Please see more information about travel insurance and cancellation cover.

  • For any damage, loss or theft of your personal effects or luggage, you should report the incident to a relevant authority within 24 hours (police, hotel, airline, cruise company, tour guide etc) and obtain a copy of the report. If you're unwell and your ailments are minor, such as those that only require a GP visit, you may choose to visit a doctor and pay for your visit, then submit a claim at your convenience from overseas or once your return home.
