Family Travel Insurance Benefits

Whether you're travelling to a new country or road tripping around New Zealand, 1Cover Travel Insurance has outstanding travel travel insurance for you and your family at an affordable price. No matter what policy you select, your kids or grandkids are covered for no extra cost (so long as they’re under 21, travelling with you the whole time, and not in full-time employment), meaning you’ll have more spending money for your family trip!

 

  • Travelling with your kids and grandkids? They’re covered at no extra cost. We’ll only charge you for each adult on your policy.
  • Planning to take some valuables on your trip? We cover up to $15,000 worth of luggage and personal effects for every adult on your policy. All types of families are looked after.

  • Whether you’re travelling overseas or visiting family or friends within Australia, we have both domestic and international plans to suit you.

  • Don’t worry if an unexpected disaster affects your trip. We cover unlimited cancellation and lost deposits.
  • We know how important your family is. That is why we have up to $50,000 worth of Family Emergency cover.

  • Heading to the snow or taking a cruise with the family? Our add-ons ensure you and your family are properly covered during your adventure.

FAQs About Family Travel Insurance

  • What Is A Dependant?
  • A dependant is an adult traveller's child or grandchild, who is under the age of 19, and who is not in full time employment. In order to be classed as a dependant, the child must be travelling with their parent or grandparent at all times. If you have a child under 16 years of age that requires a single adult policy you will need to contact the call centre to discuss your options. Whether it’s two adults, multiple adults, or just a single adult travelling, we allow for an unlimited amount of dependants under all policies. 

  • What Are The Benefits Of Having Travel Insurance?
  • When you travel it's all about the new and unknown which unfortunately means you never know what could go wrong. Things like medical emergencies while overseas could cost $50,000+, and then there's lost luggage, stolen belongings and delayed flights which are more expenses on top of an already costly holiday. Travel is unpredictable and travel insurance is there to help provide you peace of mind that when the unexpected happens, we'll be there to help out. We advise you to read the Product Disclosure Statement to make sure this product is right for you. If you have any questions please call our friendly call centre on 1300 368 344.

  • I'm Going On A Cruise Around New Zealand, What Travel Insurance Do I Need?
  • Once you're out on open water, this is classed as overseas and as such you will not be covered by the public health system. You will need to select our Cruise Pack add-on, selecting the New Zealand Cruise region. This add-on is available with Comprehensive policies. This ensures you are covered for full medical coverage whilst on board, as well as cancellations, missed departures, lost luggage, and more.

  • Can I Apply To Extend My Travel Insurance Policy?
  • Yes. You must extend your policy before it expires (11.59pm NZST/NZDT). To extend your policy, you simply need to call the call centre on 0800 000 333, email us at [email protected] or speak to a call centre representative via online chat. One of our trained travel insurance specialists will assist you in the policy extension. You'll be issued with a quote for the policy extension period. And you'll need to process a payment for this extended period. Please note there may be instances where a policy extension is not available

  • What Happens If I come Home Early? 
  • Your policy covers the full duration of your trip. There are no refunds should you come home earlier than planned.
