Air New Zealand Travel Insurance Plans

Air New Zealand offers multiple travel insurance policies for either single trip or multi-trip insurance plans. At this time there are five international plans to choose from, including: International Single Trip, Business Single Trip, Koru Multi Trip, International Multi Trip and Business Multi Trip.

Tip! When comparing plans, make sure you compare Excess Fees (the fee you pay when making a claim) for each product. Air New Zealand Travel Insurance Excess Fees range from $0 to $500, so pay attention when making a comparison between travel insurance plans.

International Single Trip Insurance

This is the most popular Air New Zealand Travel Insurance policy for international trips. With unlimited medical and dental expenses ,as well as $15,000 loss of income, and $50,000 loss of limb on your return home, you’re covered at home and abroad.

They also offer a generous $25,000 for loss, theft or damage on all luggage, however note that there is only a $200 max on sporting goods, so if you’re travelling with an expensive set of golf clubs or a surfboard you might want to get additional insurance on those items.

Business Single Trip Insurance

If you’re flying primarily for business then opting for Single Trip Business Insurance might be a good idea. With a reduced excess waiver on car rentals, greater coverage for lost luggage as well as an extra $2000 replacement on business equipment, as well as $500 for sporting goods, and $3000 for delayed luggage, you’ll be better prepared for that critical meeting should something happen while you’re away.

Koru Multi Trip Insurance

Available exclusively to Koru, Airpoints Gold and Airpoints Elite Members, the lower priced Koru Multi Trip Insurance is an attractive plan if you qualify. With unlimited trips worldwide (60 days each or less) you can do a lot of travelling with a Koru Multi Trip Plan. Very similar to the Business plans, it includes greater coverage in a lot of areas than the International plans.

International Multi Trip Insurance

Nearly identical to the International Single Trip plan, the Multi Trip plan includes unlimited trips anywhere in the world up to 60 days.

Business Multi Trip Insurance

Nearly identical to the Business Single Trip plan, the Multi Trip plan includes unlimited trips anywhere in the world up to 60 days. Also included: One holiday journey during the year for up to 28 days.
