    Is it safe to go with TID, come claim time?

    •  

      Never had to make a claim despite purchasing coverage a few times. I always wonder this too. I need to take out insurance for a 4 week trip next year. TID seems to be up there among the main insurers they seem to all have some mixed stories. Another competitive one is Southern Cross travel insurance. Am trying to decide which to go with at the moment!!

        Broke an s7 and they paid out very quickly for screen repair - then I found out samsung wouldnt repair the screen (grey) so I had to send the s7 in and am waiting but very similar to world nomads if you have used them. I assume they are the same company with out looking.

    thanks was literally just about to buy travel insurance.

    What are these guys like? Any major exclusions?

    I will be going to Bali and may be motorcycling. I often hear about claims being denied for motorcycling or injuries that happen after drinking.

    Anyone have any experience in that area.
    Otherwise seems pretty cheap.

      Have a look at their website they have a pretty friendly explanation of what's excluded. Be careful, often in Bali etc while it is custom to do certain things, i.e. ride without a motorbike license, it is in fact illegal and uninsurable

      •  

        Yes that's the biggie - if you don't have a motorcycle license in your home country you are pretty well uninsurable for motorcycle use.

        Google the Canberra couple in Phuket in the last week or so - stranded there after a motorcycle accident coz they cannot afford the $80k medical repatriation.

    Just be sure to get the PDS and go over it with a fine tooth thingo. Any questions, email and ask to get it in writing.

    I always use TID. They are very helpful. I actually made a claim a few years ago after booking a holiday on Herron Island. There was a fire prior to our holiday which closed the island down. TID made it very easy and processed the refund of airfares less taxes. My Queensland Holiday , the company I booked the land content with, however, delayed giving me my refund for what felt like a very long time.I had to resort to phoning them daily.

    i'm going to japan next month and was wondering if anyone could recommend me a company to go with for travel insurance (22 y.o)

    •  

      In the same boat, except 1 month after you and 1 year older than you xD

      I was looking at Virgin Money Travel Insurance, as it's much cheaper (using code MATESRATES). However, upon further inspection, it doesn't appear to cover cancellation/delay caused by airlines/transport (only if due to a strike, riot, hijack, civil protest, weather, natural disaster). So if something were to go wrong, would probably end up with a lot of money out of pocket.

      TID seems to cover for this (up to a certain limit) if you pick the more expensive option, but I'm still trying to figure out the fine print.

      For 20 days in Japan, it equates to roughly $30 extra to go with TID (given cashrewards gives 4.2% back), so I may just end up getting TID.

        haha enjoy your trip!

        TID looks goods but the sale is only for 2 days and i haven't done enough research to just buy their insurance just yet.. i was recommended iTrek as well. I might look into it at work tomorrow and compare.

  •  

    Could not find where to enter the code.

  •  

    Do they cover road trips (~4000km)? From the quote it appears that they only cover when you travel domestic using airlines.

  •  

    Southern Cross looks significantly cheaper.

    And the basics package doesn't cover lost/stolen passports!

  •  

    In the last 5 days they've added a bit of a 'blacklist with conditions' for certain medical conditions.. wow!

    The field to enter the code disappears if you go via cashrewards.

    /edit actually you can get it to appear just need to log in and out on the page with snow options until it appears under the charity option

    •  

      Code is still working. With CR you have to just activate it on the page, remove TID cookies and refresh page :)
