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
    Your bags are packed, you’ve got your tickets and you’re ready to head off on your international getaway. But have you got the most important thing of all—travel insurance? Travel cover is a necessity for any holiday, no matter whether you’re planning a quiet week away or an around-the-world odyssey.
    Probus travel insurance is not currently available via finder. You can visit their website at www.probussouthpacific.org for more information or compare alternative options available below.

    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.

    Any number of unexpected events can ruin your holiday plans. You could get injured or fall ill, your luggage could get lost, your wallet could get stolen and disaster can strike at any time. With this in mind, it makes perfect sense to have the appropriate level of travel insurance cover in place to protect your financial and emotional wellbeing if something goes wrong. As the old saying goes, if you can’t afford travel insurance you can’t afford to travel.

    Probus South Pacific Limited is an association for active members of the community, and for those no longer working full time, to join together in clubs for a new lease of life. It offers many benefits to its members, one of which is Probus Travel Insurance, which lets you travel the world safe in the knowledge that you are covered if things go wrong.

    Who is Probus South Pacific Limited?

    Probus aims to advance intellectual and cultural interests among its members, and provides regular social interaction and activities allowing people to expand their interests and make new friends.

    Probus traces its origins back to the United Kingdom in the 1960s, when two social clubs were formed. Both clubs were formed to meet the social and intellectual needs of retired businessmen, so they soon joined forces to become the Probus club. The first Probus club in the South Pacific region formed in the mid-1970s, and today Probus is a global movement with a presence in some 23 countries. Probus clubs in Australia and New Zealand are administered by Probus South Pacific Limited, based in Parramatta, NSW.

    As well as a range of activities, Probus South Pacific Limited also offers travel insurance to its members. Whether they’re travelling with the club or on their own, Probus members know they have the right cover in place to protect against the unexpected.

    Probus Travel Insurance Policy Benefits

    Probus South Pacific Travel Insurance policies feature the following benefits:

    • Personal Accident and Sickness Cover. If you suffer an injury or sickness while travelling, your insurance will pay you an agreed lump sum or weekly benefit.
    • Kidnap and Ransom/Extortion Cover. This policy feature will ensure you are reimbursed for any ransom/extortion money if you’re the victim of extortion or a kidnapping while on holiday.
    • Hijack and Detention. Your Probus Travel Insurance policy will pay out an agreed daily amount while a person covered under the policy is subject to a hijack or detention lasting more than 12 hours.
    • Medical and Additional Expenses and Cancellation and Curtailment Expenses. This feature includes cover for medical and additional expenses if a covered person dies or suffers an injury or sickness while on holiday, as well as cover for other expenses arising from the death, injury or sickness—ie, additional travel arrangements, forfeited travel costs, and other out-of-pocket expenses.
    • ACE Assistance. Policyholders have access to emergency assistance while on a journey.
    • Loss of deposits. If unforeseen circumstances, such as illness or job loss, force you to cancel your trip, your Probus Travel Insurance policy will reimburse you for travel and accommodation expenses you would otherwise be unable to recoup.
    • Baggage/Business Property, Electronic Equipment, Deprivation of Baggage and Money/Travel Documents. If items such as your baggage, electronic equipment, money or travel documents are lost, stolen or damaged, your policy will provide cover.
    • Alternative Employee/Resumption of Assignment Expenses. Your policy will cover a range of expenses if you die, fall sick or are injured, or if you make a claim for Cancellation and Curtailment Expenses.
    • Personal Liability. This benefit provides cover if you become legally liable to pay damages to another person. Certain legal expenses are also covered.
    • Rental Vehicle Excess Waiver. If your rental car is stolen, damaged or involved in an accident, Probus Travel Insurance will cover your rental vehicle excess. This cover only applies for trips in Australia greater than 50km.
    • Extra Territorial Workers’ Compensation. Probus travel cover indemnifies the policyholder for certain non-statutory workers compensation benefits payable in the covered circumstances.
    • Missed Transport Connection. If circumstances beyond your control (ie a delayed flight) cause you to miss a transport connection, your insurance will cover the extra expenses you incur to use alternative public transport services to get to your destination on time.
    • Overbooked Flight. If you are denied boarding on a confirmed scheduled flight due to overbooking and no alternative transport is made available within eight hours of the scheduled departure, your policy will cover certain costs.
    • Political & Natural Disaster Evacuation. If a major natural disaster strikes wherever you are travelling and you need to be evacuated to Australia or the nearest safe place, Probus Travel Insurance will cover the cost.

        Hi Jean,

        Thank you for your question.

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

        I’m afraid you might need to directly get in touch with Probus Travel Insurance as it is not currently one of the brands in our panel of travel insurers.

        If you would like to learn more about cruise travel insurance, you can read more about them through our cruise travel insurance home page.

        Open that link and on that page, there are insurers listed on our comparison table. Go through our table and see which insurer would best meet your needs.

        I hope this helps.

        Cheers,
        Zubair
