Coles Travel Insurance Plans

Compared to other travel insurance products, the plans offered by Coles Travel Insurance are more limited, and further restricted by only being available when booking through flybuys travel.

  • International Cover – Standard International Cover offers benefits most commonly used or needed during international travel, but excludes benefits such as Special Events, Loss of Income, Disability, and Accidental Death. These benefits, and higher limits on some other benefits, are only available when selecting International Comprehensive Cover. However, both policies only apply to single trips, with no annual or multi-trip policy offered by Coles. You must be 70 years old or younger at the time the policy is issued.
  • Domestic Cover – Coles Travel Insurance does not offer any form of comprehensive domestic travel insurance, with the only benefits available for domestic travel being for Ticket Protection and Luggage and Travel Documents. You must be 69 years old or younger at the time the policy is issued.

Coles Travel Insurance and Recreational Activities

Participation in certain recreational activities is automatically covered with either of the two International Travel policies offered by Coles Insurance. These include abseiling, bungy jumping, horse riding, jet skiing, white water rafting, and others as listed in the relevant Product Disclosure Statement (PDS). Amateur snow sports and riding of motorcycles is also covered, but with specific conditions attached to both, and certain general exclusions applying to all recreational activities. It is important for travellers to know what these are as they could affect claims submitted to Coles Insurance.

Pre-Existing Medical Conditions and Coles Travel Cover

Coles Travel Insurance does not offer any cover for pre-existing medical conditions on the International Travel policy. That means they will not process any claims directly or indirectly related to any pre-existing medical conditions you or your travel companions have. It is also important to note that the health of relatives or business partners not travelling with you could also affect claims, particularly in relation to travel amendment or cancellation costs. Certain pre-existing medical conditions – with specific criteria attached to each – are included with Domestic Cover, but this would be in relation to the Ticket Protection benefit, since domestic travel does not include any cover for medical treatment.

24-Hour emergency assistance is available to both domestic and international travellers 365 days a year, though certain services are only available if you submit a claim and it is approved. Before contacting the emergency assistance team make sure you have your policy number available, along with a contact number they can call you back on.
