Business Travel Insurance
If you're one of nearly three million Australians who travel for work each year, a business travel insurance policy should be at the top of your to-do list.
Your employer may be paying for your accommodation and transport, but chances are it's up to you to make sure you're covered in case you become ill, your flights are delayed or your belongings get damaged, stolen or lost.
Whether you're travelling interstate for meetings, flying overseas for an important conference, or jetting off on a working holiday, make sure you tick business travel insurance off your task list.
Who should get business travel insurance?
While travelling for business can involve fantastic accommodation and the best seats on the flight, things can also go wrong.
Accidents can happen anywhere and at any time. Laptops can be broken or stolen, luggage can be misplaced and flights can be cancelled.
However, travel insurance can help make sure these nuisances don’t escalate into a full-blown, expensive crisis.
Get your travel insurance quote today if you are:
- Planning a visit to a conference or expo in another town, state or country
- Meeting corporate clients away from home
- Visiting another business or worksite
- Planning to work for your company in another country for up to 24 months
If you're lucky enough to squeeze in some playtime around your work schedule, we’ll cover you for that too!
If you travel overseas regularly for work or in combination with personal trips, a Frequent Traveller Saver policy may be the most cost-effective travel insurance option for you.
This multi-trip policy allows you to take an unlimited number of trips overseas within a 12 month period, and there's the option of adding on cover for your spouse, partner, and dependant children or grandchildren so they can accompany you on one or multiple trips.
Why should you get business travel insurance?
Fast Cover's business travel insurance has been designed to cover you for what matters most whilst you’re working away from home.

There's also no need to list every single country you're intending to travel to. Simply select the region you need and you're automatically covered for all the countries included in that region, as well as the regions below it.
For example, if you're travelling to Asia, you're automatically covered for travel within the Pacific, New Zealand and Domestic regions as well.
With extensive specialist experience in the travel insurance industry, we can help you build a policy that provides cover for the things that are most important to you, wherever you are travelling next for business.
|Dave’s Damaged Device
After travelling from the United Kingdom to Germany for business, Dave was dismayed to find his laptop computer had been damaged during the flight. Even though he had taken reasonable steps to safeguard the laptop by stowing it in the overhead luggage compartment in a protective case, the screen was badly cracked. After returning home, he submitted an online claim with photos and supporting documentation from the airline and was compensated $775 AUD by his Fast Cover travel insurance policy.
|Marge’s Medical Expenses
Marge visited a doctor in Dubai after her flight, suffering from pain and swelling in her thighs. She was sent for an ultrasound which revealed a superficial blood clot in her upper leg. As it was not related to a pre-existing condition, her Fast Cover policy covered the $1,300 AUD medical bill.
Made a claim which was received in less than two weeks. Would recommend to anyone and will use again when able to travel. Customer service was excellent.
