Common questions

Got questions about travel insurance? We’ve got answers

Am I covered for the cancellation of travel arrangements as a result of the Coronavirus?

For policies purchased on or after 23 January 2020, there is no cover for the cancellation of travel arrangements as a result of the Coronavirus. HBF travel insurance does not provide cover for any outbreak of infectious diseases or viruses that occurred before the commencement of your policy. For more information, read our Coronavirus service message.

Are my flights covered with travel insurance?

If you need to cancel your flights due to unforeseen circumstances, we’ll reimburse you the purchase cost*. If you used frequent flyer points, we’ll pay you the value of those points. If your flights are delayed or interrupted for over 6 hours outside of your control, we can cover additional accommodation, meals and expenses incurred while you wait.

Are existing medical conditions covered?

We cover 44 pre-existing medical conditions, as listed in the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS), at no additional cost. To find out if your condition is covered, we’ll ask you questions when you get a quote. If your condition is not on the list, you may need to complete a medical assessment.
