Travel Insurance Claims



Make a claim

We are temporarily ceasing sales of Travel Insurance

These are unprecedented times and many industries are feeling the impact of COVID-19 - especially the Travel Industry. Following the advice of the Australian Government for Australians not to travel overseas, and the decisions of a number of Australian State and Territory Governments to impose travel and other restrictions, Allianz Global Assistance is temporarily ceasing the sale of new domestic and international Travel Insurance policies effective from Friday 27 March 2020.

There may be other insurance options available to suit your requirements; please refer to the Insurance Council of Australia website for a list of alternative providers.


COVID-19 and Travel Advice Warning Update

Our Travel Insurance policies do not cover claims related to COVID-19. In addition, if you travel to a country where the Australian Government has issued an advice or warning of “Reconsider your need to travel” or “Do not travel”, then your claim may not be covered, even if it arises from an event unrelated to COVID-19. Please check travel advisories on Smartraveller for up to date information.

If you are looking for information about the impact of COVID-19 on travel insurance, read our FAQs. Refer to your Product Disclosure Statement for cover details.

A standard excess is the amount which will be deducted from any claim paid to you under the sections of your policy to which an excess applies. Some policies allow for a standard excess to be increased (which lowers the premium you have to pay) or decreased (which increases your upfront premium). You will be advised which options are available to you at the time you purchase your policy.
Medical cover under this policy ends upon safely repatriating home to Australia, from which point the local healthcare system will provide you with any further treatment you require.
