Had to place a claim for lost luggage informed Insurance actioned instantly . Insurance company maintained fortnightly contact with supportive role really amazing .Excellent customer service. Still ongoing have shown diligence in the recovery of the suitcase. MY partner who has MND has made the experience of a claim simplified
I found BUPA very good value for money. I had a preexisting medical condition that I wanted included in my cover and I was given fantastic support in applying by a customer support person over ther phone.
I am an Expat Aussie, living in the USA. As I was returning to Australia for a temporary visit of 5 months I inquired whether you had a policy available for this purpose. A few responses and then left hanging. Was only trying to spend my money in Australia instead of the USA company I usually use.
Immediate caring service
Setting up was as easy as going into a Bupa office
At all times the company acted at top level. Unfortunately we needed to claim and it couldn't have been easier. Excelllent phone assistance when needed.
Proactive service provider appreciated
The process of taking out the policy was very straightforward. Fortunately, I didn't need to make a claim but I was impressed that, whilst on my travels, when two terrorist events happened in the UK, I received an email advising me what to do if I needed assistance. This proactive approach was appreciated. I will definitely use again.
Highly satisfied, will use for future insurance.
I fractured my Elbow while snowboarding (on trail). I submitted receipts for XRays, Painkillers and a follow up doctors visit which was all reimbursed within about 2 weeks of being submitted. The people over the phone were and easy to deal with.
The price can be slightly higher than other companies however they seem ethical, from my experience (which cannot be said for some other companies) so worth seriously considering.

Straight forward travel insurance
It was easy to purchase standard cover online - it would have been great if pre-existing conditions could be dealt with as simply. As it was, decided to take the risk that there was nothing that would happen related to well-controlled and recently reviewed medical conditions. With the discount for Bupa members it was good value.

Peace of Mind
Our policy was easy to set up. We were contacted after the Manchester & London atrocities to see if we were ok. Fortunately we were but appreciated the offer of support if needed. Felt so sad for those affected.

