Thank you for the prompt refund.


I have travelled a number of times overseas and each time I have taken out HBF Travel insurance. This has been the first year I have needed to claim on the insurance.
Having taken out the Travel insurance before COVID19 was declared a pandemic, we were covered by the travel insurance.
Our tour provider could not refund us the full amount of our cancelled tour because of COVID19 but the HBF travel insurance team where very helpful in guiding us through our claim of the difference in the amount.
After submitting the claim and after a phone call to finalise details we had our claim amount in our bank within a couple of days.
Thank you HBF.

Hi Gary, thanks for finding the time to contact us while you are out globetrotting!

I'm sure you can appreciate there is quite a lot of information involved with insurance, especially when it comes to international cover. It may be best to give our experienced General Insurance representatives a call to ensure we are covering all bases and answering all the questions you have, in as much detail as you need.

Feel free to give us a call on 133 423 when you have a little block of time free and we will definitely be able to help. We look forward to hearing from you and all the best for your travels!

Best Regards,
The HBF Team
