You need to let us know about any claim or incident that might result in a claim as soon as possible and within 60 days of the return date shown on your policy document.

If you make a claim after the 60-day time frame, please include a cover letter explaining why you were unable to make your claim within this period.

If you're still within the 60-day time frame and think you may exceed it, please call us on 1300 135 640.

If you're waiting on supporting documentation and believe you'll exceed the 60-day period, you can still lodge a claim in the meantime.

Yes, once you're home from your trip, you should lodge your claim within 60 days. This makes it easier to gather information we need to approve your claim.

However, our online claims centre lets you start your claim anywhere in the world at anytime, while all the details are still fresh so you don't have to wait.

You can save and return to an incomplete claim for up to 28 days.

If your luggage is delayed for more than 24 hours, we'll reimburse you up to $500 on the International Comprehensive Plan, or $100 on the International Essentials Plan. This covers essential emergency items of clothing and toiletries you purchase on your trip.

These amounts will double if you still haven't received your luggage after 72 hours.

Remember to upload all copies of your receipts when lodging your claim.

For more information, including the maximum benefit limit, please refer to the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS).

When you make a claim, we may ask you to provide documents that help us assess and settle your claim. Documents can also be used to help us identify correct replacement or reimbursement for you.

Examples of the types of documents you can provide, include:

  • Original police reports
  • Receipts
  • Valuations
  • Repair quotes
  • Medical certificates.
