Excellent travel insurance

published

We purchased travel insurance with BUPA and I can only commend them for their professionalism & service. We had to cancel our trip to China due to CoVID-19 and BUPA refunded all our travel expenses. I won’t hesitate to use them again a special shout out to Julieanne at BUPA who processed our claim.

Customer service staff exceptional!!!!

published

We needed to talk to Bupa Travel insurance phone staff whilst we were overseas and back in Australia and I was exceptionally impressed on their outstanding customer service. They were both so friendly and courteous and explained what I needed to do, for our situation, in an easy to understand way. I felt extremely supported and comforted by their level of expertise and guidance. Our policy was a very reasonable cost and our claim was handled with great ease and efficiency. This will be our 'go to' policy for every Travel insurance need we have in the future. Thank you so much.

Helpful with first time claim settled

published

I used Bupa travel insurance for a trip to Europe last year, I made a claim as airport lines and set up made me miss my flight and as result of this the return trip was then cancelled by the flight operator. I purchased alternative tickets to get to and from my destination. I made a claim when I got back home and they were helpful in telling me what information I need to support and process my claim.

The process was simple and straight forward and very happy that I went with them.

Insurance Claim settled quickly and profesionally

published

Unfortunately due to becoming ill I was unable to travel and my travelling companion and had to cancel ouroverseas holiday. We rang Bupa claims and they organised a claims consultant who listed the necessary documentation they needed. We sent this through Friday and had our total claim approved on Monday including the visa's and medical expenses incurred. We highly recommend using Bupa travel insurance - good value for money, the claims service was professional and prompt. Very impressed.

Bupa Travel Insurance comprehensive & affordable

I've used Bupa Travel insurance for several years now.The Customer Service each time has been excellent. Fortunately I have not experienced any mishaps & haven't needed to make a claim. I'd expect the same positive outcomes and service if I did.

BUPA Travel Insurance? Simple!

published

We travel a lot and have used BUPA Travel Insurance for years. Getting BUPA insurance by phone is easy, and represents great value for money. They know our medical history and accept pre-existing conditions that other insurers just do not touch. We have rarely had to claim, but BUPA's Claims service is outstanding; their staff are exceptionally helpful; and payment is made promptly and without difficulty. What is promised is what is delivered, and we won't consider changing!

Value for money...

published

I took out Bupa Travel as it was a feature of my policy; in terms of value for money I couldn't have asked for better. The customer service which was provided in the initial instance could not be faulted and the amount i paid for the level of cover provided was very satisfying.

I will definitely insure through Bupa travel again.

Affordable....

published

It was easy to get the travel insurance and sent it to me through email. I was happy with the price they quoted me and it was affordable. I have used Bupa twice already although during these times no claims have been made. I might have Bupa again in the near future.

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.
