Comprehensive travel insurance helps protect travellers with a broad range of benefits while they’re away from home. In comparison to a base-level, budget-friendly travel insurance plan, it often includes more benefits and higher benefit levels to help safeguard travellers from a wider range of incidents.
Beyond the usual benefits of emergency overseas medical expenses and luggage, comprehensive travel insurance plans can include coverage for travel provider insolvency, rental vehicle insurance excess, lost or stolen money, missed connections, hijacking, disability, accidental death, and much more.
We offer travellers two different plans – International Comprehensive+ and International Comprehensive – so you can choose the best comprehensive travel insurance for you and your trip abroad.
