Why do I need it?

How Travelcard Real-Time™ Travel Insurance Works

Luggage delayed? Cash stolen? Sick or injured overseas? TravelCard Real-TimeTM travel insurance can help. When you take out a policy, we'll ask if you’d like a TravelCard to take on your trip. This allows you to pay expenses for approved claims so you can get back to enjoying your holiday without being out of pocket. Most claims can be managed in minutes. No excess to pay, less paperwork and no long claims process – it’s that simple.

So, if your luggage is delayed and you need PJs and a toothbrush, you can use the TravelCard to purchase what you need up to the value of $150. Or, if the matter is more serious and you have a medical issue overseas, medical expenses can be paid using the TravelCard.

How The Travelcard Works

Here’s how it works: when you purchase your TravelCard travel insurance policy, we’ll ask whether you’d also like a TravelCard. If you want one, we’ll post you a TravelCard that you can take on your trip. While you’re away, if your baggage is delayed, cash is stolen or you have a medical issue overseas, you can call our team any time for a quick solution and funds are instantly transferred to the TravelCard. We will then send an activation PIN to your mobile phone.
