In the case of the Annual Multi Trip Plan, trip(s) means any travel up to 45 days in duration between the departure date and return date shown on your Certificate of Insurance. Each trip must:
- Start or end at your home in Australia, and
- Be to a destination of at least 200km from your home in Australia, and
- Include travel by either pre-paid scheduled public transport or hire car or include at least one night of pre-booked publicly available accommodation.

Please note: a 72-hour waiting period applies from the purchase date before the policy benefits becomes active, except for medical expenses, medical evacuation and repatriation costs arising from a sudden injury during the 72-hour waiting period. If you are already overseas and your current policy is due to expire, please purchase through the Travel Insurance Saver website at least 3 days before your current policy is going to expire to ensure that you have continuous cover. However, if you have an existing nib travel insurance policy that will end whilst you are travelling, and you buy a new policy before the period of insurance ends under your existing policy (at 11.59pm AET on the return date shown on your Certificate of Insurance), the waiting period will not apply to that new policy, provided that there is no gap between the periods of insurance.
