When you’re going on holiday you should be planning for adventures, not cancellations. Activate Pre-Trip Cancellation Cover to help cover you for life’s pre-trip mishaps.
- You can claim up to $500 for your portion of:
- Transport costs (like car rental, trains, buses and flights)
- Accommodation costs (like hotel rooms, Airbnb and bed and breakfasts)
- Entertainment or excursion tickets that were part of a trip
- Training or conference costs
- Simply changing your mind about a trip
- Expenses not paid for with PayPal
- A travel agent’s cancellation fee
- You’re covered for one successful claim per year and will receive your refund within five business days.
When can you claim?
You can claim on Pre-Trip Cancellation Cover if you need to cancel your holiday because:
- You fall ill or have an accidental injury which renders you unfit for travel
- There’s a fire, flood or burglary at your home
- The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) has issued a ‘do not travel’ or ‘reconsider your need to travel’ warning for the destination of your trip overseas
- You need to sit an official examination when you would have been away
- A relative or business partner unexpectedly passes away
- You experience any other unforeseen circumstance outside of your control, which necessitates the cancellation of a trip
Travelling with a friend?
Ask them to activate too. If they have an Australian PayPal account and have activated Pre-Trip Cancellation Cover, their portion of their own travel costs can be reimbursed too, up to $500 in one claim each year.
