Sinead provided excellent assistance in arranging my insurance cover for my travel next year. She had good product knowledge, very good interpersonal skills and always delivered what she promised within agreed timeframes. From a customer's perspective, personnel such as Sinead are great to deal with and should be valued and retained.

What a pleasure it has been to enquire about travel insurance with Sinead. She was so professional and helpful at all times. She was a pleasure to talk with and answered every question I had regarding travel insurance and above all returned my phone calls quickly with any questions she wasn't sure of. National Seniors Insurance are blessed to have such a delightful, helpful person working for them and I would recommend Sinead to any of my friends for travel insurance.

I would like to say that Sinead was extremely helpful and knowledgeable in quoting for insurance for a couple of policies we were getting for comparison for. She is very friendly, easy to talk to and makes you feel like a friend rather than just another customer, which I like. I would recommend anyone to contact her for their insurance quotes.

COVID-19 FAQs


Travel Alert

Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to impact many travellers around the world. Before you buy, read the travel advice and check for restrictions at your destination(s) as these may impact cover, or your ability to travel. See our travel insurance alerts for more information.

Is any coronavirus cover available on travel insurance plans and what are the benefits?

Cover for some coronavirus related events is available on all nib’s travel insurance plans (excl. Cancellation and Additional Expenses Plan), but the types of benefits and benefit limits vary.

As much as we’d love to cover every coronavirus-related scenario that a traveller can think of, that’s not what travel insurance is designed to do, so read the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) for Australian residents for the full terms, conditions, limits and exclusions so that you know what is, and isn’t, covered.

Overseas Medical Benefit: If you contract coronavirus while on your trip, all of nib’s International travel insurance plans can offer cover for overseas medical expenses.

Medical evacuation and repatriation: All nib travel insurance plans include cover for medical evacuation and repatriation if we decide it’s medically necessary, up to the relevant benefit limit.³

Coronavirus Travel Costs: nib’s Coronavirus Travel Costs benefit is available on the Comprehensive Travel Plan, Australian Travel plan and Annual Multi Trip Plan and can provide cover for several coronavirus related events. It includes cover for quarantine expenses and trip cancellation if you are diagnosed with coronavirus.

What do I do if I get Coronavirus (COVID-19) before my trip?

Isolate! And seek appropriate medical attention.

Don’t delay the cancellation of your plans. If you know you need to cancel, contact your providers as soon as possible to maximise the opportunity of refunds from your providers.

Depending on the plan you have chosen, you may be able to make a claim for non-refundable travel costs under the Coronavirus Travel Costs section of the plan up to the benefit limit.

What do I do if I get Coronavirus (COVID-19) on my trip?

Contact nib Emergency Assistance. Utilising a global network of medical providers, the team will connect you with local medical facilities. They can also assist by getting in contact with friends and family where needed.

Always keep receipts for any payments you make and wherever possible, request written reports from providers or local authorities.

Follow travel and health advice – different countries have different rules. What’s ok in Australia may not be ok in the countries you visit.

Our International plans include emergency overseas medical cover if you contract coronavirus while travelling.³

If I need medical treatment overseas, will you only pay up to the Coronavirus Travel benefit limit?

Rest assured that if you incur medical expenses overseas for an event covered under the policy, including if you contract Coronavirus (COVID-19) and it’s not related to an ‘existing medical condition’ (as defined in the PDS), then coverage is offered up to the Medical benefit limit.³ Just make sure you contact nib Emergency Assistance so they can help.

The Coronavirus Travel Costs benefit (for other non-medical coronavirus related events, where included on the plan you have selected) is separate to the benefit limit available for medical expenses Incurred Overseas.

Need to make a claim?

Sorry to hear your trip didn’t go as planned. At least making a claim is a simple process.
