Worldcare Travel Insurance Benefits
Worldcare Travel Insurance plans provide specified levels of cover from cancellation to extended benefits like travel disruption, medical, life, baggage, personal effects, money and personal liability. Whether you’re travelling locally or abroad, all Worldcare plans include 24-Hour Emergency Assistance.
Selected cover for epidemic and pandemic diseases (Covid-19)
Worldcare policies include selected cover for epidemic and pandemic diseases such as Covid-19. There is a provision to claim for cancellation and medical expenses should you contract an epidemic or pandemic disease such as Covid-19 after purchasing your policy. Cover for medical claims directly related to an epidemic or pandemic such as Covid-19 will only apply if you contract the disease after you commence your journey. There is no cover for lockdowns, changes in government alert levels, quarantine or mandatory isolation applying to a population or part of a population. As with any travel insurance, disinclination to travel due to fear or change of mind is not covered.
Cover for Pre-existing Medical Conditions
The GoComprehensive, GoFreedom and GoLocal Comprehensive plans provide automatic cover for a variety of specified Pre-existing Medical Conditions. If your Pre-existing Medical Condition is not automatically covered under these plans, you can apply for cover. If cover is confirmed and you want to proceed with your purchase, an additional premium will apply. Please note that no cover for Pre-existing Medical Conditions is available under the GoBudget and GoLocal Cancellation Only plans.
Selecting your Travel Insurance Plan
Check which Worldcare plan best suits your travel needs. Compare benefit levels, then review the Policy Wording and request a quote online. Your quote will provide excess options and a price for our GoComprehensive, GoBudget and GoLocal Comprehensive plans. Select the excess level and plan that best suits your travel plans and the level of cover that you require for your trip. An excess will apply to each separate event giving rise to a claim unless you pay a higher premium for a No Excess policy.
The GoComprehensive plan provides the highest level of cover whereas the GoBudget plan provides lower benefit levels. If you travel more frequently, the Worldcare GoFreedom plan provides the same benefit levels as our GoComprehensive plan, but has been created for customers that take multiple journeys over the course of a year. The GoComprehensive and GoBudget plans can be purchased online. The GoFreedom plan can only be purchased over the phone with one of the Customer Care team.
Travelling around New Zealand? GoLocal provides cover for domestic travel around our backyard with two plan options. GoLocal Comprehensive provides higher benefits levels and the option to add on a Cruise pack if you’re taking a cruise. Meanwhile, GoLocal Cancellation Only has been designed for those who only want cover for cancellation costs, should you be forced to cancel your trip before you go.
Whichever plan you choose, you will have access to 24-Hour Emergency Assistance while you travel.
