The vast expanse of the Andes, the stunning beaches of Rio and the Gaucho cuisine of Argentina – that's just the tip of South American iceberg! However, with food poisoning, the ever-present threat of robbery and theft there's a lot that can go wrong. That's why TID offers cover for a South American Adventure.
Here are some of the cover benefits available with your policy.
Insurance if you have to cancel your trip due to unforeseeable events outside of your control (e.g. sudden illness).
If your flight is cancelled by the Airline for operational reasons we cover the reasonable cost of meals and accommodation.
Compensation for unforeseen medical expenses incurred whilst on an overseas holiday
Cover back to Australia if a medical practitioner requires you to be medically escorted home due to a sudden illness or injury that happens on your trip.
We have two International plans to select from with different levels of cover.
Our most popular & comprehensive travel insurance plan - think first class without the price tag.
South America is just a vast continent that there's no single ‘perfect time’ to visit. For example, June may be the best time to visit the Amazon but February is the best time to visit the Galapagos. We suggest you look into the best time to travel country by country as opposed to the whole continent.
Robbery and assault can be common in some parts of South America. TID has a 24/7 Emergency Assistance team that is on hand to help if you become a victim. After contacting local authorities and obtaining a police report, you should contact our 24/7 emergency team. You should call them as soon as possible and they will arrange for medical care on the ground for you (if needed).
If your flights are cancelled, delayed or rescheduled due to severe weather conditions in Nepal, cover is available for reasonable additional travel and accommodation expenses.
