Important:

Travel insurance rules continue to change as a result of the pandemic. Some information may not be accurate at this time. It’s even more important to double-check all details that matter to you before taking out cover. Please note:
    • Some policies may not be available through Finder at this time
    • It’s unlikely that your policy will cover expenses from border closures

    Our Verdict

    • You can customise your trip cancellation cover limit on every policy with Allianz. This will make sure you're only paying for the cover that you need.
    • Get a competitive rate of up to $5,000,000 for personal liability cover. Of ten brands that we reviewed, this amount was only matched by World2Cover, FastCover and AMEX.
    • Allianz wasn't one of the seven travel brands we found who offer specified cover for travel impacted by COVID-19.

    warning Finally, some good news! Domestic travel is picking up, so some insurers have started offering cover again 🦘
    Just remember, you won't be covered for any pandemic related claims if you do take out domestic travel insurance.
    International travel insurance is limited and sometimes unavailable at this point.

    Optional extras available with Allianz travel insurance?

    • Adventure pack. The adventure pack is available as an extra with Comprehensive, Domestic and Multi-Trip policies. It covers you for riskier sports and activities such as abseiling, outdoor rock climbing, hiking and more. Be sure to read the PDS before you add this pack though as some sports and activities might still not be covered at all.
    • Cruise pack. If you're going on a cruise, you'll need to get the cruise pack or you won't be covered for claims related to cruise travel. The cruise pack includes medical cover while on the cruise, evacuation cover, cabin confinement, pre-paid shore excursion cancellation and more.
    • Increased item limits. If you need a higher limit than the one your current plan offers, then you can get Increased Item Limit Cover for any valuable items you might be travelling with.
    • Snow pack. If you're planning on going skiing when you travel, the snow pack provides cover for emergency rescue, hire as well as your own snow sport equipment, piste closure, bad weather closure and more.
