Claims in relation to COVID-19

No, the Policy does not provide any cover for COVID-19, and We will not (under any sections) pay for claims of any kind directly arising from or, relating to the Coronavirus Disease 19 (COVID-19) (or any mutation or variation thereof) and/or its outbreak.

No, your policy will not provide any cover for any costs you may incur if you are required to stay overseas due to a COVID-19 related border closure.

Yes, you will be covered for claims not related to COVID-19 subject to all policy terms, conditions and exclusions.  

If my flight was cancelled by an airline operator due to a border closure enforced by an Australian state government in relation to COVID-19, will I be covered?

No, this policy will not cover any government-enforced border closures due to COVID-19.

I booked a trip in 2019 before the COVID-19 pandemic for a trip to an overseas location in 2021, I wish to cancel this trip due to the COVID-19 situation overseas and quarantine requirement by Australia government. Will I be covered if my travel agent does not refund my booking?

In the event you have a disruption to your Trip causing a Cancellation, Curtailment or Trip Change that is necessary, unavoidable and unforeseen, We will pay up to the maximum relevant cover section limit inclusive of sub-limits as shown in the Schedule of Benefits in the new terms and conditions. 

In relation to travel outside of Australia, We consider COVID-19 to be a “foreseen circumstance” for policies issued and/or travel arrangements made under an existing policy that are paid for where travelling to the following areas and after the following dates:

5:00 pm (AEDT) on 22 January 2020 for Hubei province, China;

9:00 am (AEDT) on 02 February 2020 for mainland China; and

4:00 pm (AEDT) on 02 March 2020 for all other destinations outside Australia.

Therefore, if the insurance cover is activated after the above dates, COVID-19 is considered a “foreseen circumstance” and as such claims for trip cancellation or disruption are unlikely to be covered by the policy.
