Am I covered if my trip is affected by a natural disaster?

Your policy provides cover towards the cost of travel arrangements if your scheduled or connecting transport is cancelled, delayed, rescheduled or diverted because of an unexpected natural disaster.


  • Cover may depend on whether the natural disaster was unforeseen when you purchased the insurance, and 
  • Whether the circumstances giving rise to any claim arose in circumstances where travel was undertaken against the advice or warning by any government or official body or where the mass media had indicated the existence or potential existence of circumstances that may affect the travel.
  • The Basics policy does not provide this cover.

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