International travel insurance

Message 1 of 3 399 Views
To be eligible for the travel insurance- Do I need to have paid for my international flights from Australia with my card or is spending more than $500 on overseas travel expenses (train passes & europe to UK Flights & car hire) enough to qualify?

Hi @Tru, as long as you  have spent more than $500 on prepaid travel expenses you should be covered. You can check this with Allianz Global Assistance on 1800 785 918. Thanks!

Update & Note to all other forum users:

I called the Allianz Global Assistance hotline @LyndsC provided in her response and spoke to a rep there. He confirmed that the return flight tickets from/to Australia had to have been purchased using the card AS WELL AS spending the $500 travel expenses on the card. Both requirements need to be met. Not just the latter.

I bought the flights before I got my BankWest card, So Im not eligible for the complimentary travel insurance coverage.
Bit disappointed but c'est la vie.
I had a policy before I got the card anyway - but it doesn't hurt to be extra clear on the full, specific details before I cancelled that other travel insurance policy.
