Comprehensive Travel Insurance
Comprehensive travel insurance is Fast Cover's most popular policy option, as it provides the highest level of cover for the widest range of unexpected situations.
It’s always exciting to plan out where you’re going to go, how you’re going to get there and what you’re going to do. But whether you’re touring famous landmarks and museums in Europe, going on a road trip across the USA, sampling the culinary delights of Asia, or cruising the icy waters of Alaska, finding a suitable insurance policy should also be at the top of your to-do travel list.
Everyone wants holidays to go smoothly, but who knows what emergencies may arise?
What if you slip over on the cobblestones in France and injure yourself, or a volcanic ash cloud results in your flights home from Bali being cancelled, or you have your bag snatched in Brazil?
It’s great peace of mind to know you'll have someone on your side as well as cover for those unexpected expenses in case something does go wrong.
Why should you get Comprehensive travel insurance?
Our Comprehensive policy not only offers great cover for your cancellation costs if you can’t travel due to a medical reason, but you’ll also be covered for a wide range of different situations that can happen anywhere in the world.
The Comprehensive policy includes our highest level of cover for luggage and personal belongings, travel delays and special event transport expenses, plus a high level of income protection, cover for permanent disability and accidental death.
And if you miss your connecting flight due to natural disaster and you’re stuck in transit, or the airline misplaces your luggage and you need to buy a few essential items to tie you over, our Comprehensive policy can help you out there too.

Why get Comprehensive travel insurance with Fast Cover?
We understand that buying travel insurance is not exactly the most thrilling part of planning a holiday, so we've made it as fast and simple as possible so you can get back to more exciting things like booking your tours and activities!
If you're headed off on a worldwide cruise or backpacking adventure across multiple continents, you don't need to list every single country on your itinerary.
We've simplified things by categorising all countries into several regions, so all you have to do is select the highest region that suits your trip and you'll automatically be covered for travel to every country within that region, plus the regions below it.
And, because we automatically cover a set list of 43 Pre-Existing Medical Conditions, there's no need to waste time filling out a lengthy medical history form.
We also offer a "no questions asked" money back guarantee on every Fast Cover policy. As long as your travel departure date (shown on your Certificate of Insurance) hasn't passed and you don't need to use the policy to make a claim, you can get a full refund on your premium within 14 days of the purchase date.
Compare our Comprehensive travel insurance to other similar policies and we're confident you’ll find that we provide great cover at a competitive price.
It's high-quality Comprehensive travel insurance made simple and affordable.
|Clive’s Cruise Catastrophe
89-year-old Clive was on a month-long cruise to the United States when he slipped on wet decking and broke his hip. The Fast Cover emergency assistance team arranged for him to be repatriated back to his home in Australia under medical supervision, coordinated his flights and transfers, and covered the cost of his medical treatment at over $81,000 AUD in total. As he had a Comprehensive policy in place, he was also reimbursed for the unused portion of his cruise holiday and related expenses.
|Calvin's Cancellation & Travel Documents Covered
Calvin and his daughter’s travel documents were damaged when their accommodation in Namibia flooded the day before they were due to fly out. Unable to leave the country, they were forced to cancel their scheduled flights and find additional accommodation while organising replacement documentation. Their travel insurance covered the cancellation expenses as well as the cost of obtaining emergency passports, and even arranged a new flight home at a total cost of $1,700 AUD.
This is my third policy with Fast Cover. I find them easy to apply for even though I'm 'internet phobic'. The price is great, the policy is reliable, and the service is great - even when you have to claim!

|Excellent response and outcome, will use again
After being robbed in Italy of passports, credit cards and basically everything we needed on the morning we due to fly home, we were devastated and worried what our insurance would cover. We needn't have been! We were reimbursed for almost everything including new passports, taxi fares, two days living expenses and best of all full reimbursement of our airfares home including our upgrade to business class which we bought just a few days before we were due to fly home.
