    Travel Alert

    You can only travel to your destination if there is no travel ban in place or if you have an exemption. Also, while a destination has a 'Do Not Travel' warning in place for COVID-19, policies won't cover a loss arising from COVID-19 in that destination. See the latest government advice at smartraveller.gov.au and ;health.gov.au, and check the travel insurance alerts.

    Coronavirus has changed travel for everyone and even though you might be ready to hit the road (or sky) when it comes to travel insurance, it is more important than ever to know exactly what you are and are not covered for before you go

    Is there any cover for Coronavirus-related events on nib's travel insurance plans and what are the benefits?

    Cover for some coronavirus-related events is available on all nib’s travel insurance plans (excl. Cancellation and Additional Expenses Plan), but the types of benefits and benefit limits vary.

    nib would like to cover every coronavirus-related scenario that a traveller can think of, that is not what travel insurance is designed to do, so read the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) for Australian residents, or Policy Document for New Zealand residents carefully for the full terms, conditions, limits and exclusions so that you know what is, and is not, covered.

    Overseas Medical Benefit: If you contract coronavirus while on your trip, all of nib’s International travel insurance plans can offer cover for overseas medical expenses.

    Medical evacuation and repatriation: All nib travel insurance plans include cover for medical evacuation and repatriation if nib decides it is medically necessary, up to the relevant benefit limit.

    Coronavirus Travel Costs: nib’s Coronavirus Travel Costs benefit is available on the Comprehensive Travel Plan, Australian Travel plan and Annual Multi-Trip Plan and can provide cover for several coronavirus-related events. It includes cover for quarantine expenses and trip cancellation if you are diagnosed with coronavirus.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What do I do if I get Coronavirus (COVID-19) before my trip?

    Do not delay the cancellation of your plans. If you know you need to cancel, contact your providers as soon as possible to maximise the opportunity of refunds from your providers.

    What do I do if I get Coronavirus (COVID-19) on my trip?

    Contact nib’s Emergency Assistance team. Utilising a global network of medical providers, the team will connect you with local medical facilities. They can also assist by getting in contact with friends and family where needed.
     
    Always keep receipts for any payments you make and wherever possible, request written reports from providers or local authorities.

    Rest assured that if you incur medical expenses overseas for an event covered under the policy, including if you contract Coronavirus (COVID-19) and it is not related to an ‘existing medical condition’ (as defined in the PDS), then coverage is offered up to the Medical benefit limit. Just make sure you contact nib’s Emergency Assistance team so they can help.

    The Coronavirus Travel Costs benefit (for other non-medical coronavirus related events, where included on the plan you have selected) has a limit of $2,500 limit for a single policy (and $5,000 for a family policy); this is separate to the benefit limit available for medical expenses Incurred Overseas.
