Covid-19 cover has been added to all of our plans to provide coverage for certain unexpected and unforeseen Covid-19 related costs, such as:
- Medical Expenses, in the case of a Covid-19 diagnosis requiring treatment
- Cancellation expenses in the event travel plans have to be cancelled after contracting Covid-19
- Additional expenses as a result of having to amend travel if Covid-19 is contracted
- Denied boarding allowance for instances where Covid-19 is suspected and boarding a ship or plane is not allowed
It's important to note that we do not cover expected or anticipated Covid-19 related expenses, such as mandatory isolation upon arrival into New Zealand or Covid-19 screening for immigration purposes. There are also some other scenarios that we do not cover.
The below table outlines examples of possible scenarios where we would cover Covid-19 related-costs. Please note that individual circumstances may affect the coverage, for example if Covid-19 was a pre-existing condition at time of policy purchase.
This information is designed to provide an overview of coverage and is correct as at 13 September 2021. Please note that benefit limits, general exclusions and terms and conditions will be applicable. Please see the applicable Policy document for full terms and conditions.
