Frequently Asked Questions

How soon before my trip should I buy travel insurance?

Travel insurance must be obtained before you embark on your journey. You can purchase travel insurance up to 12 months before you travel, however the journey cancellation benefit is only effective six months prior to your departure.

Does travel insurance cover lost items?

Yes, your travel insurance may cover certain misplaced items, depending on your type of cover. Insurers may not compensate lost belongings if you are negligent (i.e. you left your belongings unattended), you don’t report the theft to the authorities, or if certain valuables – like your computer or jewellery – are placed in your check-in luggage. In order to claim, you must be able to prove the value and your ownership of the items. You’ll also be restricted to only claiming up to your policy’s benefit limit
