What you'll need

Have this info handy

  • Your Certificate of Insurance - it has your policy number at the top and confirms your excess
  • If you activate insurance included with your eligible ComBank credit card after you have left Australia, there’ll be a three day no cover period before you can receive any benefits
  • Documents like a police report or medical notes relating the event you’re claiming for
  • A phone number Cover-More can call you back on

What to consider before you make a claim

  • Make sure you’re familiar with the excess applicable to your claim - your excess limit is shown on your Certificate of Insurance
  • Check that your insurance includes cancellation cover before you make a cancellation-related claim
  • Claims resulting from, or made worse by, an existing medical condition that you haven’t declared are unlikely to be covered

Where used, the term “unlimited” only means there is no capped dollar sum insured. All costs and expenses claimed must be reasonable. You are only covered for treatment received and/or hospital accommodation during the 12 month period after the sickness first showed itself or the injury happened.

You need to activate your international travel insurance available with eligible credit cards before each trip in order to have comprehensive level of cover. If you don’t activate, you’ll receive personal liability cover and overseas emergency medical assistance and overseas emergency medical and hospital expenses cover only.

Terms, conditions, restrictions, exclusions (including for pre-existing medical conditions and persons aged 74 years or over), limits and excesses may apply to all insurances.
