a price. While this may take you a few minutes, it's worth the time declaring all your medical conditions to know that you'll be covered.
