Ski Travel Insurance
If you're going overseas, the Australian government considers travel insurance to be a necessity to cover unexpected events such as illnesses and accidents.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to impact many travellers around the world. Before you buy, read the travel advice and check for restrictions at your destination(s) as these may impact cover, or your ability to travel. See nib's travel insurance alerts for more information.
Is any coronavirus cover available on 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.
As much as we'd love to cover every coronavirus-related scenario that a traveller can think of, that's 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 isn't, 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 we decide it's 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.
