GoComprehensive plan provides a comprehensive level of cover and is the most popular plan. Read the Schedule of Benefits and Travel Insurance Policy Wording to determine if the Comprehensive plan is right for you.
If you're on a budget and you only require limited travel insurance cover, the Essentials plan might meet your needs.
Medical expenses overseas can be very expensive. The Essentials plan includes up to $250,000 in cover for overseas medical expenses as well as limited cover for a selection of other benefits.
Read the Schedule of Benefits and Travel Insurance Policy Wording to determine if Essentials plan is right for you. Cover will apply when you leave New Zealand until the expiry date shown on your certificate of insurance, or until you return to your normal place of residence, whichever is the earlier date.
Frequent Traveller plan provides cover for many journeys throughout a policy year. This may make the plan well suited to frequent travellers such as those that own a holiday home in Australia or the Pacific Islands or those that are fortunate enough to plan more than one holiday throughout the year. Cover starts each time you leave your home in New Zealand and ends when you return home. The maximum period for any one journey is 60 days.
As soon as you purchase your policy, the cancellation and loss of deposit benefits kick in, ensuring that even if you are not travelling just yet you have some cover.

Important claims information
We will pay all claims in New Zealand dollars. We will pay you unless you tell us to pay someone else. The rate of currency exchange that will apply is the rate at the time you incurred the expense.
Depreciation will be applied to claims for Luggage and Personal Effects at such rates as reasonably determined by Allianz Partners. If you can make a claim against someone in relation to a
loss or expense covered under this policy and you do not get paid the full amount of your claim, we will make up the difference. You must claim from them first.
