Holiday Insurance

Everyone needs a holiday once in a while. Whether you take a long weekend in another city or go on a longer trip overseas, a holiday offers an opportunity to break your routine for something more relaxing, exciting or both. Any holiday, of any length, to any destination includes some preparation.

Though travel insurance isn’t compulsory, it should be part of your holiday preparation and can prove extremely valuable if something goes wrong on your holiday. Overseas medical treatment and emergency evacuation costs can be significantly higher than in Australia. We’re talking over $300,000 in some cases. Without insurance it would also be up to you to cover the costs of your lost or stolen belongings, alternative accommodation or transport if your flights are cancelled.

A stolen bag, a tummy bug or a cancelled flight can spoil a holiday but with holiday insurance, you can have peace of mind that these problems won’t turn your holiday into a crisis.*

 

Who should get holiday insurance?

Holiday insurance is for anyone planning a trip away from their home. Whether you’re travelling for a day, a month or a whole year, going on a holiday comes with a level of risk. Our holiday insurance plans can cover you whether your plans involve:

  • Spending a week or two relaxing on the beach.
  • Chilling by the pool, sipping cocktails and indulging in the occasional massage or beauty treatment.
  • Blasting down the slopes on your skis or snowboard.
  • Travelling on a budget to see some of the world’s sights and experiencing their cultures.
  • Packing in as much adventure as possible, from bungee jumping to mountain biking.
  • Cruising the high seas.

Whatever your plans, Fast Cover can provide cover for you, your belongings and the people you travel with. Simply contact us for a quote and discover how simple getting holiday insurance can be.

What are the benefits for this cover? 

Wherever you go on holiday, it’s important to bear in mind that you can’t control everything that happens. Having holiday insurance in place means cover is provided if something does go wrong while you’re away. 

Our policies are built around the things that matter most to you including your health, your belongings and the money you’ve spent on your holiday. If you need to go to hospital, break a bone whilst skiing, your bag is stolen or your flight is cancelled, you’ll have cover that can support you and help with the costs.*

If your luggage is lost by your airline, your insurance can cover the cost of replacing your belongings and an allowance for essential items while you wait to have them returned.*

And to make things even simpler for you, we don’t require you to fill out a medical assessment, so you can get back to your packing faster.

    However, you CANNOT shorten the duration of your policy. If you have to shorten your trip and return home on medical advice and do not already have a return ticket, the amount of the claim will be reduced by the price of the fare to Australia from the place you planned to return to Australia from.
