Travel Insurance when Pregnant

When you fall pregnant, it's natural to want to visit your loved ones, and Travel Insurance Direct can help you make that journey.

We can cover pregnant women while travelling provided your trip ends on or before your 26th week of gestation. Although it's not part of the policy requirements, you should discuss your travel plans with your doctor before you make your arrangements.

What's covered?

  • Cancellation or rearrangement of your trip due to unexpected pregnancy complications.
What's not covered?

Claims arising from but not limited to:

  • any existing medical condition related to pregnancy;
  • a pregnancy after 26 weeks gestation;
  • expenses related to the birth of a child including care of a newborn in any circumstances; 
  • any medical expenses in Australia;
  • travelling against medical advice.

Also, you should plan your trip so you're home by the end of the 26th week. If you don't and something happens in relation to the pregnancy after that period, you won't be covered.

For information relating to policies purchased prior to 25 March 2021, please check the PDS provided with your purchase. You can contact us if you need this sent to you again.

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