What is Annual Multi-Trip (AMT) travel insurance?

An Annual Multi-Trip policy provides you with multi-trip travel insurance over a 12-month period. If you are a frequent traveller who takes multiple trips a year, then you may find an AMT plan is an affordable solution for protecting your travels.

Under this type of policy, cover is provided for an unlimited number of trips throughout the year every time you travel further than 250 kilometres from your home, up to the individual maximum trip duration noted on your Certificate of Insurance. 

An AMT plan is not 12 months of cover for 365 days of continuous travel - each trip covered by the policy cannot extend beyond the maximum number of days you’ve selected on your policy. On our International plan, you can choose a maximum duration of either 30, 45, or 60 days. On our Domestic (only) plan, your trips can be a maximum of either 15 or 30 days.

Our AMT policy is currently available to travellers up to 74 years of age.

Why should I buy an AMT policy?

An Annual Multi-Trip policy is convenient and provides cost-effective travel insurance. So, if you’re travelling multiple times a year and you don’t want the added stress of having to take out a different travel insurance policy each time you head off on a holiday, AMT could be a great option for you. 

As a Cover-More AMT customer, you can take as many trips as you want throughout the year up to the trip duration you choose when purchasing the policy. Better yet, there’s no need to tell us about every trip you plan on taking – just set off and have fun! Do make sure your policy covers the countries you’re visiting and the activities you’re participating in, though.

What benefits do I receive with an AMT policy?

When you buy a Cover-More Annual Multi-Trip policy, you can travel with peace of mind all year ‘round. Yes, an AMT policy can provide cover for an unlimited number of trips in a 12-month period up to the trip duration selected. 

With an AMT policy, you can enjoy the following benefits, which are popular among frequent travellers:

  • overseas medical and dental cover~
  • protection for lost or delayed luggage
  • rental car insurance excess cover
  • travel delay cover
  • a level of cancellation cover you choose*, and
  • more.

    What do I need to know prior to purchasing an AMT policy?

    There are a few things you need to know about your annual policy prior to purchase.

    Maximum trip duration

    Your AMT policy only covers you up to the maximum trip duration you select at the time of purchase. This maximum applies to each separate trip. 

    For overseas trips on our International AMT plan, you can choose between 30, 45 or 60 days for each individual trip length. For trips within Australia only, on our Domestic AMT plan, you can select a maximum trip duration of either 15 or 30 days. The trip length option you choose will also affect the premium you have to pay.

    For example, if you choose a maximum trip duration of 60 days on your International Annual Multi-Trip policy, then each individual international trip you take throughout the year (and you can take as many as you want) cannot be longer than 60 days. 

    Keep in mind you are still protected for an unlimited number of trips during the annual period, but you must return home after each one. An International AMT plan also includes cover for trips within Australia if you travel more than 250 kilometres from your home. In this case, your trip can be up to the maximum duration shown on your Certificate of Insurance.

    Choose your level of cover

    Cover-More understands that each traveller is different, which is why you’re able to choose the travel insurance plan and add-ons that best fit your travel style and budget needs. 

    Our range of popular add-ons includes cover for cruises^, winter sports, and riding a motorcycle or moped. You can also increase your rental car insurance excess cover if you’re hiring a car on your trip. Remember an additional premium will apply if you upgrade your cover with add-ons relevant to your travel.
             
    The additional options don’t stop there, though. If you’re travelling with a valuable item, you can increase your luggage cover limit up to $4,500. For multiple items, the overall increase in limits cannot exceed $7,000. 

    You’ll also need to select a cancellation cover amount to protect each of your holidays. This amount is based on the total cost of each trip, so it’s best to put in the amount that’ll most likely cover your most expensive trip during the year. This will help ensure you’re protected if you need to cancel a trip and the cancellation reason falls within the terms of our PDS.

                             

    Add your excess

    When you buy a Cover-More Annual Multi-Trip policy on an International plan we give you the option to choose the amount of your excess. The excess applies if you have a claim and is the first amount of a claim that we don’t pay. You can select an excess amount of either $0, $100 or $250. For a Domestic plan, a set excess of $50 applies.

    Don’t forget the excess amount is applied to each claimable event. For more details on what this means and the benefits that an excess applies to, read our PDS.

     
     

    Existing Medical Conditions

    Cover-More automatically includes cover for many common existing medical conditions (EMCs) including asthma, acne, high cholesterol, gout, glaucoma, and epilepsy.

    To find out if your existing condition is automatically included, read the PDS. If any or all of your EMCs are not listed in our PDS or they do not meet the criteria for those automatically included, please complete a medical assessment online during the quote process or over the phone by calling us on 1300 72 88 22.

    If you develop a new medical condition during the 12-month period of your Annual Multi-Trip cover, it’s important to let us know by speaking to our team at 1300 72 88 22. Each time you book and pay for a trip (what we call the “relevant time”), you need to reconsider your medical conditions. By disclosing your condition you’re helping our team determine if the condition is considered an EMC or a new condition on any planned or future trips. Please read the PDS for more information.
