What We Cover - Activities

Activities

Motorcycles & Mopeds

Need cover for riding a motorcycle, moped or scooter? Add the Motorcycle Pack to your policy.

For motorcycles, you’ll need a current Australian motorcycle licence, but there’s no limit on the engine size. If you’re riding mopeds and scooters, provided the engine capacity is 50cc or under, a current Australian drivers licence will be fine.

Whatever you’re riding, you also still need to adhere to the licensing requirements for the country you're travelling in.

Cruising the Oceans

It’s one of our most popular holiday options, but can also be one of our most expensive if you get sick or injured. Whether you’re just cruising our local waters or checking out the polar bears in Alaska, if you have a cruise policy and have a life threatening emergency, we’ll help you get back to shore ASAP.
