There are many scenarios 1Cover Travel Insurance covers you for, but just like most insurance policies, there are some things you likely won't be covered for. Here are a few of the main ones.
Disappointing accommodation, misleading brochures, the food on the plane was inedible, your room was noisy, staff were rude, fellow guests were annoying and the entertainment was terrible. We don't cover loss of enjoyment so make sure you do your research and that you make the most out of it.
Sex, drugs and alcohol - they seem like fun at the time but while away you need to behave in a way that protects yourself to be covered. Think carefully about the decisions you make. If you're intoxicated or taking drugs (that haven't been prescribed), you pick up a sexually transmitted disease, or you're riding a motorcycle/moped/scooter and you do not have a current New Zealand licence to do so (or the driver doesn’t have a valid license for the country you’re in) and your claim results from these actions, then we won’t be able to cover you.
We cover many adventure activities, But there are some where the risk is just too extreme. These activities include: parachuting, hang gliding, BASE jumping, gliding, mountaineering or rock climbing using ropes or climbing equipment. We aren't saying you can't participate in these activities, but if something goes wrong when you do, you won't be able to claim.
Leaving your things laying around isn’t a good idea in nearly every part of the world. If something gest stolen because you didn’t take due care and you left something unattended/unsupervised, then we won’t cover this.
Incorrectly organising your trip isn't something we cover, so double check everything before booking and ensure you have the right documents for travel.
For obvious reasons we can't help you out here. Always adhere to local laws.
If a government or other official body have issued a specific "Do Not travel" or "Reconsider your need to travel" warning and you go anyway, you may be putting yourself in very serious danger and we will not cover any claim you make relating to this.
