Official advice for New Zealanders living and travelling overseas

Travel insurance

Do not leave New Zealand without comprehensive travel and medical insurance – treatment of a minor injury or a hospital admission can be very expensive in some countries. Ask your travel agent, bank or doctor for available options and carry evidence of your insurance cover at all times.

Make sure it covers the activities you will be undertaking, and any pre-existing medical conditions.

The Insurance Council of New Zealand provides more information on travel insurance and a list of Insurance Council members on their website.
