We are pleased to announce a special new service that allows you to have access to Australian based Doctors whilst you are travelling.
Travelbay offers travel insurance through Cover-More and they are now including this special and reassuring Travel GP Service. What this means is that whilst you are travelling, should you need to consult a doctor, you can be put in touch with an Australian based GP via a phone or video call.
There is no extra charge for this service and all GPs are highly qualified, experienced medical doctors.
Language barriers and different health care standards can be challenging when travelling, so it is a comfort (if you have taken out the insurance) to know that you have this tele medicine service available to you.
It is available 24/7 for Travelbay Cover-More customers. Once you make a call, a GP will get back to you within the hour. Over the phone the Travel GPs can provide clear and simple medical advice and guidance as well as advice on local differences in terminology and medication brands. Peace of mind may be what you are looking for the most.
It is a fantastic service for non-emergency care and for when you, your kids, partner or friends are sick but not sick enough to visit a doctor. And all of this can be done from your hotel room.
The last thing you want on your holiday is to spend it in strange hospitals. This service aims to support you, prevent that and allow you to keep travelling.
Having travel insurance is a very worthwhile investment. Being able to access a doctor in Australia takes the benefits of travel insurance to another level.
Travel GP services do not form part of the travel insurance policy. It is a service offered to customers at Cover-More’s cost and sole discretion. Circumstances including age, location, medical condition or issue, proximity to appropriate medical care and medical history will also be considered. Any advice provided is general advice only. Customers should read the combined PDS/FSC (available from covermore.com.au) before buying travel insurance to ensure it meets their needs.
