Travel insurance policies on offer from Insureandgo

Everyone has their own idea of the ideal holiday, and sometimes you have to travel for work or family reasons and don’t have a lot of control over your travel plans. However, regardless of your needs, InsureandGo has a range of policies so you can choose the one which best suits you:

  • One trip travel insurance. If you are going on a once off trip such as a big European adventure, or you have to go out on a business trip, then taking out a one trip policy can save you time and money. A one trip policy is competitively priced, yet covers you for a range of circumstances such as overseas medical bills, lost or damaged baggage, holiday cancellation, as well as accidental death or disability.
  • Annual multi trip policy. If it’s likely you will b travelling more than once in a year, then you can save by taking out an annual multi trip policy, which is one policy, that covers you for all of your travel in a 12 month period. You’ll also be covered for unlimited medical expenses, baggage claims up to $8,000, unlimited cancellation, 24 hour emergency medical assistance and you can add children to their parents’ policy for free.
  • Winter sports coverage. If you are planning a skiing, snowboarding or ice skating holiday for example, then you can choose the specialised winter sports travel insurance policy from InsureandGo. The policy is affordable and covers a number of winter sports such as off-piste skiing, snowboarding, and tobogganing. You’ll also have equipment coverage for up to $1,250, the choice of a one trip or annual multi trip policy, free coverage for your kids on your policy and access to 24 hour medical assistance. The winter sports activities you are covered for include:
  • Seniors travel insurance. You can take out an InsureandGo seniors travel insurance policy for an extended trip, a holiday to see family or friends, a cruise or a short break. Seniors can be covered for medical expenses, trip cancellation, for their personal belongings, and you can add your grandchildren to your policy for free.

Additional options available on InsureandGo policies

Excess waiver

When it comes to filing a claim with InsureandGo, policyholders are required to pay an excess, the first part of the claim for each claimant. This excess, however, can be eliminated if you pay an extra premium, known as an excess waiver or eliminator; this eliminator will remove all excess fees. Another option available by InsureandGo is what is known as Double Excess, which doubles all excess paid and reduces your initial premium.

Optional cover extensions

In addition to the excess waiver, InsureandGo provide members with the option to tailor their policies with optional benefits, such as winter sports protection and additional protection for personal effects and luggage for specific items at an additional cost. You may also include business coverage for business equipment, emergency courier expense money for business and emergency staff replacement; and coverage for golf equipment and equipment hire as additional benefits options in your insurance policy.

      Hi John,

      Thank you for your question.

      You have contacted finder.com.au, an Australian comparison and information service and not actually InsureandGo Travel Insurance.

      In order to get cover from Australian travel insurer, most insurers will require that your trip be from or to Australia.

      If you are travelling from Australia you may find our travel insurance for non-residents article helpful.

      All the best,
      Zubair

    I’M THINKING OF GOING TO BOTH ANAA AND KIRIBATI FLY FISHING AT DIFFERENT TIMES THIS YEAR. AS BOTH DESTINATIONS ONLY HAVE WEEKLY PLANE SERVICES, WOULD I BE COVERED FOR MEDICAL EVACUATION IF NEEDED AND WOULD I BE BETTER OFF IN GETTING A MULTI TRIP POLICY BEING 71 YEARS OF AGE,

      Hi Jane,

      Thank you for your question.

      You have contacted finder.com.au and not actually Insure and Go Travel Insurance, finder.com.au is a comparison and information service and don’t represent any insurance brand listed on our website.

      Insure and Go Travel Insurance does provide cover for annual multi-trip policies for up to a age of 100 and will also cover you for evacuation and repatriation.

      Please make sure though to read the eligibility criteria, features and details of the policy, as well as the relevant 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.

      Cheers,
      Zubair

    I will be travelling to Vietnam on April 21, 2017 picking my Indonesian girlfriend up in Denpasar, Bali on the way. In Vietnam we will be going on a motorcycle tour with a group including a professional guide, from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) (April 24 to May 05). I am an experienced motorcyclist with an Australian open class motorcycle and also an international permit who has ridden in Asia on previous occasions, and my girlfriend will be pillion passenger on my bike. Bike is a 250cc Honda in as new condition. I will be 56 years old at the time and my girlfriend is 30 years old. My girlfriend will return to Denpasar on May 06 and I will return to Australia on May 07.
    I am trying to organise (medical only) insurance for my girlfriend and myself for this holiday, and preference would be if policy/policies were organised by the same insurance group. I have only just begun looking for insurance, but to date the organisations I have contacted have been prepared to insure me a but have not been prepared to insure my girlfriend as she is an Indonesian citizen living in Indonesia).

      Hi Peter,

      Thanks for getting in touch. Unfortunately, the insurance brands in our panel either require the insured to be an Australian citizen or resident or have part of the journey either beginning or ending in Australia.

      All the best,

      Hi Manami,

      Thanks for your question. finder.com.au is a comparison service and not an insurer. How much you’ll be charged for a policy will depend on your age, destination and the amount of time you’ll be away. To compare policies from the providers in our panel, please head to the travel insurance homepage. There you will be able to enter your travel details into the comparison engine and compare all of the providers in our panel.

    Hi I have MS will this affect my travel insurance? Also if a claim is made while away, how long until we receive the money. Like if I have to go to hospital or see a doctor, will we get the money straight away.

      RichardAugust 27, 2015Staff

      Hi Jacinta,

      Thanks for your question. InsureandGo claim to consider all conditions so they may be able to provide you with cover. How long claims take to be processed will depend on the claim and the situation.

      Hi,

      Thanks for your question. InsureandGo claim to assess and consider all pre-existing medical conditions, no matter what they are or how recently they occurred. finder.com.au is a comparison service and not an insurer, and we do not have access to information concerning the affect of preexisting conditions on the cost of a policy.

    Hi do you cover pregnancy after 28 weeks pregnant and child birth? How much?

    • Staff
      RichardJune 30, 2015Staff

      Hi Nat,

      Thanks for your question. finder.com.au is a comparison service and not an insurer. If you are enquiring specifically about InureandGo, their policies provide cover up until you’re 32 weeks pregnant. If you would like to know the maximum weeks pregnant for the providers in our panel, please have a look at our travel insurance for pregnancy page.

      I hope this was helpful,
      Richard
