Travel insurance

Buying your travel insurance is a non-compulsory part of organizing your holiday in New Zealand. We recommend that all our customers take out a policy, but many people overlook this necessity due to the additional expense. Failing to take out insurance is a decision that many travellers regret at a later stage, as they end up spending their holiday spending money on replacement of belongings or medical treatment.

We work in partnership with Columbus Direct to offer the New Zealand holidaymaker some of the most affordable travel policies around. From the 20-year-old backpacker to the 60-year-old couple on a relaxing retreat; Columbus can provide the ideal holiday insurance package for you.

Your travel insurance policy can cover you against the following expenses on your Kiwi holiday:

  • Medical expenses
    New Zealand has a reciprocal health agreement with the UK to provide free emergency health treatment. Medical consultation and medication for minor illnesses or injuries during your trip will be professional and reliable but very expensive; a travel insurance policy can help towards these costs.
     
  • Cancellation
    You can claim back a percentage of the cost of your holiday if you, for example, suffer injury, death of a relative or spouse or become pregnant. The circumstances must be deemed viable by Columbus.
     
  • Theft of belongings/baggage
    If your suitcase or hand luggage is stolen, you may be able to claim on your insurance policy for the cost of its contents and the inconvenience during your travels.
     
  • Loss of travel documents
    If you misplace your tickets before or during your holiday, your insurance should cover the cost of their replacement.
     
  • Loss or theft of money
    Reimbursement for the value of stolen cash or traveler’s cheques.
     
  • Medical treatment for a pre-existing condition - If you are traveling to New Zealand and are already suffering from a condition that may require treatment whilst on holiday, you can purchase a travel insurance policy to help cover these costs.
