Travelling away from home is generally an enjoyable experience, but sometimes things don’t go precisely to plan.

Protecting your trip with travel insurance that includes cover for loss of income could provide much needed support when you need it most.

What is a Loss of Income Travel Insurance Benefit?

A loss of income travel insurance benefit could help provide financial support if you’re unable to work because of an injury (caused solely and directly by violent, accidental, visible, and external means) or a disabling sickness that occurred while you were travelling.

This benefit is included on many travel insurance plans, so it’s important to consider your needs when selecting the right travel insurance policy for you.

Why Should I Protect My Trip with a Loss of Income Travel Insurance Benefit?

If you’re unable to return to work in Australia because you suffered a sickness or an injury caused by an accident while you were travelling and your income is negatively affected, the loss of income travel insurance benefit could help provide financial support and peace of mind.

At Cover-More, we know the unexpected can happen when you least expect it, and we’re here to help if it does.
