Allergies

Automatically covered medical conditions

We automatically cover allergies, provided you follow advice in accordance with your medical practitioner (such as to carry EpiPens, antihistamines/other preventative medication at all times) and, at the time you buy your policy, you:

  • have no other known or underlying respiratory conditions or diseases (for example, asthma); and
  • have not required treatment from a medical practitioner for your allergies in the last six months.

More Information

For more information about travelling with your allergy, please go to Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia.

If you don't satisfy the above criteria to be automatically covered for allergies you are welcome to contact nib Travel Insurance who offer a specialist medical screening for existing medical conditions on travel insurance policies. They may be able to assist you with a quote for cover. Assessment of your existing medical condition is available online during the quote process or over the phone. You may ring 1300 410 272 to be assessed; just have details of your medical history ready when you call.

This is a brief summary of cover only and does not include the full terms, conditions, limitations and exclusions. Read the PDS before purchasing.
