Does travel insurance cover cancellation due to pregnancy?

Yes, you are covered for cancellation due to an unexpected and unforeseen complication during your pregnancy up to the end of the 23rd week for a single pregnancy OR up to the end of the 19th week for twins or multiple children.

You must contact your medical practitioner and get written confirmation that you are fit to travel. If you don’t get written confirmation from your medical practitioner that you are fit to travel, or the medical practitioner declares you unfit to travel, you will not be covered for any claim that arises from that condition on your trip if you choose to travel. 

If your medical practitioner declares you unfit to travel, then you are covered under the terms of your existing policy to cancel your trip and make a claim under the Trip Cancellation Expenses benefit.

Cover is subject to the policy terms, conditions, limits and exclusions in the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS).
