Travel Insurance - a great benefit for financial members



As great value-added benefit of joining the Doctors’ Union is access to free and comprehensive travel insurance * that covers not only you but your family as well (including your dependent children and spouse/partner when they travel with you) whenever you travel in Australia or overseas.

This is a great selling point when you ask a colleague to join the Union.

Recently our underwriter has asked us to remind members of the importance of lodging claims in a timely manner. The sooner claims are lodged the sooner they can be settled.

All claims can be lodged using the online claim portal:

The beauty of the portal is that you don’t have to wait till you get home to lodge a claim.

Also, all claims under $5000 are submitted through a FastTrack process and most claims lodged using the portal are settled in less than a week.

We have also been asked to put a request out to members to lodge any claims you have as soon as you can.

To find out more on the Travel Insurance policy, please login to the “Members Only” portal, and follow the links to the 2018 Travel Insurance.

*Travel Insurance is only available to financial members of the Union. That means you must be fully financial before commencement a trip.
