Basic travel insurance

On a budget? You can still afford to cover your hard-earned money spent on your trip with our Basic travel insurance policy! Our budget policy includes the basic medical essentials and other common things that happen when travelling, such as those frustrating travel delays, lost luggage or travel documents. Basic cover is better than being stuck with large medical bills or stranded in an airport overseas.

Cancellation & luggage travel insurance

If you’re not worried about medical and dental insurance while you’re travelling and just want super basic cover, then our Cancellation & Luggage policy could be for you. You can get this cover for just $30, but you must be a resident of New Zealand and on a return ticket from New Zealand and back again.

For emergency help anywhere in the world at any time our Allianz Global Assistance Team is only a phone call away!


If you decide you no longer want the policy, you can cancel it within 15 business days of purchase and receive a full refund provided you have not started your journey and you do not want to make a claim or exercise any other right under the policy.


You will be covered from the minute you purchase your policy, just in case something happens before you depart.


“I didn’t even notice my bag was opened... now I have no passport or cash.”
Pick-pocketers can strike even the most security conscious traveller. Their methods are getting more and more sophisticated, and often you are completely unaware your bag has even been opened and your precious items are gone. Jess, one of our Travel Experts, was admiring the sights of Amsterdam when she reached into her bag for water and noticed it was unzipped. Luckily with her travel insurance policy, the 24 hour Allianz Global Assistance team helped her with how to report the crime and get her emergency travel documents sorted.

“I took ‘break a leg’ literally.”
While you might be aware of the things that could happen while you’re overseas, you rarely consider what might happen BEFORE you leave that could result in you not being able to go on your adventure. Nat, a STA Travel store manager, was planning to head away on an exciting trip to South America, but a hike in the Waitakere Ranges before departure resulted in a broken ankle. Luckily, as she had purchased travel insurance when she booked her flights, she was covered for all non-refundable cancellation charges and could re-book her trip for a few months' time.
