First of all, if you’re pregnant, congratulations! You’re probably aware that travelling while pregnant is inherently risky, and you want to know that you’ll be covered when you’re travelling. This is one of those instances in where you should really read the policy wording, or give us a call.
There are a few tricky bits to consider. We do try to spell it out as clearly as possible, but you really want to be sure. It’s also important to remember that travel insurance only covers unforeseen, emergency medical treatment, so any routine check-ups you need to have while you're overseas won’t be covered. Before you plan a trip, chat to your doctor about your condition and get the all-clear on any pre-existing conditions.
*On The Works and Annual Multi Trip plans, sub-limits apply.
For full terms, conditions, limitations and exclusions please read the policy wording.
We have four plans to select from with different levels of cover.
Our most popular & comprehensive travel insurance plan - think first class without the price tag.
Great value travel cover at a super competitive price - think economy with extra leg room.
I’m glad you asked. Zika virus is considered a pandemic now, as it’s been detected all over the world.. If you’re pregnant and you haven’t bought a policy, or bought the policy after finding out you’re pregnant, there’s no cover for anything related to Zika, including cancelling your trip. If, after you’ve bought the policy, you find out you’re pregnant, that’s a different story. You may be eligible for cover under policy.
If you’re pregnant with a single child, there’s no cover under the policy for anything pregnancy-related after the 26th week. If you have a multiple pregnancy, cover ceases at the end of the 19th week.
Unfortunately, there’s no cover for childbirth, ante-natal care or the care of a newborn under the policy. Any medical bills associated with this won’t be covered.
It’s worth noting that airlines also have policies regarding pregnant passengers, and may limit your ability to fly. It’s never a bad idea to carry a note from your doctor confirming the duration of the pregnancy and that you’re fit to fly. Contact the airlines directly to see what restrictions may apply.
