Travel insurance

I have purchased all my accommodation for an up coming holiday (but not my flights) using my breeze credit card.

Do I still qualify for travel insurance?

Hi @cabreu, to be eligible for our complimentary travel insurance using a Bankwest Platinum MasterCard credit card account, you need to have purchased a return overseas travel ticket before 

leaving Australia and spend at least A$500 on your prepaid travel costs using the card. This would mean as long as you have pre-paid at least $500AU of accommodation you would be covered. You can check out the full details of this in the Complimentary Credit Card insurance booklet. Thanks!

For some strange reason I was not able to purchase my flights via BPAY using the credit card and had to use my other account.

I have however have purchased over $2K worth of accommodation on the card.

Does this mean I am NOT covered by the travel insurance?

It would be best to check with Allianz Global Assistance on 1800 785 918 if you're unsure @cabreu, however the booklet above does state that as long as the travel expenses are pre-paid you would be eligible. So if the accommodation has been charged to your credit card prior to leaving it's likely you would be covered.
