If for some reason you change your mind about your insurance purchase, Cover-More policies give you peace of mind by offering a 'cooling off period' of 15 business days. During this time, you can obtain a full refund (if you haven't made a claim and your departure date has not passed). If you need to cancel your policy, please phone Flight Centre on 133 133.
A policy can be purchased anytime leading up to your departure date, but it’s a good idea to purchase your policy as soon as you’ve booked your trip. Because Cover-More policies include cover for cancellation costs on most of their plans and cover starts from the time the policy is purchased, doing so means you can make full use of this benefit if you become ill and unfit to travel before you go away. This means you’ll be able to claim for money you may otherwise not have be refunded. Also, check out Cover-More’s Cancel For Any Reason cover option, which is available for an extra premium.
When buying any insurance policy, you should always carefully consider the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) to see if the cover is right for you. The PDS gives you a full rundown on what you're covered for and – more importantly – what you're not covered for. Some things to look out for in the PDS include:
With the level and type of cover varying between policies, it’s important to understand every level of travel insurance cover is different. You should carefully consider the Product Disclosure Statement before deciding if the policy provides the coverage you need.
Overseas medical and dental expenses
If you get sick or injured overseas, Cover-More includes unlimited~ cover for your overseas treatment costs, including those incurred by overseas doctors, hospitals, ambulances and medications. Many policies have a sub-limit for dental coverage that is far less than what the table of benefits indicates, so make sure your travel insurance policy offers an adequate level of dental cover.
Cover for unexpected travel costs if:
Amendment or cancellation costs
Cover for trip amendments or cancellation if an unexpected event occurs, such as:
Luggage and travel documents

This is available on International Plus and Inbound plans as standard, and can be purchased as add-ons with the International Essentials plans. (Sub-limits apply.)
Rental car insurance excess
If your rental car is stolen or damaged, cover is provided for the insurance excess you’re required to pay.
This is included on International Plus, Inbound, and Domestic plans. It can be purchased on the International Essentials plan as an add-on.
It’s important to know that some medical conditions are classified as existing medical conditions and may not be covered by our base policy, even if they occurred years ago or you feel in good health now.
