How does travel insurance cover my holiday?

We know the most unexpected things can happen when traveling - sex accidents, malaria, chikungunya. We've even heard of coral being firmly lodged in a traveler's bum after a surfing accident. 

So we've built our policies to help cover as many of those unexpected situations as we can. All of our policies have cover for: 

  • Overseas Medical
  • Luggage/baggage cover
  • Cancellation
  • 24/7 worldwide assistance

What’s not covered on holiday travel insurance?

We've seen some pretty strange things on the road. Some of the exclusions include:

  • If you do something illegal
  • Where you've been acting like a fool
  • If you’ve had drugs or alcohol
  • Any costs associated with an STD 

This isn't a complete list of things that aren't covered. Be sure to read the policy wording before you buy so that you're aware of the terms and conditions. 

Stolen Bag.

In the city of Jaén (Peru), 2 people stole my backpack with a motorbike. The bag was at my feet as I was waiting for my girlfriend to come back from the hotel as we were looking for one place to stay (we just arrived). One guy took the bag and as I realised it I ran after him to get my bag. He jumped into a local motorbike (awaiting next to him with 3 seats behind) with my bag. I ran after him, jumped into the motorbike and began to fight ... unfortunately, he kicked me out and the 2 (the driver and the guy who took my bag) drove away with my stuff.
