Policy Extensions

  1. What happens to my policy if my return home is delayed?

    You may extend your cover free of charge if you find that your return to Australia has been delayed because of one or more of the following:

    • a bus line, airline, shipping line or rail authority you are travelling on, or that has accepted your fare or luggage and personal effects, Is delayed; or
    • the delay is due to a reason for which you can claim under your policy (subject to our written approval).

    If the delay is for any other reason, we must receive your request to extend cover at least 7 days before your original policy expires if you send your request by post. All other requests to extend cover must be received prior to your original policy expiry date. Cover will be extended subject to our written approval, and your payment of the additional premium.

    Where we have agreed to extend cover, we will issue you with a new Certificate of Insurance. The period of cover on your new Certificate cannot exceed 12 months.
