Does Chubb travel insurance have COVID-19 cover?

Chubb travel insurance covers some COVID-19-related claims. The sorts of things they cover include any costs incurred due to having to cancel, shorten, or change your planned trip because you catch Covid, as well as overseas medical expenses which you might be billed for due to catching Covid while overseas. 

It’s important to note that Chubb will not provide cover for Covid if you have travelled against a Smartraveller ‘Do not travel’ warning, if you catch Covid before you’ve booked your policy, or in the case of border closures caused by the pandemic.

What other optional extras can I add to my Chubb policy?

If you’re planning on going skiing, sailing into the horizon on a cruise ship, or hiring a rental car on your overseas trip, then you may need to look into the optional extras which Chubb offers, as they won’t be covered by their standard policies. 

These optional extras typically incur an extra premium, on top of what your base policy costs. 

Chubb travel insurance optional extras include:

Are pre-existing medical conditions covered under Chubb travel insurance?

Chubb travel insurance does not cover any pre-existing medical conditions

What exclusions are there to look out for in a Chubb travel insurance policy?

While some travel insurance policies offer cover for ‘adventure activities’, whether as a part of the base policies or as an optional extra, not all activities or sports will be covered all the time. 

In the Chubb travel insurance PDS, it states that the following examples of holiday activities are NOT eligible for cover: 

That’s why it’s always important to read through the PDS when deciding if a policy is right for you. 

What do I do if there’s an emergency during my trip?

In the event of an emergency, contact Chubb travel insurance’s emergency assistance line at +61 2 8907 5666 to get help. 

If it’s not an emergency, then you can contact Chubb Customer Service at 1800 803 548. 

How do I make a claim with Chubb travel insurance?

To make a claim on your Chubb travel insurance policy, head online to the Chubb Claims Centre

You’ll need to have:

You’ll need to lodge your claim and supporting documents within 30 days of the event happening, or as soon as you can. 

Is it possible to cancel my Chubb travel insurance policy?

You’ll have a 14-day cooling-off period from the day you receive your certificate of insurance in which you can cancel your policy for a full refund of your premium. 

After the initial 14 days, you may still be eligible for a partial refund of your premium, depending on the unused portion of your premium and if you’ve started your trip or not.

I was quickly reimbursed of my claims. The first claims handler was not efficient and did not deal with my claim for 8 months but then I was passed off to a guy and he provided amazing support. Customer service excellent, claims handlers are very polite, calm and efficient. My situation was dealt with very seriously once I requested someone else to deal with my claims and my claim was processed super quick. I’m very grateful and thankful to such an amazing travel insurance company.

Great to deal with after Covid-19 caused holiday cancellation. Initially it was tough to get the claim accepted for cancellation but once the Aus govt issued 'Do Not Travel' advice for all countries Chubb was prompt and fair in all dealings and were even prompting me to respond to emails at one point. Would certainly recommend to peers.
