More about Travel Insuranz

Travel Insuranz is 100% Australian-owned and its policies are underwritten by one of the world’s specialist insurance brands, Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance Company. It has provided travel insurance to more than two million travellers and have paid out more than $30 million in claims.

Travel Insuranz endeavours to pay all valid and fully documented claims within ten business days. It offers streamlined online processing and round-the-clock medical assistance. Customers also get a 15-day money-back guarantee provided your trip hasn’t started and you haven’t yet made a claim.

What policies can I choose from?

Travel Insuranz has three main levels of cover from which to choose. Each successive level of cover contains all of the benefits of the one before it plus a few additional benefits. The amount covered for each benefit generally increases from level to level.

  • Classic. The most basic level of cover.
  • Premier. Contains all the benefits of Classic with a few additional benefits and higher benefit amounts for most items.
  • Premier Plus. Contains all the same benefits of Premiere, but with higher benefit amounts for some items.
  • Deluxe. Contains all the benefits of Classic and Premier with a few additional benefits and higher benefit amounts for most items.

All four levels of cover can be applied to one of two travel situations through Insuranz:

  • Single Trip. This covers a single trip of up to 365 days in duration, including one-way travel.
  • Annual Multi Trip. If you travel in and out of Australia often, this will cover one year’s worth of unlimited trips. Individual trips have a maximum duration of up to 93 days based on the purpose of travel. It also has some additional perks such as 23 days of of snow cover and coverage for domestic trips if they meet certain criteria.

Annual Multi Trip cover is basically Single Trip cover with an additional premium and added snow and domestic travel cover. Otherwise the benefits and benefit amounts are exactly the same whether you are on a Single Trip or Multi Trip policy.

Each person’s travel situation is unique, so you’ll need to read the PDS to understand whether it:

  • Covers what you need it to cover
  • Requires additional premiums for special circumstances (such as snow sports or adventure sports)
  • Has exclusions and/or limitations related to your specific travel arrangements

Advantages of going with Travel Insuranz

Travel Insuranz tries to save you money on travel insurance by cutting overhead costs and limiting their risk. To keep prices affordable, Travel Insuranz:

  • Only operates online, which not only saves money on expensive call centres, but also means you can organise your cover almost anytime, anywhere.
  • Does not provide cover for travellers over 65; a group that is more likely to generate expensive claims.

While most queries need to be lodged online, Travel Insuranz does have a phone service for emergency situations so you’re not left waiting.

For less urgent online queries like changing your details or requesting a quote, Travel Insuranz secures your communications with 128 bit SSL to encrypt data transferred between your browser and its server.

  • Baggage and personal effects. You are covered (after making reasonable allowance for wear, tear and depreciation) for loss, theft or damage to your personal effects and valuables.
  • Personal money and loss of passport. You are covered for theft of your personal money and theft, loss or damage to passport and visas.

      Hi JP,

      Thanks for getting in touch with finder and I’m sorry to hear about your experience. For sure this is disappointing.

      Nevertheless, you’ve mentioned that you’ve lost your passport. With Travel Insuranz, under Deluxe policy, they cover $1,250 for your lost passport. They also cover $3,000 if you make a claim for the Resumption of Trip. Please note though that there are specific conditions you have to meet before you can make a claim. You can find these conditions outlined in your PDS with Travel Insuranz.

      I would suggest that you contact Travel Insuranz directly to confirm your eligibility.

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

      Have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Joshua
