>> Travellers Insurance with the Right Attitude
If you're the kind of traveller that's more into exploring the quiet backstreets of the major cities, spontaneous out-of-the-way journeys using your ingenuity to stretch one dollar into ten, and travel that seeks to understand local cultures rather than barge right through them, iTrek's travellers insurance has been designed just for you.
At iTrek we know travel costs, and that most of our customers are backpackers and families with more love for travel than money, therefore, we offer medical travellers insurance divided into regions of the world so you don't have to spend one cent more than necessary on your travel insurance.
All our discount policies: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum - have Overseas Emergency Assistance included as standard, a level of assistance that includes hospital case management, second opinions if surgery is required, 24/7 reverse call number for urgent advice, legal referral advice, assistance with emergency travel planning, and loads more.
Bronze: If you figure 'B' is for Budget then this ultra cheap policy is for you. For less than you'd expect you'll enjoy unlimited emergency medical, hospital and evacuation, urgent dental treatment, emergency cash, $1m Personal Liability and repatriation.
Silver: This policy provides additional cover for your essential emergency expenses and includes cancellation fees and lost deposits in case your vacation plans go belly up.
Gold: Gold cover provides Great value travelers insurance covering lost or stolen luggage and personal effects, a boost to $2m Personal Liability and a higher level for cancellation fees and deposits.
Platinum: If 'P' means Plush for you then this is the policy you want. You might be backpacking on a budget but your traveller's insurance is first class with full cover that includes delayed luggage and travel, lost or stolen traveller's cheques, cash, credit cards and documents, trip resumption, unlimited cancellation fees and lost deposits and $2.5m Personal Liability.
Standard extras in our policies include skiing and a range of snow sports, perfect if you decide to holiday at some of the high altitude ski fields.
At iTrek, we're aligned with AIG (American International Group) Travel Assist should you need emergency medical assistance and/or evacuation and offer policies for single trip, multi-trip and annual travel, for as short as a week or up to 18 months, plus you can renew your policy while you're away if you get the chance to linger longer.
And because we sell our high-value travellers insurance online you get the best low-price travellers insurance around.
