- Details of any police or other emergency services that were involved
Please have a pen and paper handy, as we may provide you with some important information that you will need to take note of.
Note: Unless you are the policy holder or a named person listed on the policy, we may not be able to discuss the incident with you for privacy and security reasons.
Will I have to pay an excess if a claim is payable under my travel insurance policy?
An excess may be payable. Details of any excess will be contained in your Policy Documents. The excess is an amount which is deducted from the amount of benefit we will pay you if you make a successful claim.
Excess amounts vary depending on the type of travel insurance policy you take out and the type of event you are claiming for. Many types of claim, such as emergency medical assistance, do not generally incur an excess.
Please check the Policy Disclosure Statement and your policy document for full details of the excess amounts that apply to your policy.
