How it works: travel insurance for your snow trip using PassportCard

If you’re heading to the slopes domestically or going overseas for winter sports activities and want those activities to be covered by PassportCard, you’ll also need to add on our optional Winter Sports cover in our Comprehensive Domestic or International Comprehensive or Basic policies.


When taking out PassportCard travel insurance, we also give you the option to be sent a PassportCard. If you get sick or injured in a skiing or snowboarding accident, we can load money for approved claims on the card in Real-Time to help cover your expenses – so you can get back to enjoying your snow sports. If your cash is stolen, we can put up to $500 on the PassportCard to help you until you work out details with your bank.


With our Comprehensive cover we can also settle approved claims for delayed luggage and can add up to $150 to buy emergency essentials. It’s how travel insurance should be – quick, simple and hassle-free.

All benefits and covers are subject to the terms, conditions, limitations and exclusions listed in the Combined Financial Services Guide and Product Disclosure Statement, and the schedule.

Find a Policy

Whether you’re on a budget and seeking just medical, or you’re looking for a much more comprehensive coverage, compare PassportCard’s insurance covers to find a cover that suits your holiday and budget.

Comprehensive International Cover

This policy offers broader protection to ensure you are covered for some of the most common claims made by Australian travellers, including lost, damaged or delayed luggage.

Basic Cover

PassportCard’s Basic Cover offers essential medical cover for Australians travelling overseas. If you’ll be travelling light, without expensive personal items, it could be for you.

Domestic Travel Insurance

While travelling domestically you can still experience cancelled flights, delayed luggage or have your wallet/purse stolen – making travel insurance just as important if you’re holidaying here in Australia as when you are travelling overseas.