Easy to set up online and great service during our travel
Policy was very easy to set up. We never needed to make a claim, however we really appreciated the support emails we received when there were incidents in countries we had added to our policy. We would definitely recommend Bupa Travel Insurance. In fact, we took out a second policy with Bupa after we decided extend our travel plans and wouldn't hesitate to use Bupa again in the future.
Good to go away and have confidence knowing you are covered.
It was good knowing you has the best coverage if anything went wrong, and it nearly did, left my camera on a seat and was still there when we went back.
Existing Medical Conditions: I thought that i could and would be able to get Travel insurance from my health insurer Bupa however I was declined. So what does a person do these days. Have had a heart attack, 1stent inserted and have since been on medication to prevent this happening again this was 14 years ago. Your fine print says if my condition changes reapply, well I'm on this medication for the rest of my life to prevent another attack and so are thousands of people.. So does this mean I cannot travel overseas, the only restriction to th...at has been made by you. All i want is peace of mind while on a holiday, and prepared to pay extra. Please do not reply by using i am sorry we haven't met your expectations. The expectation was that being a health insurer i would be able to obtain travel insurance. May i suggest you revisit pre existing conditions we live normal long lives which is being managed by our health professionals and the medication etc. that make that happen.
Seniors Travelling with confidence
Being over 70 other companies quoted ridiculous prices, so when I went to my private medical insurer, I was so surprised at the comprehensive cover, and the difference in price was extraordinary. We are in pretty good health for our ages, and will be travelling again next year. thank you for not considering us a burden because of our age!
Cruise trip around Kimberley coast.
Taking out my travel insurance for my just completed trip was easy and efficient through Bupa. Fortunately I did not need to make a claim. I will re-assess after my next trip overseas in August.
Travel insurance review
I was very happy with my travel insurance the cost & also the assistance I received in setting up the travel insurance. The lady was so helpful as I have previously had breast cancer & I also a Diabetic. But fortunately I did not require assistance while overseas. I will certainly use Bupa again for travel insurance
Cheapest Travel Insurance Ever
Great value. Walked into BUPA Office and completed within 10 mins. Covered everything and better than other insurances. Didn't need to use it but it was great to know we were covered by our Health Fund.
Fantastic Customer service. My Travle Insurance policy was set up within 15 minutes. The lady explained how the insurance worked, what it did and didn't cover and I was able to make payment in my prefered method..
Peace of mind
I am a suffer of MND. Disclosing this when setting up insurance did not pose a problem so I left Australia for China insured and with peace of mind. Easy to set up and great value for money.
Easy and Good Travel Insurance
The policy was good value for money, covered all areas that we required for our trip, easy to set up with Bupa and the customer service officer knewcwhat she was talking about.
Didn't need to claim
The policy was easy to set up (as you would expect) but I did not have a claim which would allow for a more meaningful evaluation, therefore, I gave it 3 stars.
A must have!
We did not need to use our travel insurance in our 3 weeks away which was wonderful. As we are a mature couple we believe it is a must have when traveling abroad.
Excellent with great customer service
I travelled to Thailand for 18 days. Bupa Travel Insurance representative explained the overall insurance for my needs, with excess explained, as most insurance do have an excess.
Thankfully I did not get sick, but my friend did, and he was covered by his own insurance which of course I forced him to take out. On the last leg of the travel, he got food poisoning in Bangkok, and had to be hospitalised.
Thank you Bupa, and I always take our travel insurance when I am travelling.
- Bupa Travel Insurance
Thankfully, No need for a claim.
As a Bupa (previously other names), customer for over 40 years I gave 5 star rating for them as I found their staff very clear, professional, concise and taking the time to fully explain most, if not every thing in the policy. I found it excellent value for money and very easy to arrange.
AS for CGU I cannot attest to their practices regarding claims as I/We have not needed to make a claim. Will continue to use Bupa until negative experience has been had.
Thanks Bupa at the very least.
It is a Scammer
I bought a travel insurance for traveling overseas Jan 2017. The insurance policy was covering different things including Overseas Dental with $200 excess, I had an emergency situation with too much pain and had to fix it just to avoid pain to come back Australia, I claimed and they said we only pay for accidents or in some situation like someone punch in your face !!! why someone should punch in my face and I need to insure myself for punch? Í travelled almost 40 countries for wildlife photography which most of them are dangerous and never someone punched me. What do you mean?
Insurance for pre-exisiting condition
Excellent and clear information on cover for pre-existing (bulged disc in back). Easy process after speaking with many other insurers. It did help that we had been with BUPA for some 12 years!
Bupa Travel Insurance - CGU
People please do not waste your time and money taking out travel insurance with Bupa c/o CGU. Our flights got cancelled less than 24hrs before departure (Tiger Air) due to the airline not meeting certain regulations... None the less, we had to then purchase other flights and fork out for extra accomodation as this had been booked and paid for to - as we ended up leaving two days later than planned.
Contacted the insurer only to be told that this is not covered. However under their policy this type of situation is covered but then two pages lat...
Questions & Answers
Will it cover my pregnancy ? A C-Section in USA I will be travelling US to give birth so will cover the delievery ??? What are the conditions and procedure
I am travelling to Thailand for an extended stay as I do each year.
I own a motorcycle over there.
Yes I have an Australian motorcycle licence and a Thai motorcycle licence and wear a helmet.
Now my concern.
I worry about lying on the road somewhere after an accident and being taken to a private hospital
Am I covered for private hospital?
I need a policy that will cover private care because the public hospitals are bad
Even Thai people say they might die in public hospital system.
Just need peace of mind that if something happens I can get good emergency treatment at a private hospital
Hi Phil, It might be better to talk to BUPA themselves as our particular policy said that we weren't covered for quad bikes or motorcycles in Bali. They were great when we asked questions so hopefully you can give them your scenario and they will give you a direct answer.
Hi there, may I ask if non-Australian is eligible for the BUPA travel insurance and does it covers pregnancy? I'm a Malaysian and going to Australia for holiday. I'm looking for travel insurance that can cover pregnancy while in Australia.
