Available to residents and non-residents of NZ
The QBE Discover NZ Policy is available to residents travelling within New Zealand and to non-residents visiting New Zealand. For permanent residents, the policy will cover travel within New Zealand, and travel within Australia and the South Pacific Islands for a maximum of 31 days (provided that departing from NZ). For non-residents, the policy will also cover the period travelling to New Zealand from your normal country of residence and the period travelling back home, provided that travel to and from NZ does not exceed 72 hours.
Skiing and snowboarding, and other amateur sports
If skiing or snowboarding, the Snow Sports Package add-on can be purchased to cover claims arising due to participation in snow sports within the boundaries of a commercially licensed ski field. The Snow Sports Package can be added when getting a quote for an additional premium of $70 per adult ($100 less the 30% discount available through Travel Insurance Cover).
Most amateur sports are automatically covered - including hiking, scuba diving, paragliding, bungee jumping, surfing and white water rafting. Professional sports, competitive contact sports, abseiling, rock climbing using support ropes, and base jumping are not covered under the policy. A full list of excluded sports can be found on page 6 in the product disclosure statement.
Rental vehicle insurance excess
Policies have a standard limit of $3,000 to cover the insurance excess of a rental vehicle (like a car, campervan, motorcycle or boat) in the event of an accident or theft. Where required, the standard limit can be increased by a further $3,000 to a total limit of $6,000 for an additional premium. The level of cover can be increased at the time of getting a quote under the Additional Benefits section. The policy does not provide cover for liability resulting from the use or a mechanically propelled vehicle, which should be arranged separately.
