Group Travel Insurance
Fast Cover provides affordable group travel insurance options to make sure you and your friends have the same great level of cover for your trip!
Whether it’s a school camp or excursion, a destination wedding, or just a trip away with a bunch of your best buds, travelling in a group can make exploring new places even more exciting!
If you've booked as a group to travel, it makes sense for your group to buy travel insurance from one company rather than arranging it individually. That way there's only one company to contact if something unexpected happens while you travel.
We can arrange a travel insurance quote for your group of friends of any size so you can all enjoy your holiday together with no worries!
Our Duo travel insurance option provides cover for any two adults travelling together and covers unexpected expenses you might incur such as if you become sick or injured, your belongings are lost or stolen, your flights are delayed, or if one of you gets unexpectedly sick or injured before you even leave home!
Who should get group travel insurance?
Although the saying goes that there's safety in numbers, getting good insurance before you travel is still crucial in case something goes wrong or you experience an emergency overseas.
Our travel insurance can provide cover for your group’s health, luggage and belongings, and booking fees while you're travelling.
Your group could be:
- A group of friends going overseas for a holiday, bucks or hens party.
- A family travelling for a birthday, anniversary or family reunion.
- A beautiful destination wedding overseas.
- A team or sporting group attending a tournament in another state or country.
- A school group planning an exchange or trip for one night or more.
- A group of employees attending a corporate event or conference overseas.
Booking travel insurance for your group through Fast Cover means you’re covered by a travel insurance specialist and you can save some money for your trip!
If you purchase policies for two or more adults, we'll provide you with a 5% discount when compared to purchasing insurance individually for the same level of cover.
Just provide a few details about your trip and the travellers and we’ll give you a competitive quote for your group travel insurance.
What information do I need to provide for a group travel insurance quote?
Getting travel insurance for your group is simple. To get a quote, all you’ll need to know is:
- Where you’re travelling
- The dates your group is travelling (when you leave your home and when you return home)
- The current ages of all travellers in your group
To purchase your policy, the extra information you’ll need is:

- The date of birth of everyone travelling in your group
- Contact details, ie Email and Phone number, of everyone in your group
To save you time, we can use the contact details of one traveller (usually the organiser) and send you everyone's certificates, or we can put in the individual contact details of all travellers and distribute the insurance certificates individually.

The benefits of taking out group travel insurance
Taking out travel insurance for your group comes with a wide range of added benefits, such as:
Better value for money:
You will receive a discount when you buy travel insurance as a group compared to buying travel insurance individually. Fast Cover offers a 5% discount off standard premium rates for each traveller and 50% off excess reduction whenever you book insurance for two or more adult travellers on one policy.
Friends travel insurance can also be more convenient. If you’re travelling as a group, you’ll have fewer policy numbers to remember and only one set of contact details to take with you, rather than carrying around a stack of paperwork.
Most importantly, travel insurance for your group comes with all the features and benefits of an individual insurance policy, but because you’ve bought travel insurance for a group, you know that everyone in the group has the same high level of cover. In the event that something does happen whilst you’re away, your friends will be the ones best placed to help you. If you’re all insured by the same insurance company, you’ll have the contact details at hand for emergency assistance immediately. This can avoid the added stress of trying to work out who's insured with who and find someone’s travel insurance details in a critical situation.
Fast and simple:
We make buying travel insurance fast and simple by automatically covering 43 Pre-Existing Medical Conditions with our Friends travel insurance so you don’t have to fill a bunch of individual medical forms!

|Robbery in Rome
Ross was enjoying the last few days of a group tour in Italy with his wife when they were robbed of their passports, credit cards and cash. They reported the theft immediately at the local police station, obtained a written report and called the Fast Cover 24 hour Emergency Assistance team. Their Comprehensive policy covered the cost of replacement passports, taxi fares, two days living expenses and full reimbursement of their return airfares including the upgrade to business class which they had bought just a few days earlier.
|Allen's Andes Anguish
57-year-old Allen from Melbourne was over halfway through his bucket list hike with a group in South America when he began experiencing high-altitude sickness. The Fast Cover emergency assistance team arranged Allen's medical evacuation to hospital for treatment as well as transport back to Australia when he had recovered enough to travel home. Allen's hiking tour may have been cut short, but his travel insurance policy covered his medical and hospital expenses which totalled over $23,000 AUD.
This is the company that I use all the time now. Great coverage at a reasonable price. Easy online setup and never any hassle. Highly recommend them to anybody needing travel insurance.

|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.
