|Pete’s Pickpocketed Phone
35-year-old Pete was out at dinner with friends in Hong Kong when he noticed that his phone was missing from his pocket. He immediately reported the theft to the local police and obtained a written report to submit with his claim, and was reimbursed $730 AUD under the luggage and personal effects benefit of his Fast Cover travel insurance policy.
The insurance was easy to purchase online while easily able to compare different policies which were also reasonably priced. In addition, there were options of the excess you wish to pay should you need to make a claim. I was pleasantly surprised and impressed. I will purchase with them again for sure.

Simple To Get And Easy To Claim
I found it very easy to set up my travel insurance policy. I did have to make a claim for a doctor's consultation while travelling and for medication. I paid out of pocket and made my claim when I got home. I found the claims process easy enough to follow and my claim was processed in about four days.
