What is Trip Resumption Expenses?

Trip resumption expenses are the costs that you incur to return to your trip because it was interrupted due to circumstances out of your control.

These circumstances include (but is not limited to): you being seriously injured while on your trip and the Emergency Assistance team repatriate you back to Australia for treatment, or your close relative in Australia who is under the age of 85 unexpectedly passes away.

For example: You are half-way through your trip and a family member is unexpectedly admitted to hospital due to a serious injury. If you return home to be with them and they then recover, you could claim for the cost for you to return to continue your trip.


  • You can only resume your trip if you have at least 14 days left on your policy 
  • You can only claim this benefit, if the reason for your return home is for something that you could claim for under "Trip Disruption Expenses".

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