Early next year we're travelling to QLD from MELB for 7 nights (Noosa).
We just found out a close family member only has a few months to live.
If this person passes away just before we travel or while we're away, can the insurance assist us?

Travel insurance question

I'm really sorry to hear.
Usually if it's a pre-existing medical condition, it wouldn't be covered. Some companies might let you apply for cover, but that would involve medical assessment for you I'll relative. This is what used to happen when I worked in travel insurance, then they changed it so it wasn't covered at all.
ETA: it would also depend on the age of your relative. If the company does over the cover, there would be an age cut off (ours was 75).

I didn't have travel insurance but when my pop died earlier this year, Jetstar cancelled my flights and refunded me in full via their compassionate policy. All I had to do was submit the form with a statement from the funeral home (as the funeral was the day I was due to fly). It was surprisingly quite easy to do. I would also be checking with the airline and your accommodation if they have individual compassionate policies. Your insurance *should* cover it, but check with your policy holder.

Can anyone recommend a company for travel insurance for Bali, I will only be 5wks but I see many of the insurers will not cover you if your pregnancy is fertility clinic assisted... I also wonder if I don't tell them will they refuse to pay any over claims should I need to claim?
Any recommendations or experiences would greatly help! I usually use world care which are great!

not telling them is bound to only cause problems.
Find an insurer who will cover fertility assisted pregnancies
