Heading off on holiday in New Zealand is risky as there is a chance the Government will have to impose restrictions should another outbreak of Covid-19 happen.
If you’re planning a holiday within New Zealand, Consumer NZ is warning you should think carefully before taking out travel insurance.
Travel insurance has traditionally been the domain of overseas travel – where a medical emergency can quickly become a financial disaster.
But after international travel all but ended as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, travel insurers like Southern Cross Travel Insurance began marketing travel insurance.
Like most airlines around the world, Air New Zealand has been crippled by Covid-19.
The watchdog organisation says domestic travel insurance could be poor value for money.
In a report, it said its review of six domestic travel insurance policies found travellers might not get much cover if their plans “go pear-shaped”.
