Holiday Travel Insurance
The CFMEU Queensland, together with BERT, have arranged leisure time travel insurance for all financial members of the union. You can access this cover anytime from December 1, 2011. Please register before you travel so that you can be helped right away in the case of an emergency situation.
To be eligible for cover, you must be a financial member of your union (and remain financial for the duration of your trip) under 70 years of age and the duration of your trip is limited to the period of travel. (See Period of Cover below.)
Cover for you and your family
Your spouse/partner and dependant children are also covered when they travel with you.
Period of Cover is limited to 14 days within Australia and 28 days overseas
Travel insurance starts from the date you leave your usual home residence and ends on the 14thday of travel within Australia (provided your destination is more than 250km from your residence) and on the 28thday of overseas trips.
You can buy extra insurance if you’re travelling beyond the period of cover
Extra travel insurance is available for you to buy at very competitive rates. Or, you can seek additional cover with another travel insurance provider. But if you decide to extend your stay while you’re away, you need to buy extra travel insurance to keep you covered.
