International Comprehensive policies provide cover for medical and dental, trip cancellation, baggage protection and many other benefits for Australian residents regardless of age and for non residents under 70 years of age at the time the certificate of insurance is issued travelling worldwide.
Most amateur sports are covered, including cycling, surfing, bungee jumping, parasailing, white water rafting and scuba diving provided you hold an open water diving licence. Offering 24/7 worldwide emergency assistance, unlimited medical evacuation and repatriation, protection for luggage and personal effects (refer schedule of benefits for full details of limits), rental vehicle expenses and automatic cover for financially dependants under 25 years of age, most needs are fully catered for with International Comprehensive travel insurance.
Whilst investigating the inclusions it is arguably more important to identify exclusions. The Product Disclosure Statement will state all applicable terms, conditions, exclusions and definitions.
If you are going on a trip, the most important thing you can pack is Easy Travel Insurance! You only have to open a newspaper, turn on a television or surf the net to hear of passengers being stranded due to natural disasters, bad weather, security issues, flight crews on strike, or even iconic airlines going into receivership. Whilst these risks are very real, just think how even a carrier misplacing your baggage could throw your travel plans into disarray leaving you with no change of clothes or toiletries.
