Do You Cover Pregnancy?

If you are pregnant and travelling, you need to take extra precautions. With 1Cover, you're covered in the following circumstances:

  • for single foetus pregnancies - up to and inclusive of the 24th week of gestation.
  • for multiple pregnancies - up to and inclusive of the 19th week of gestation.

If you have had complications of this pregnancy, you’ll need to complete medical screening.

We will assess your application and decide whether and to what extent we can offer you insurance for your pregnancy and/or journey.

Depending on the circumstances, we may decline to cover you, limit your cover and/or agree to provide cover for an additional premium. Any limitation on cover will be noted on your certificate of insurance.

It’s important that you tell us the circumstances of your pregnancy when you’re required, otherwise we have grounds to refuse your claim.

1Cover can't pay any medical expenses for:
  • Regular antenatal care;
  • Childbirth at any gestation; or
  • Care of the newborn child.
