Example Incidents~

Annette's Accident

Annette, a 32-year-old traveller from South Australia, broke two bones in her leg and dislocated her ankle slipping on the hotel bathroom floor. She was rushed to hospital in an ambulance for surgery and spent eight days recovering in hospital. Her Standard policy covered the cost of her medical transport, hospital and medical expenses as well as the flight back to Australia in Business Class.


Sandra's Sickness at Sea

70-year-old Sandra from Canberra could have been left with medical bills totalling more than $29,000 AUD if she hadn’t purchased travel insurance. Sandra was on a 60 day cruise in Asia with her husband Jacob when she picked up a severe respiratory infection and needed to be evacuated from the ship. Fast Cover's Emergency Assistance team helped coordinate her medical transport and treatment as well as organising accommodation for Jacob to stay nearby while she recovered in hospital. They also arranged alternative flights home under medical supervision with oxygen once Sandra was declared fit to fly.

Traveller Testimonials

Such a good insurance company

After having insured with Fast Cover many times I find the policy is of excellent value, and so easy to set up online. I have recommended this company to many of my friends as I am extremely satisfied with how friendly and helpful they are.

Helpful service

The policy was very well priced and options were available so I could tailor what I purchased to my needs. I set it up online, paid and had confirmation and printable paperwork in less than 15 minutes. On the occasion I needed to make a claim, this was dealt with quickly and satisfactorily by helpful telephone assistants. I continue to buy my travel insurance from Fast Cover.

Sandy –


Great cover

We had fast Cover insurance for our recent trip to the USA and Canada. Our luggage did not fare well with US security. The Fast Cover claim was easy to complete and submit. The claim was dealt with promptly and efficiently with no fuss which was great after the damage done. We would use this company again.
