Ahh, we love a sunburnt country, we bet you feel the same.
While Australia may seem just a hop, skip and a jump away, you’re still on foreign terrain.
No matter the distance, travel insurance for your trip downunder is a fair dinkum idea!
Your health is our number one priority. Our emergency assistance experts are just a phone call away 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Don’t lose out if you have to cancel your Aussie trip. We offer cover if you can no longer travel or have to return home early due to unforeseen events.
Downunder delays are a common frustration when travelling. Our policies provide you with compensation if you’re delayed more than six hours.

Do you visit Australia often? Get comprehensive cover all year round. If you’re planning several trips downunder, or elsewhere this year a frequent traveller policy can save you time & money.
Our annual multi-trip policy covers an unlimited number of trips over a 12 month period. We give you the same level of cover as our comprehensive international plan, meaning you get full coverage for less. You can tailor your individual trip duration from 15 days up to 90 days. Please note this policy is only available for customers under the age of 64.
Travelling often means stepping out of your comfort zone, even in a country as neighbourly as Australia. Flight delays, missed connections and lost luggage can thump your trip harder than a boxing kangaroo! Make sure you're covered for a range of travel disasters regardless of destination.
New Zealand and Australia share reciprocal healthcare agreements meaning you will have access to government medical facilities and care while travelling in Australia. Whilst you may be eligible for reciprocal health care in Australia, this would not cover any additional accommodation costs, flights for family members or medical repatriation to New Zealand. TINZ can help to cover these costs should the worst-case scenario occur.
Absolutely. We agree that scuba diving is a great way to explore the deep blue sea. You're only covered if you hold an open water diving license or you are diving under licensed instruction. If you are a qualified scuba diver you are covered for accompanied dives with a maximum depth of 30 metres. If you are unqualified you are covered for a maximum depth of 30 metres with an instructor.
Yes. At TINZ we cater for those who enjoy getting wet.

When it comes to alcohol we understand that for some, there’s no better way to kick off a holiday than with a poolside cocktail (or two). However, we would exclude any claims involving drugs/or alcohol. Please note this exclusion is only applicable if it was your intoxication that resulted in the claim. Refer to our PDS to see a full list of exclusions.
It depends. We will pay up to $1,000 for standard individual single items and $3,000 for personal computers, video recorders or cameras. If you have an item that exceeds either of these costs you can insure it separately up to an additional $5,000. You are only able to cover an item of jewellery for up to $1,000. For more information on insuring specific items during your travels, please refer to our high value items page.
All of TINZ's travel insurance policies cover kids at no additional cost. Your child is eligible if they are financially dependent, under twenty one (19) years, travelling together with a parent or grandparent for 100% of the holiday, and are named on the Certificate of Insurance.
