Best travel insurer around

published

Outstanding. In Feb, we booked an OS trip and took out insurance. Trip was cancelled because, COVID, and while we received flight credits and accom refunds, I just assumed our insurance was money down the drain. But no! Email this week asking whether I’d like it refunded to our credit card or a bank account. I’ve used Worldcare on multiple occasions and have had nothing but positive experiences and excellent customer service and advice, but this was the icing on the cake. 100% would recommend

Worldcare travel insurance is excellent value for money. During my holiday to the UK I needed to seek medical assistance.The customer care team were outstanding and assisted me with getting home safely. Claiming for medical expenses was also hassle free and straightforward. Highly recommended

Easy to set up

published

Easy to set up. No claim necessary. I did get sick but the one visit to a GP wasn't worth claiming for. Good to know that I was covered for any eventuality especially after Covid-19 appeared globally while I was away

Worst insurer ever

published

More exclusions than inclusion and if you have a genuine question you will need to wait 2.5 hrs on the phone like i did today, only to be told they cant help and to check their website, becuase the staff memeber i spoke to had no idea.

Best investment for peace of mind.

published

I had done my research before purchasing this insurance policy and found that the underwriters were a reputable company and that gave me a sense of peace of mind.The premium was very competitive but provided cover for declared medical issues with no excessive overloading fees.I have already recommended the company and will use them in my future travels.

Easy to purchase

Reasonable price. Easy to buy on line and appears to be comprehensive. I didn’t have a claim so I don’t know about that process. Policy seems to cover most eventualities

Just some insurance in case of accident

published

I am happy with the insurance I got although I had to cut my trip down, I would use Worldcare Travel Insurance again for my next overseas trip as it was the most economical and comprehensive insurance. I cannot rate the insurance as I did not require to make a claim however, I would welcome another survey if I did have to make a claim.

All I expected

published

This is the second time I have used Worldcare travel insurance. Fortunately no need to claim this time. On a previous trip we did need to claim and the process was very good and they walked us through the steps so there was no problems. The claim was resolved in a matter of days to our satisfaction. I would not use any other insurer now.

All good. Would recommend this Company to others.

Worldcare Travel Insurance

I took out a policy to travel to Japan. I am now not going. There seems to be no way to actually cancel the insurance? Or at least I could not find a way. Should be clear - no travel, refund the insurance premium?

Hi, if the Australian Government or other official authority issues a Do Not Travel warning to the specific region or country I am booked to travel to, and that warning is given after I purchase your travel insurance policy and after I book my travel arrangements (flights and accommodation), would you cover me for cancellation of my trip? Kind regards, Gillian

You need to ring WTI & talk to them about your specific circumstances. Don’t assume anything. It’s likely your conversation will be recorded for future reference if needed, for both parties benefits.
