Checking your travel insurance eligibility

Your BNZ Advantage Visa Platinum credit card includes travel insurance^ for round trips of up to 90 days to and from New Zealand and domestic rental car excess cover. Your BNZ Advantage Visa Business credit card includes travel insurance^ for round trips of up to 35 days.

To be eligible for credit card travel insurance, you must meet all eligibility criteria for your trip before you depart New Zealand ^.  

You’re eligible for credit card travel insurance where:

  • you’re a BNZ Advantage Visa Platinum/Advantage Visa Business card holder at the time you make payment towards pre-paid travel costs like pre-paid accommodation, pre-paid tours, or return overseas travel tickets
  • you hold a return travel ticket for your trip before you depart New Zealand and are not travelling for longer than 90 days (Platinum) or 35 days (Business)
  • your trip is not for business purposes (Platinum only).

For peace of mind once you have your trip planned, visit our BNZ travel website to check your cover and to receive an email confirmation to take with you.

It’s important to keep receipts, bank statements, emails or other proof of your eligibility for travel insurance. If you make a claim, we’ll need to see these original documents.
