What options are available?

Tick Travel Insurance Single Trip policy provides three levels of cover: Basic, Standard and Top.

Tick Basic Travel Insurance provides cover for:

  • Unlimited medical and hospital expenses outside of Australia
  • Loss, theft or damage to your personal belongings and baggage
  • Financial protection against trip disruption overseas
  • Personal liability cover of $1.5 million.

Moving up to a standard policy, the level of cover and the range of benefits offered both increase. In addition to unlimited overseas medical cover, this policy also offers:

  • A hospital cash allowance of up to $1,500
  • Cover for the loss and theft of travel documents
  • $5,000 of protection for cancellation fees and lost deposits
  • Travel delay cover
  • Higher limits for your personal belongings and baggage
  • Legal expenses cover
  • Rental vehicle excess waiver
  • Accident, disability and death
  • $1.5 million of liability cover.

As the name suggests, a Top Single Trip policy from Tick Travel Insurance offers comprehensive travel insurance, and includes cover for:

  • Unlimited overseas medical expenses
  • $20,000 cancellation cover
  • $7,500 of personal belongings and baggage cover
  • $3,000 of resumption of journey cover
  • Cover for hijacking
  • Legal expenses cover
  • Rental vehicle excess waiver
  • Accident, disability and death
  • $3 million of liability cover
  • Pet care costs.

What do these policies cover?

  • Medical and hospital costs. Unlimited cover is provided for your overseas emergency medical and hospital expenses, including ambulance transportation and medical repatriation to Australia if necessary.
  • Emergency costs. If you experience an emergency or your trip is disrupted while you are abroad, additional accommodation, transport and meals expenses you incur as a result can be covered.
  • Cancellations, curtailments and journey resumptions. When an emergency forces you to cancel your trip before you go away or cut it short while you’re overseas, Tick Travel Insurance policies can cover the money you will lose as a result. Journey resumption cover can also allow you to resume your trip at a later date.
  • Travel delay. When your pre-booked transport is delayed by 12 hours or more, your policy offers a benefit to cover essential costs such as food and drink.
  • Baggage and valuables. If your baggage and/or belongings are lost, stolen or damaged during your trip, the cost of their repair or replacement can be covered up to a certain limit.
  • Baggage delay. When your luggage is delayed by a carrier, you may receive an emergency cash allowance to help you purchase essential items like clothing and toiletries.
  • Natural disaster cover. Cover is provided for losses related to unexpected and extraordinary natural phenomena including floods, earthquakes, tsunamis and landslides.
  • Passports and money. Tick Travel Insurance offers cover if your passports, visas, travellers cheques or cash are lost, stolen or damaged on your trip.
  • Personal accident and loss of income. In addition to death and disability benefits, Tick will also provide loss of income cover if an injury suffered during your trip keeps you off work when you return to Australia.
  • Personal liability. Legal liability cover is provided, and can help when you are responsible for causing injury or property damage to a third party.
  • Rental vehicle excess waiver. This benefit can cover the cost of your rental car insurance excess if the car is stolen, crashed or damaged, up the relevant limits.

    Does the standard family cover, cover motorcycle accident?

    • finder Customer Care
      CharisseOctober 17, 2018Staff

      Hi Glenda,

      Thanks for reaching out to finder.

      Tick standard travel insurance policies do cover travelers riding two-wheeled or three-wheeled motor vehicle however there are certain requirements that must be met to be covered for this activity:

      -As the driver or passenger, you should be wearing a crash helmet at all times
      -As the driver, you should be holding a driver license appropriate for the country you are in. If you are using a motorcycle rated 125cc or higher, you must also hold a current and valid license for driving an equivalent rated motorcycle in Australia.

      You can also contact Tick insurance directly for further information about their travel insurance policies.

      I hope this helps.

      Hi Janette,

      Thanks for leaving a question on finder.

      If you are looking to print your policy but unable to, you can instead save the file in your computer and have it printed in a computer shop or a friend who has a printer. However, you can contact Tick insurance directly to request for this if you go to their website and speak to their customer service.

      Please send me a message if you need anything else. :)

    If my wife is traveling with me on this trip and I have included her into the system, can you explain what emergency companion cover relates to?

    • finder Customer Care
      JeniOctober 2, 2018Staff

      Hi Dave,

      Thank you for getting in touch with finder.

      Basically, your travel companion is anyone who helps you carry your bag up a flight of stairs, looks out for you and shares the wonderful experience of travelling. You and your wife can take out travel insurance cover under one policy so you have the same level of coverage. Emergency companion cover covers the cost of additional travel and accommodation expenses if your travelling companion is unable to continue her journey due to illness or injury.

      I hope this helps.

      Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any other enquiries.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

    What is meant by “Pet Care” and what does it cover?

    • finder Customer Care
      JeniMay 22, 2018Staff

      Hi Peter,

      Thank you for getting in touch with finder.

      As a friendly reminder, while we do not represent any company we feature on our pages, we can offer you general advice.

      Do you have pets that you leave at home while traveling?

      If your flight is delayed by more than 24 hours on your final flight home and your pet is in a kennel or cattery, they’ll cover vet fees if your pet is injured during that time and the additional boarding costs up to the limits in the policy.

      I hope this helps.

      Have a great day!

      Hello Karen,

      Thank you for reaching out to us for your query.
      It is understandable to want clarification on what you will actually be covered for with your travel insurance policy.

      Most insurance providers would include cover for hypertension
      Please visit this page to see your options.

      Depending on the provider, you may have to meet one or more of these conditions:
      * You were not hospitalised in the last 24 months
      * Your hypertension must be stable and managed by your doctor
      * You are not taking more than two medications for the condition
      * You must have no known heart or cardiovascular conditions
      * You must have not had any changes to your medication within the past 12 months
      * You have not been a smoker in the last 18 months
      * You must not be suffering any symptoms of, or be undergoing investigations into, your high blood pressure
      * You must not also suffer from diabetes
      * Your current blood pressure reading must be within acceptable ranges

      Ultimately, it will still be best if you get in touch with the insurer you have in mind to gain assurance and clarification on this.

      Hope this helped.

    My question is in regard to my 2 grandchildren who are travelling with us on a cruise for 3 days. We received insurance ourselves free through the company that the holiday was booked through but in their case it does not cover them. I have used Tick before as you could probably see from our records and wonder if you can assist us in this regard. They are 4 and 7 year olds and we leave on Friday 28th April and return early Monday morning 3 nights in total. The ship does not go into port it is at sea for the duration of the trip. Look forward to your comments and your assistance.
