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.
