helloworld Travel Insurance

Even the most carefully planned travel experiences can go unexpectedly wrong. Regardless of how careful you are, it is important to prepare for the unforeseen and organise travel insurance as soon as you have confirmed your holiday booking. With helloworld Travel Insurance, help and assistance are just a phone call away.

We offer two policy choices. For the budget conscious we have the Essentials policy, which has restricted benefits and lower policy limits. The Comprehensive policy is our top of the range policy with higher limits and extended benefits for peace of mind while travelling.

Both policies offer the following standard policy features:

  • Cover for medical and repatriation expenses
  • Emergency assistance provided 24 hours/7 days a week by Allianz Global Assistance and their international assistance network
  • Replacement cover for baggage items less than 2 years old
  • Dependent children under 21 years are covered at no additional charge
  • Rental vehicle excess cover
  • Some recreational sports are automatically covered including:
    • Leisure skiing and snowboarding
    • Scuba diving (with PADI or NAUI qualification)
    • Hot air ballooning
    • Parasailing and paragliding
    • Bungee jumping
    • White-water rafting in grade 4 or less rivers

Our Comprehensive policy also includes:

  • Evacuation cover for civil unrest in  the Pacific Islands
  • Terrorism cover
  • Automatic cover for some Pre-existing medical conditions

You can also ask us for the following extensions:

  • Private hospital care where reciprocal health agreements are in place  
  • Nil and high excess options
  • Increased cover for specified high value items
  • Cover for Pre-existing medical conditions

Your request will be subject to assessment, and if we agree to the extension, an additional premium may be payable.
