What are my travel insurance options with NRMA?

Here are your travel insurance options with NRMA:

  • Domestic Comprehensive Plan. Even if you're only travelling within Australia, you may still find yourself in need of assistance. Domestic Comprehensive insurance offers you a choice of cover for cancellations, rental car insurance excess, luggage and personal effects.
  • Domestic Cancellation Plan. You can also get cover for cancellations only. You can choose how much you want to be covered for and it lets you get your money back if you have to cancel your trip due to reasons beyond your control.
  • International Essentials Plan. Heading overseas is a costly endeavor, however that doesn't mean cover should be expensive too. International Essentials insurance takes care of cancellations, overseas medical, hospital and dental expenses, luggage and personal effects.
  • International Comprehensive Plan. If any trouble strikes on your adventure, you can rest easy with NRMA's International Comprehensive, covering you for everything from dental and medical emergencies, cancellations and lost luggage, personal effects and incidentals.
  • Multi-Trip Travel Plans. Planning more than one trip? If you're on the road throughout the year, Multi-Trip Insurance may be perfect for you. Available with the International and Domestic Comprehensive plans, Multi-Trip covers any trip taken within a twelve-month period.

What else can I add on to my cover?

If you need extra cover, you can increase your policy cover with these additional options:

  • Cancel for any reason cover. This is available with the International Comprehensive, International Essentials and Domestic Comprehensive Plan. It lets you cancel for reasons not usually covered by the policy, including if you haven't had your leave approved at work, but want to book your holiday now, a friend or relative is in a nursing home or you've had an unexpected household expense which means you can no longer afford to travel.
  • Luggage item limits. NRMA prescribes maximum limits for the value of individual items like cameras, laptops, tablets, smartphones, and golf clubs. You have the option to increase these limits individually.
  • Premium luggage cover. If you've bought luggage items within the last 2 years and you provide a receipt, NRMA will not deduct depreciation from those items with this add-on.
  • Increase rental car insurance excess cover. You can increase the level of rental car insurance excess cover by $1,000.
  • Motorcycle/moped riding. If you plan to ride a moped or a motorcycle with engine capacity of 200cc or less you can pay an additional premium and get suitable cover.
  • Snow skiing, snowboarding and snowmobiling. Pay an additional premium and you can get cover for skiing and snowboarding on-piste.

More about NRMA

TThe Australian National Roads Association, which went on to become National Roads and Motorists' Association (NRMA), began operations in 1920. The original aim of the organisation was to achieve reasonable and just legislation for funding and improving roads. NRMA Insurance traces its origins back to 1925, and it reestablished itself as a private mutual company in 1926. It became a sub-agency of Lloyd's of London, and started offering household insurance alongside motor insurance cover.

NRMA Motoring and Services and NRMA Insurance are now two completely independent bodies, with both agreeing to use the same name and brand.

The formation of IAG came about as a result of the demutualisation of NRMA Insurance in 2000, and NRMA Insurance Group Limited rechristened itself as Insurance Australia Group Limited in January 2002.

NRMA Insurance provides a range of insurance covers to its customers in New South Wales, Queensland, Australian Capital Territory and Tasmania.

If you're considering turning to NRMA for travel cover, you can look forward to the following benefits:

  • Value for money
  • 24-hour emergency assistance
  • Global presence
  • Straightforward claims process
  • Wide range of plans
