nib travel insurance – for today’s travellers.
nib understands the importance of helping people access insurance products and services suitable for every travel adventure; from planning and experiencing, to returning home safely.
You can choose the plan that you think best suits the kind of holiday you’re taking and the level of cover you need – from basic cover through to comprehensive, multi-trip, domestic and international plans.
nib can provide cover for many things that could go wrong when you travel, including:
- Having your trip or flights cancelled
- Accidental lost luggage or having it stolen
- Suffering a medical or dental emergency overseas
- Getting sick or injured overseas, even when playing amateur sports, and more
nib travel insurance also includes automatic cover for a range of existing medical conditions and the ability to apply to cover some other conditions for an additional premium (which may be significant) and increased excess.
Easy online medical screenings
If you have an existing medical condition that is not automatically covered by your plan, you may be able to apply to have it covered for an additional premium (which may be significant) and increased excess.
You’ll be asked to complete a medical screening which can be done quickly and easily online, in-store with your partner or over the phone with a member of our helpful nib customer service team.

Travel Alert/Important Information
Our policies provide cover for some coronavirus related events. Cover is not available for loss arising from: government intervention including travel bans, border closures or broadly imposed quarantine requirements; events for which the Government has issued a ‘Do Not Travel’ warning for your destination, or failure to follow advice from official bodies. See the PDS for details. Your ability to travel may be affected by travel restrictions. Check the latest government advice and our travel insurance alerts.
Coronavirus has changed travel for everyone and even though you might be ready to hit the road (or sky), when it comes to travel insurance, it’s more important than ever to know exactly what you are and aren’t covered for before you go.
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 carefully 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. There is no cover for medical, hospital or ambulance expenses in Australia.
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.
