Travel Insurance for New Zealand


From the pristine beaches of the North Island, to the mountains and glaciers of the South Island, New Zealand is a hotspot for Aussie travellers.

New Zealand has something for everyone, whether you want to explore the breath-taking landscape, learn about the rich Māori culture, or sample world class wines at one of the many idyllic vineyards.

Travel smart in New Zealand

As with all international destinations, it’s important to take out adequate travel insurance to protect you and your family if things go wrong, whether it’s a natural disaster or a broken bone. 

Our TravelCare plan has got you covered with a wide range of benefits at a price that won’t break the bank.

Southern Cross Travel Insurance includes cover for:

  • Unlimited medical and evacuation expenses, with no excess for medical claims
  • Cancellation fees and lost deposits
  • Damaged or lost baggage
  • Personal items if they are stolen or damaged
  • Rental car excess should you have an accident
  • Emergency dental treatment

With worldwide emergency assistance available 24 hours a day, every day, we are ready to assist when you need us.

Adrenaline-pumping activities

Under our policy, all the regular holiday pursuits are included, but if you’re planning any activities that are deemed to be dangerous, check the policy wording or ask us to see whether you’re covered. Some activities such as bungee jumping, parachuting, and white water rafting are covered provided you are participating with an operator who is licensed in New Zealand.

If you are planning a skiing or snowboarding trip to New Zealand, check out our skiing and snowboarding overseas holiday guide.

Be prepared

Don’t leave your travel insurance to the last minute. Buy your policy as soon as you’ve booked your flight to ensure you are covered for alteration and cancellation before you travel, in case there is an unexpected event that affects your travel plans. (Please refer to the Combined FSG and PDS including Policy Wording for the terms and conditions of cover).

The SCTI difference

SCTI saves you money by providing travel insurance direct to you. We are the underwriter and insurer. We cut out the middleman, which means you pay no travel agency commission and have more money to spend on your holiday.
