Don't Leave Home Without ItTravel Insurance - Basics
I can't feel comfortable traveling without this cover. And I always talk to friendly, helpful people whenever I communicate with FastCover. I think the fellow who set up my policy was named Chris. He was Excellent. I'll feel totally comfortable when I start my journey on December 27.
Thank you FastCover.

Such a high standard of customer service with Fast-coverTravel Insurance - Domestic Plus
A great company that is willing to go the extra mile to support their customers. This policy I put in the wrong dates when a computer glitch made me have to start all over again and I was feeling exhausted. I emailed "A" and received a call back from "E" then "A" the customer service team. Who sorted it out quickly and without complaint. Thanks to them for their patience and kindness. We have been using Fast-cover since 2016 - continue to choose them.Show details

This was surprisingly easy.Travel Insurance - Comprehensive
The consultant obviously had access to the details of my earlier quote from Cover-More Insurance, and so she did not require me to go through all of the details (for my wife and I) again. This saved time and stress for me.Show details

Haven’t started my travels yet and hopefully I won’t need to use the insurance but it was very straightforward to compare the 3 levels. I really like email that goes to the emergency contact - great ideaShow details

Exactly What I NeededTravel Insurance - Comprehensive
I had received complimentary travel insurance via my credit card for a long overseas vacation, but this did not cover the entire duration of the experience. That company were unable to help me extend my insurance, and had no idea how and if I could get partial insurance to cover the last section of the trip. The consultants were operating from an overseas call centre. I went online, typed 'Partial Travel Insurance' into Google, and there was Fast Cover. Within minutes I was talking to Dylan from Fast Cover, from within Australia, who assured me that partial insurance could be purchased, and minutes after that, he had created my policy. I could not be happier with the professional service or the product.Show details

Questions & Answers
Hello, I am keen to purchase travel insurance cover from an Australian company for Vietnam and Cambodia. I have not come across any customer reviews whose claims have been neither accepted, resolved or denied. It's so easy to recommend an insurance company where there has been (luckily) no need to claim. Can you supply any reviews from customers who have had the misfortune of having to claim?
I would like to make sure that covid coverage is included in claim as I’m going on a cruise 4 days if I got sick on the boat and needed to see a doctor is that covered ? I ticked family quote as I’m travelling single parent 3 adult children one of those is a dependant not working studying full time dies that change the quote ?
Hi Mammie M,
Thanks for your enquiry.
With regards to COVID-19 cover, if Cruise cover is specified on the quote there is unlimited COVID-19 medical cover if you were to unexpectedly test positive while aboard the ship. Cover is subject to the policy terms, conditions, limits and exclusions in the PDS: https://fastcover.com.au/pds
Our policies have a maximum of 2 adults (over 20 years old) on each policy. Based on your travel plans, you will need to take a DUO policy for your 2 adult children and a Single policy for yourself with 1 dependant listed provided they are younger than 21 years old.
If you need assistance obtaining a quote, please call 1300 409 322 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We are traveling to Bali and just wondering if we would be covered for natural disasters ? eg Volcano eruption thanks
