Important information

Getting the right cover is important. That’s why we’ve put all the extra information you need in one, easy to use place. 

If you need to make a claim we won't make you wade through paperwork. QBE has a 24-hour emergency claims number. In most cases, you need just provide details over the phone. To make a claim, call 1300 734 729.

An excess may apply to a claim you make under your policy. The amount of the excess is shown on your Certificate of Insurance. This excess will apply to each event that results in a claim.

While we do our best to arrange cover for everyone, some claims arising directly or indirectly from pre-existing medical or dental conditions are excluded under your travel insurance policy.
