Travel Insurance to New Zealand

Planning a trip to New Zealand and you’re hunting for travel insurance? Travel Insurance Saver offers a variety of policies that will be perfect for your holiday. Whether it be a cruise or a hiking expedition, we can provide competitive coverage for your trip.

Some holidays will have people looking at things from the relative safety of the sidewalk; however, if you’re travelling to New Zealand, chances are you’ll be immersing yourself in the great outdoors. New Zealand is one of the most beautiful, and one of the most travelled to countries on earth. Famous as the filming location of The Lord of the Rings, New Zealand can often times feel as if it’s a landscape taken from a fantasy realm. 

New Zealand offers hikes across many of its famous foothills and mountains, rafting down rivers and rapids, horse riding through great plains, and much more. A good idea of what you may do if you head over is the 2 – 4-day hiking expedition on the Routeburn Track in the South Island. This track has it all, and you can start and stop at various locations along the path. There are strenuous sections and more difficult, mountainous sections. This is one example of what you might be doing Aotearoa, and one reason you will want to purchase a travel insurance policy from a reliable provider. 

There are a number of travel insurance policies available to you should you decide you want to travel to insurance. There is a lot of variety on the internet, but it’s important you look for some simple things when you shop around. For instance, you’ll want to make sure your provider gives you a toll-free 24/7 emergency contact number, should you need to make a claim or receive assistance. This will be particularly necessary if you’re going to be taking part in outdoor activities, as you will most likely be doing in some form in Aotearoa. 

Even if you purchase a ‘sports type’ travel insurance package, you’ll still need to double check you are not being left open by your provider. A lot of sports travel insurance packages still exclude some sporting activities that people will intend to take part in, in a country like New Zealand. 

All policies have the following activities are general exclusions;

Hunts, plays polo, races (except on foot), mountaineers using support ropes, paraglides, rock climbs, abseils, participates in base jumping, running with the bulls, or potholing (caving). 

We provide altitude travel insurance which has no limit on height, so if you find yourself in trouble at the top of Aoraki / Mount Cook at 3700m, never fear, you’ll still be able to be evacuated off the mountain.
