Historic cities that have stood for centuries, breathtaking Renaissance architecture and a food scene that is the envy of the world, it’s little wonder why Italy is a must do for travellers. However, with severe weather, industrial strikes and the threat of pasta related mishaps there’s a lot that can go wrong on your adventure. TID has cover available for the 'What ifs' of travel to Italy.

Italy travel insurance FAQs.

Can travel insurance cover my flight cancellation due to an airline strike in Italy?

Yes, cover is available under your TID policy for the cost of rearranging your trip as a result of corporate takeover or strike that results in your flights being cancelled. To be covered, you must have purchased your policy before the event was known.

Does Medicare cover my medical expenses in Italy?

No. As Australia and Italy do not have a reciprocal healthcare agreement any emergency medical expenses you incur will have to be paid out of your pocket or covered by your travel insurer.

I’m renting a car in Italy, how to do I ensure my travel insurance covers the car rental excess?

The Works and Annual Multi Trip policies offered by TID automatically offer cover for rental vehicle insurance excess. The default cover is $4,000, this can be increased up to $6,000 for an additional premium.
