Special features for the ADF
Defence Health Travel Insurance provides cover for the special needs of the ADF and their families.
ADF members (permanent, and reservists serving 20 or more training days in a financial year) on deployment or overseas posting can be covered for leisure travel from their overseas base. The same flexibility applies to their family if they are living overseas with the ADF member. Return travel is covered back to the overseas post or to Australia.
Leave cancellation insurance is also available for ADF members and their families if a holiday booking has to be cancelled because the ADF member has received notice of deployment.
ADF members and Defence Health members also receive special rates.
Being sick or injured away from home is not just inconvenient. It can be very expensive. And your health insurance does not cover you overseas.
Lost or stolen luggage, cancelled flights and lost deposits can put you out thousands of dollars. In the case of overseas medical bills even tens of thousands.
The risks of travelling overseas without travel insurance are high.
Added assurance with Allianz and Allianz Global Assistance
Defence Health Travel Insurance is underwritten by Allianz Australia Insurance Limited (Allianz). Which means you enjoy the highest level of assurance from a company in one of the world's largest insurance groups.
Emergency assistance is provided by Allianz Global Assistance which gives you access to an Australian call centre and agents, as well as an international network of experienced doctors, registered nurses, medical case managers and logistics experts.
Whether it’s lost or stolen items, or medical emergencies, at home or afar, Allianz Global Assistance provides the support to ensure you and your family are always looked after.
