location pin

world

Annual Multi-trip

Designed for those frequent travellers. If you know you'll be on the move for the next 12 months, this could save money and time.

Additional cover options available

For more flexibility, Medibank offers extra cover for your specific needs. You can add these options right after you select your policy type.

  • Add Winter sports cover. For those who are skiing, snowboarding or snowmobiling on their trip. Protect yourself so the expenses don't snowball if you get into an accident.
  • Add motorcycle/moped riding. Cover if you're a rider or plan to be a pillion passenger on a motorcycle/moped while you're travelling. This will cover your medical expenses if you get into an accident but it may not cover the damage of someone else's property.
  • Increase rental car insurance excess. Rental car excess is already included with the international comprehensive and domestic policies, however, if the excess charged by the car hire company exceeds your allowance, you may want to increase your limit.
  • Increase luggage cover. If you are travelling with expensive things such as a camera, laptop or jewellery, make sure that the included value is enough by checking the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS). If not, you can always add more.

Am I covered for cruising?

Cruise travel insurance is available and included for free with an international comprehensive plan, domestic plan and annual multi-trip. While it is automatically included, just be mindful that it covers medical expenses and air ambulance evacuation from the ship only.

If you need more specific cover for things such as formal attire delay and missed shore excursions, check out our other partners that offer cruise travel insurance.

    I had a stent put in the heart. Am I eligible for travel insurance?

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      MaiApril 21, 2019Staff

      Hi Paul,

      Thank you for reaching out to Finder.

      Medibank does not list heart conditions as part of their insurance coverage. You may want to check Travel insurance for heart conditions to compare insurers who have coverage on heart conditions, including those who have stents.

      Please make sure to read through the insurance policies prior to application to guarantee that your condition is covered.

      Hope this helps! 😊

      Kind Regards,
      Mai

    Hi I was wondering if I would be covered as a volunteer and if I ride a scooter?

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      RichardJanuary 10, 2017Staff

      Hi Breanna,

      Thanks for getting in touch. Medibank is not currently part of the panel of insurance brands we compare, so you will need to contact Medibank directly about its cover conditions. You may find our guides to travel insurance for volunteers and motorcycle travel insurance helpful.

      All the best,
      Richard

      Hi Robyn,

      Thanks for your question. Pre-existing conditions are handled on a case-by-case basis. So, whether or not you’ll have cover will depend on your insurer and the severity of your condition.

      I hope this was helpful,
