THIS POST WILL BE UPDATED REGULARLY AS COMPANIES CHANGE THEIR TRAVEL INSURANCE POLICIES REGARDING THE VOLCANO.
Mt Agung began erupting since November 2017 and continues to have the potential to erupt again, potentially causing closure of Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport. Since it hasbecome a “known event” many travel insurance companies have stopped covering for delays and cancellations due to volcanic ash. As the situation evolves and Bali struggles with the loss of tourists, some companies have changed and amended their cover. Please see below a list of companies and their relevant cover (if they offer cover at all).
Flights Centre Australia – updated 5 January 2018
Flight Centre is now offering volcano cover for trips to Bali! Sound too good to be true? To save you the time, we've found out all of the details for you, see below...
🚩 It's $29 and will cover you if the volcano erupts before your flight and the airport is closed
🚩 Refunds are only applicable prior to departure out of Australia, not in-destination, that means if you're already in Bali and the volcano goes off you're not covered
🚩Only available for bookings made in-store in Western Australia, with their Webchat team or Twenty47 phone team and only for flights departing from Perth
🚩 Valid on new Bali Holiday bookings only and only applicable on selected airlines and hotels/resorts
🚩 Valid for travel up to 30 April 2018
Please note that this is not general health and travel insurance and a travel insurance policy will need to be taken out in addition to this cover
