Travel Insurance for couples
Couples travel insurance is a must for any lovebirds travelling overseas, whether you're surprising your partner with a romantic rendezvous to Paris, relaxing on the beaches of Hawaii, backpacking in Europe, or enjoying your honeymoon on a luxury Caribbean cruise!
Immersing yourself in new and different cultural experiences with your significant other can be life-changing, and creates beautiful (and sometimes hilarious!) memories for years to come.
However, things don't always turn out as perfectly as your favourite romantic comedy flick! If your plans take a turn for the worst, it's always nice to know that you're covered for these unexpected events.
A travel insurance policy provides cover in case of unexpected events, like missing your connecting flight because of bad weather, or if one of you falls ill and needs to go to hospital.
You're also covered if that sparkly new engagement ring goes missing, or your camera with all the couple selfies you took in Rome gets misplaced.
The best part about our Couples travel insurance is that you get a 5% discount when you purchase your policies together!
Who can buy Couples Travel Insurance?

|Warren's Watery Woes
Warren and his wife Laurel from Wollongong were on a Pacific Island cruise celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary when Warren slipped on the wet decking and injured his hip. Fortunately, they had taken out a Fast Cover travel insurance policy at the same time as booking their flights and accommodation. The travel insurance policy cost less than $280 and provided cover for almost $24,000 AUD worth of medical treatment and their return home under medical supervision.
|Cathy's Cruise Calamity
Cathy and her husband took a Sea Princess cruise around Asia and were enjoying the great entertainment and delicious food onboard when disaster struck. Three families were put off the ship but the damage was already done. A nasty virus spread through the passengers, forcing many to visit the expensive on-board doctor. Cathy was charged almost $300 AUD for an appointment but fortunately she had purchased a travel insurance policy and was able to claim for reimbursement when they got home.
|A friend in need is a friend indeed
The policy was of good value, especially when one unexpectedly becomes ill. Easy to set up, just answer questions. Computer system, easy to follow. The customer support was excellent. My queries were efficiently handled and with courtesy.

We had to cancel our trip to Europe for health reasons and Fast Cover refunded almost all of our outlay. Great relief and will always use them in future. Good value.
Noel – Productreview.com.au
This was the second world trip where we have used Fast Cover. On the first trip getting the policy on line was painless and its price competitive. That trip all went without a hitch. This year we again did a world trip, and again had no problems buying our policy online. However we had a problem in Europe where I broke my leg and so incurred medical expenses both on the cruise ship and onshore for second opinions. We were forced to cancel some of our stay and came home about three weeks early. Our claim was handled very efficiently and the medical expenses paid without delay. The claims department was great. We will definitely use Fast Cover again.
