Student cover questions

You can purchase a policy from TID for your child even if they are under the age of 18 and travelling solo; just provide their details where we ask about the adult travellers.

They will be entitled to all the benefits of the policy. However, some benefits may not be applicable due to their age i.e. a 15 year old without a licence won’t be able to hire a car overseas, hence the Rental Vehicle Insurance Excess benefit would not be relevant for them.

Read the PDS for full terms, conditions and exclusions and to ensure the product suits your needs.
