Does RACQ travel insurance have COVID-19 coverage?

RACQ does provide some coverage for COVID-19, however, it depends on your policy and level of coverage. Check the PDS for the full story on terms and conditions.

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

Cruise cover

If you’re travelling on a cruise ship, then you’ll need to purchase RACQ’s cruise travel insurance on top of your policy, even if your cruise stays within Australian waters. If you do not get this optional extra, then any claims related to any part of your journey on a cruise ship will not be covered. You can pay the premium for cruise cover on any of RACQ’s policies, which will cover you for that policy’s included benefits while on the portion of your journey that takes place on a cruise ship. 

Ski and winter sports cover 

Snow travel insurance is important if you’re hitting the slopes, and without it, you may not be covered for any claims relating to snow sports. Through RACQ, the ski and winter sports cover is only available if you pay an extra premium on top of either a Premium or Standard policy, or if you have an annual multi-trip plan. 

Are pre-existing medical conditions covered under RACQ’s travel insurance?

RACQ automatically includes cover for some pre-existing medical conditions, although you must declare your pre-existing conditions and have them listed on your certificate of insurance in order to be covered. So, make sure you disclose any conditions that you do have at the time of applying. 

While you may have to pay an extra premium for your condition, some conditions are covered under your policy’s premium already. 

If your pre-existing medical condition is not eligible for automatic cover, you must apply to have a medical assessment. Contact RACQ on 1300 338 821, or complete your medical assessment online, as part of the travel insurance quote process, at http://www.racq.com.au/travelinsurance. They will then be able to tell you if your condition can be covered. 

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

If there’s an emergency, contact RACQ’s 24-hour emergency assistance and claims line on: 

How do I make a claim with RACQ travel insurance?

To make a claim, head online to RACQ’s website and either register or log in to your account using the email address you used to purchase your policy. 

Alternatively, contact RACQ on:

You will need to have supporting documents which are relevant to your claim, like receipts, police reports, or hospital invoices. RACQ will aim to notify you of the success of your claim within 10 working days. 

Is it possible to cancel my RACQ travel insurance policy?

You can cancel your policy and receive a full refund within 21 days of purchasing it, provided you have not started your journey, have not made a claim, or intend to make a claim. If you want to cancel after the 21-day cooling-off period, then you may be able to receive a partial refund, at RACQ’s discretion. 

To talk to RACQ about cancelling your policy, call them on 1300 338 821.
