The question on eveyones' lips...Do I need to buy travel insurance as my credit card offers free cover? Find out here...
Most travellers are well aware of the need to purchase travel insurance for family holidays, business trips or if we visit family and friends, but what we often overlook is the need for protection for our kids, students and school groups when they travel for school trips, excursions or holidays both within Australia and overseas.
Each and every school in every state of Australia is responsible for the safety of students and teachers but the insurances that are carried to protect your children in the school and playground usually do not extend to external trips and activities. This means if your children are heading out on one of the many school organised trips to the zoo, museums, art centres, Parliament House, bushwalking, skiing or other outdoor activities they need the protection you only get from a Toursafe or School Excursion group policy bought to you by Easy Travel Insurance.
No matter where the school is based in Australia and no matter where the adventure takes them within Australia, or if they are lucky enough to visit one of our neighbouring countries or even further afield, QBE Toursafe school group and school excursion policies are specifically designed to give superior and specific cover for the needs of students, teachers, schools, colleges, universities and other educational facilities.
Pricing is simple and very cost effective and available on page 10 of the CS14 Toursafe School Groups for students and adults up to 70 years of age on overseas and Australian tours or trips; and for travellers of any age on Australian excursions up to 12 days duration in the schedule of benefits in the SE24 School Excursion
Or if you prefer, you can obtain a quote for your school trip by sending the trip details, including destination, dates of travel, number of students and number of adults, usually a minimum of 10 students and 1 adult, to Easy Travel Insurance and we will send you pricing and all the information you need to secure quick and easy cover and real peace of mind.
The management of a group policy is as easy as ABC! The simple application form on the last page of the Toursafe School Groups or School Excursion brochure must be filled out with the trip dates and destination and the name & dates of birth for each traveller and the form must be signed by a parent or guardian for all travellers under the age of 18, or you can download an editable PDF version of the Easy Travel Insurance School Group Application Form
You can then scan and email all the forms to firstname.lastname@example.org or send by mail to PO Box 1921, Oxenford, Queensland. 4210
Your protection begins as soon as we receive your forms and we will return a group policy certificate of insurance and a tax invoice by email for ease of payment. Payment must be made by cheque or direct deposit within 14 days or before travel commences, whichever comes first.
Protection is available with QBE Toursafe School Groups and School Excursion policies for some or all of the benefits listed below depending on the policy selected.
