Frequently Asked Questions
What Does Travel Insurance Cover?
Many travelers turn to trip insurance to protect themselves from a variety of events that may cause a financial loss before or during their trip. Policies are built specifically with travelers’ main concerns in mind, including coverage for trip cancellations, medical emergencies, flight delays and lost luggage. If you would like to have coverage for your next trip, understanding what travel insurance covers can help you select the best policy.
How Does Travel Insurance Work?
Trip insurance works as a method of reimbursement if something goes wrong before or during your trip. You can enter your trip details into Squaremouth’s search form to generate a list of travel insurance quotes for your trip. After you buy a policy, your coverage will become effective at midnight the next day. If an unexpected event impacts your trip, you may file a claim as soon as possible, or when you return home, to be refunded by your provider. If you have questions during your trip, contact your provider’s 24-hour Emergency Assistance department for information about how your policy’s coverage works.
How Much Does Travel Insurance Cost?
The cost of a policy depends on four primary factors: your trip cost, your age, the length of your trip, and the amount of coverage. A typical policy with Trip Cancellation coverage will cost between 5% and 10% of your total trip cost. However, a policy without an insured trip cost will likely be significantly less expensive. Because the cost varies by policy, we recommend the least expensive policy with the coverage you need.

WHY Buy Travel Insurance?
We’re not silly, we know that plenty of Aussies go on holiday and have an amazing time exploring new and exciting places without buying travel insurance. But taking a gamble on your much needed break can be risky. Here’s why!
Exxy Medical Costs
If you buy a policy for just one reason this is it! Falling ill or being injured while travelling overseas can be extremely costly. Hospital costs in the USA can reach up to $10,000 per day, while emergency transport home for treatment can easily exceed $100,000! Ouch!
Disasters Can Strike
The excitement of getting on that plane has you knotted up like a pretzel. Picture your dismay if you had to cancel last minute. Worse still, imagine you’re mid-martini when bad news breaks. Should you need to return home, you’ll be covered for unforeseen events like injury or illness of a close relative.
Your Stuff Is Important
Loss, theft or damage to your prized possessions can be a common, yet gut-wrenching experience. If your personal belongings go AWOL while you’re away the right policy will pay to replace or repair them. Win!
For Your Peace Of Mind
Travel insurance will take a load off so you can get some R&R. A comprehensive policy will cover you for an array of sticky situations while you’re travelling within Australia, or overseas.
Because You Have To
Still not convinced? We hate to be the fun police, but some countries simply won’t let you in without cover! For example, it is mandatory to take out travel insurance when travelling to Thailand or Cuba.
