TRAVEL INSURANCE FAQs

Want to know more about TINZ's travel cover? We've got you covered. Check out our complete travel insurance FAQs or contact us today.

  • Q. When should I buy travel insurance?
  • The best time to buy travel insurance depends entirely on you and your circumstances, but generally speaking, you should be thinking about travel insurance when you're putting down deposits for flights and accommodation. Once something happens that may cancel or interrupt your trip, it is too late for insurance. If you don't have cover when injury, illness or natural disasters strike, any prepaid travel expenses will be money down the drain. If you purchase a policy with TINZ, you're covered for trip cancellation benefits from the moment you buy.  All other benefits kick in on your policy's start date.

    You can purchase up to 12 months before you travel or ten minutes before boarding your flight. This being said, the sooner you buy the better to avoid not having cover when it counts.

  • Q. Can I buy travel insurance if I’m already Overseas?
  • You sure can - TINZ offers already overseas travel insurance for New Zealand residents who have forgotten to buy cover, or are travelling when an existing policy expires.

  • Q. Does TINZ have an age limit?
  • Our single trip overseas policies have no age limit. Travellers 69 years and under can purchase a policy for a maximum trip duration of 18 months. Those 70 and over can purchase a policy for a maximum trip duration of 6 months.

    Our already overseas policies are only available to travellers 64 and under.

    Our frequent traveller policies are only available to travellers aged 64 and under.

    Our domestic policies are available to travellers of all ages, and up to a period of three months.

    Please note: if you're 80 or older any claims resulting from medical issues have a $3,000 excess.

  • Q. Are all Kids covered for free?
  • TINZ covers your kids for free, with dependants sharing the adult traveller's benefit limits. A dependant is your child or grandchild who is under 19, not engaged in full-time work, and is travelling with you for 100% of the trip.

    If you are travelling with a niece or nephew, or your child is bringing a friend on the trip, or your child is spending any of the trip out of your care, you can list them on the same policy, but they are not considered a dependant. When you're entering in their details, enter them instead as an adult traveller. You can do this on the details page after you get your initial quote. The price will update to reflect the change.

  • Q. How Do I get Cover for pre-existing conditions?
  • TINZ automatically provides cover for 35 pre-existing medical conditions for free, even if you don’t tell us about them, provided that your condition has been stable for more than 12 months, you do not intend to have surgery, treatment or a specialist review and you have not attended hospital for treatment for the condition in the past 12 months.

    If you do not meet the criteria for automatic free cover for a listed condition, or you have another condition which we do not automatically cover, you can apply for cover by completing our quick online medical assessment. This can be completed after you have your initial quote. We'll let you know if we can cover your condition and if there is any increase in the price.

  • Q. Does TINZ COVER PregnanCY?
  • We automatically cover most single pregnancies up to and inclusive of 24 weeks. We'll cover multiple pregnancies (twins, etc) up to and inclusive of 19 weeks. If you've had no complications or pre-existing conditions which a medical adviser has suggested may impact your pregnancy, you don't need to declare your pregnancy with us.

    If you've had complications or have other pre-existing conditions, you must declare your pregnancy via our online medical screening form after you've got your quote. Depending on your circumstances, we may cover you, limit your coverage - maybe hold off on the adventure sports! - or decline your coverage. Either way, you'll get a response instantly, so there's no waiting or guesswork.

    More information on travelling while pregnant can be found in our Pregnancy page.

  • Q. DoES TINZ cover Non-REsidents?
  • You can purchase a policy with us if you are permanent resident visa holder of New Zealand with unrestricted access to travel in and out of New Zealand, and have access to publicly funded health care in New Zealand. We cannot offer cover to inbound visitors to New Zealand, or temporary visas such as working holiday or student visas at this time. For more, see our Non Residents page.
