Travel Health Insurance Cover

Travel medical insurance cover can be the most important thing you pack

Imagine you are far from home, and you fall ill or become injured. You visit the nearest hospital only to find they won’t accept your New Zealand health insurance and won’t provide you with treatment unless you can provide payment. With travel health insurance—also called medical travel insurance—you’d have coverage for emergency medical and dental treatment.

If you purchase travel medical insurance cover from us, you not only have affordable, high-quality financial cover, you also have access to a global network of health care professionals who will manage your case from start to finish, and assist you in finding the highest quality of care.

Whether you require a few stitches and a bandage, emergency surgery, or a medical evacuation back home, we will be there to help.
