Online Travel Insurance


Received an email regarding travel insurance with an added 10% off to their members 15% off. If you have an existing medical condition and it's approved online, you MUST phone Bupa. Bupa, however, are unable to give you the extra 10% as it only applies to online. Works well if you have no premedical condition.

No cover for Liquidation


I have been using Bupa travel insurance recently. However I will use others next time. One of the tour providers for my last trip was placed into liquidation 2 days before the scheduled trip despite being accredited by ATAS and AFTA.. The industry accreditation was worthless and Bupa does not cover insolvency. So I am searching for a new travel insurance provider. QBE looks like it might meet my needs but I’m still looking.

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.

Not the answer I wanted to hear.


My holiday was great until I fell over and broken the lens and filter of my SLR camera. But I thought thats OK I've got my travel insurance to cover it. It was a reasonably priced policy and it was with my medical insurance after all just had to get online to set up and pay for it. What a bad decision that was. It was, in hind sight, it was my fault for not reading the fine print that said $200 excess. So I'm out of pocket the 170 dollars for the policy and 150 dollars for the new replacement lens. Customer support was nice about the excess and apologetic that they couldn't help me. But I'm going to be finding another travel insurance the next time. Thanks for nothing.

Welcome Home


Got an email to say welcome home, problem is we haven't been yet. Quickly checked policy to make sure dates are right on my policy, and they are correct...thank goodness. Maybe Bupa should check your automated email service as it can cause a lot of stress.

Hi there,
Sorry to hear about the confusion caused, the email is supposed to arrive after you return home.
I have sent you a private message requesting your policy details, if you could send these through and look into how this occurred.

Good coverage- but terrible when it actually came to claim


We have used Bupa twice for travel insurance for their good coverage. Unfortunately, we had to make a claim from our last trip and 2 months on from starting the claim they haven't processed it. Much too slow and their customer service has not been great.

Am I covered for private hospital?
I need a policy that will cover private care because the public hospitals are bad

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.
