We have COVID-19 Travel Insurance Cover

Apr 9, 2021 2:33:08 PM / by HealthCarePlus

With the Trans Tasman bubble opening up soon it's a good idea to get travel insurance and even better if it has some COVID-19 cover. 

And we have exactly that with our travel insurance offer from Cover-More, our travel insurance partner.  

Even though it won't cover you in the event that either the Australian or New Zealand government calls for border closures, it will cover you, if you or a member of your family is diagnosed with COVID-19 on your travels or you're placed into quarantine due to contact with someone who has COVID-19 and you cannot travel.   

Buy a new Single Trip travel insurance policy on the 'YourCover' Plan and we can give you that extra peace of mind and greater confidence to book that trip to Australia you’ve been longing to take.    

 

Book with confidence - What's covered:

 

1. Cover for your COVID-19-related medical costs#
  • if you’re diagnosed with COVID-19 by a qualified medical practitioner during your journey and includes cover for costs resulting from medical treatment and ambulance transportation you require when suffering from COVID-19. 

2. Cover for a number of COVID-19-related travel cancellation and amendment costs*  
  • Your illness, if you are diagnosed with COVID-19 and cannot travel
  • The illness of your non-travelling relative or business partner, if you need to amend or cancel your journey because your relative or business partner is diagnosed with COVID-19 and the treating doctor confirms the level of infection is life-threatening
  • Your travelling companion’s illness, if your travelling companion is diagnosed with COVID-19
  • If the person you were due to stay with is diagnosed with COVID-19, and you can no longer stay with them, cover will be provided for alternative accommodation (benefit limits apply)
  • If you are deemed an essential health care worker under New Zealand’s COVID-19 rules
    (i.e. a pharmacist, nurse, doctor, paramedic or other health care professional) and your leave is revoked by your employer due to COVID-19 related reasons
  • If your prepaid accommodation is shutdown for deep cleaning due to a COVID-19 outbreak on the premises
  • If your prepaid holiday activity is closed due to COVID-19, you can claim a refund on the unused, prepaid, non-refundable tickets (e.g. theme park or ski venue)

3. Cover for Covid-19 additional expenses*#

  • Cover for additional accommodation and transport expenses if you are quarantined in Australia because you are diagnosed with Covid-19 or have been directed by a local public health authority into a period of quarantine because they have classified you as having contact with a person diagnosed with COVID-19 (including if that person is your travelling companion) 
  • Cover for additional transport if you are required to return home because your non-travelling relative or business partner is diagnosed with COVID-19 and the treating doctor confirms in writing the level of infection is life threatening
  • Cover for alternative accommodation if the person you were due to stay with has COVID-19 (benefit limits apply)
  • Cover for alternative accommodation if your prepaid accommodation is shutdown for deep cleaning due to a COVID-19 outbreak on the premises
