Travel Insurance for members

Gymnastics Australia (GA) is pleased to offer access for Affiliated Clubs to GA’s Travel Insurance. This is in addition to the existing covers available in the extensive National Risk Protection Programme.

Whilst GA's current Programme covers Members for Personal Accident Insurance in Australia, access to Travel Insurance will provide cover for a range of risks that may otherwise be limited when competing in international events. Three of these are listed below:

  1. Medical Expenses;

  2. Luggage and Personal Effects; and

  3. Missed Transport Connections

One of the most significant benefits associated with GA’s Travel Insurance Policy is that it covers 'Participation'. Many other travel policies strictly exclude sports participation; therefore, if you were injured whilst participating in a gymnastics event overseas, you may be unable to claim on your travel insurance. With participation included, the GA Travel Policy is better suited to a gymnastics tour. This is a substantial and unique benefit for affiliated Clubs who have previously struggled to find appropriate and comparable insurance when travelling.

Process

It is very important that Clubs understand the process for placement of Travel Insurance as it is outlined as follows:

  1. Download the Tour Endorsement and Travel Insurance Application Form* (as below);

  2. Complete all relevant details as requested

  3. Submit the Form to GA (decision of endorsement may take up to two weeks);

Upon endorsement:

  1. GA will provide a quote directly to the individual/Club/State Association Member for Travel Insurance;

  2. Club confirms quote and placement of cover and pays premium prior to travel

* All Applications for Travel Insurance must first be endorsed by GA. All Clubs/State applicants should also note GA's Club-Program Tour Guidelines, as provided below.

Please note: Before entering into an insurance contract with a general insurer, please ensure you are aware of the policy wordings, terms and conditions.
