Travel Insurance Benefit for Accidental Death


Protect your family from unnecessary financial burden

Unfortunately, accidents do sometimes occur, and if the worst scenario occurs while you’re travelling, our policy can protect you.

Cover-More’s accidental death benefit is included in our travel insurance to help offset the financial burden your family may face should you suffer from an injury overseas resulting in your death. We recommend you read our full PDS to find out exactly what’s covered – because unfortunately we’re unable to cover absolutely everything.

Understanding our accidental death benefit

Travelling is generally a pleasurable experience, but occasionally the unthinkable can happen. Should you suffer an injury during the period of your travel insurance policy that’s caused solely and directly by violent, accidental, visible and external means – but not caused by a sickness or disease - that results in your death, Cover-More travel insurance includes an Accidental Death benefit (payable to your estate if your claim is approved) for the amount shown in your travel insurance policy, provided your death occurs within one year of the accident.

Please note the maximum accidental death limit for any accompanying children is $1,000 for each child, while the maximum benefit limit Cover-More’s accidental death cover is:

Premium Plan $25,000*
Medical Only Plan No cover
Domestic Plan $10,000*
Domestic Cancellation Plan No cover
Inbound Plan $10,000

*A maximum liability collectively applies for the Loss of Income; Disability; and Accidental Death benefits of $25,000 for the Premium Plan, and $10,000 for the Domestic Plan.

Please also refer to our General Exclusions and Policy Conditions.
