What additional cover is available?

  • Winter sports cover. This option provides up to $1,250 of cover when your winter sports equipment is lost, stolen or damaged. Cover is also included for winter sports equipment hire, lift passes, ski packs, piste closure and avalanches.
  • Additional specified items cover. If you add this optional extra to your Tick Travel Insurance policy, you can take out up to $4,000 of cover for a single valuable item, or up to $6,000 of cover for combined items.
  • Natural disaster cover. This add-on may cover you for cancelling your trip before departure, having to cut your trip short and additional emergency expenses in the event of a natural disaster. Benefits vary between the different levels of cover. If you want cover for all though, opt for the Top cover.

Does Tick Travel Insurance cover cruises?

Yes. There's no need to buy a special "cruise add-on" because all of Tick Travel Insurance policies automatically cover you when you're at sea. That means you're automatically covered if the following were to happen:

You have a medical emergency and need to be airlifted from sea to the nearest hospital

You get gastro and the on-board medical centre charges you a fortune

A cyclone pummels your next destination and you have to cancel your pre-paid activities

You miss your departure because of a car accident on the way to the port so you need to fly to the next port

Note that Tick Travel Insurance does not offer niche cruise features that you might find on a specialty cruise policy or a specially designed cruise add-on. Therefore you won't find features like cabin confinement cover, which would pay you a daily stipend if cruise authorities confine you to your cabin, or formal attire cover, which would pay to repair or replace expensive formal attire or pay you to rent some if yours is lost or damaged.

What are the general exclusions?

Your Tick Travel Insurance claim may not be paid if:

  • You are aware of a medical condition that could lead to a claim but do not notify your insurer when you take out cover, or are awaiting treatment for an undiagnosed condition
  • Any insured person on the policy is travelling against the advice of a medical practitioner
  • Any insured person on the policy has in the last five years suffered from or received medical advice, treatment or medication for a heart condition, blood circulatory condition, diabetes, stroke, brain haemorrhage, epilepsy, anxiety or depression
  • It arises from your suicide, attempted suicide or deliberately putting yourself in danger
  • It arises from the use of alcohol or drugs
  • It is caused by war, riot, civil unrest or industrial action
  • It arises due to your travel through a region for which the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has issued a travel advisory
  • It is for consequential loss of any kind
  • It arises because of you being involved in any illegal or criminal act
  • It arises because of you taking part in missionary work, humanitarian work or manual labour associated with any business or trade
  • It arises from you being involved in any form of racing other than on foot
  • It arises because you fail to get the right vaccinations or inoculations for travel
  • It arises due to a government authority seizing, withholding or destroying anything of yours
  • It is for a tour being cancelled due to insufficient numbers
  • It arises due to errors or omissions in your travel arrangements made by you, your travel agent or anyone acting on your behalf

    I’m going on a cruise to New Zealand. I declared my pre-existing medical condition but they didn’t charge me a premium for it but I got a medical number from Tick. Is this correct?

      JoshuaOctober 29, 2019Staff

      Hi Vera,

      Thanks for getting in touch with Finder. I hope all is well with you. 😃

      Regarding your question, Tick Travel Insurance generally assesses pre-existing medical conditions on a case by case basis. They might have considered your condition as mild and don’t need additional premium to get covered.

      If you need to confirm with them, you can also get in touch with Tick just to be sure.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

      Have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Joshua

      Hi Patrica,

      Thanks for getting in touch with Finder. I hope all is well with you. 😃

      I’m sorry to hear about your need to cancel your holiday trip.

      Regarding your question, if you are asking if you can cancel your Tick Travel Insurance policy, the answer is yes. However, please note that you need to cancel your policy within the 14 day cooling off period following any purchase.

      However, if you are asking if you can cancel your trip and get a refund from your bookings, that would depend on your provider. Best is to get in touch with your provider in this case. Moreover, if you cancel your trip, Tick Travel Insurance policies can cover the money you will lose as a result.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

      Have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Joshua

    I have Tick Travel insurance for my trip to North America, Central America and Hong Kong. I have gone to a travel specialist doctor for advice and prescription medicine associated with this trip. Can I claim any of this back on travel insurance?

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      JeniJune 19, 2019Staff

      Hi Peter,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      Most standard travel insurance policies do not cover loss or theft of prescription drugs. If you’ll be taking regular medication during your trip, you generally won’t be able to find cover for them as the drugs are for a pre-existing condition. However, if you are hospitalised overseas and are prescribed medication for a new ailment, you may be able to make a claim under the overseas medical section of your policy.

      Please contact Tick Travel directly regarding your prescription drugs.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Jeni

      Hi Georgene,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      The quotes are for the number of travellers you entered under the “Who is travelling?”. If you enter just your age then the quote will just be for one traveller – you.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

    Do you cover natural disaster such as volcanoes. I understand that some insurers do not cover active volcanoes but what about the non active ones?

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      JeniMarch 21, 2019Staff

      Hi Tania,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      As with other natural disasters, volcanoes are typically included in natural disaster cover but you need to purchase the policy before the eruption becomes a “known event.” Experts can detect tremors months before a volcano actually erupts and many insurers will consider it a known event at the first possible detection. So it is important to purchase your travel insurance as soon as you’ve booked your trip.

Once you have decided which to go with, please click on the Go to site button and you’ll be redirected to Tick’s official page where you may learn more about their products and even start applying for a travel insurance.

      I hope this helps.

      Hi Annie,

      Thanks for getting in touch! You have to put the countries you’ll be in when you add the countries and it cannot be just South Pacific Islands. Hope this clarifies!
