Top questions from members

Unfortunately not. You can only buy Huddle Travel Insurance before the start or your journey.

Things can go wrong at any time. We strongly recommend buying travel insurance as soon as you book your trip, so that you're covered for your non-refundable deposits if the unexpected happens.

Can I get cover for my valuables?

Cover for your things is included in your cover for Luggage & Personal Effect, up to $5,000 for the Basic Policy and $10,000 for the Comprehensive Policy. However, sub-limits apply so check the PDS.

You can add extra cover for a range of valuable items, such as laptops or mobile phones. Just add the Specified Luggage and Personal Effects cover during your quote.

 

If my plans change can I update my policy?

If your travel plans change and you want to extend your trip, change dates or add extra countries, just drop us a line at or call on 1300 777 200 or +61 2 8294 7772 if you’re overseas already.

 

Can I get cover if I’m on a 457 or temporary residence visa?

Yes, if you are a holder of a non-permanent residency visa who:

  • may legally reside in Australia; and
  • holds a valid Medicare card or are covered by an Australian Private Health Insurance policy that satisfies the government health insurance requirements for your visa type; and
  • has resided in Australia for at least 200 days of the 12 months immediately preceding your trip; and
  • has a home in Australia to which you intend to return to.

How can I get the lowest premium?

Different countries have different risks so where you are travelling will impact your price.
