You’re Our Number One Priority, 24/7

We pride ourselves on delivering personal, transparent, and helpful assistance - 24/7, 365 days a year - no matter where you are in the world. Whether you need to make a claim on a lost phone or whether you’re experiencing a serious crisis overseas, your safety and satisfaction is our number one priority.

Help when you really need it

The importance of travel insurance is obvious in an emergency. We’ll be there if you end up in hospital, and in the event you require medical treatment that can’t be administered locally, 1Cover will make sure you’re evacuated to the nearest medical facility.

In many countries, medical treatment, hospitalisation, or evacuation isn’t the responsibility of the government. You need an upfront guarantee of payment from your insurer or its assistance provider. That's where 1Cover comes in. 

A Policy For Every Traveller

We provide different levels of cover from budget to comprehensive, although  24/7 medical assistance is available for all our customers. 


Some of the many benefits included with 1Cover’s comprehensive policies include:

  • - Unlimited medical for overseas trips

  • - 24/7 emergency assistance whilst overseas

  • - Luggage and personal effects cover
