We're going on out first family holiday to QLD, have been waiting for this day for 6 months and DS1 is sick!!
We are meant to be leaving tomorrow and he just threw up. So I'm assuming he has gastro. Our plane leaves at around 10am tomorrow morning. If he's sick through the night, what are we to do?! There's Dh, myself and Ds1&2 going.
I don't want to call the travel insurance just yet.

Urgent travel insurance question.

Wait a couple of hours and if he still vomiting go to the doctor.
If you need to cancel you will need a doctors certificate saying he is not fit to fly to claim on your travel insurance.
After the doctor ring the medical line and they will advise you on what to do.
Fingers crossed everything works out for your holiday to go ahead!

What do you mean by ring the medical line?
If the doctor comes tonight (I assume we'll get a doctor to come to the house), do I call the travel insurance in the morning? Can Dh and ds2 still fly and I'll go with ds1 the next day?
I'm so confused.

Who is your travel insurance with?
Most insurance companies have a 24hr medical emergency line you can call (overseas and within Australia), you should have been given this number with your policy. You usually talk to a case manager and then a nurse. Not only can they advise you on what to do, they can advise you on how whether or not there is provision for cover under your policy.
Or you can just cancel your flights yourself and submit a claim at a later date (with the doctors filing out the required parts on the claim form).
On whether or not you can fly at a later date you would need to ask the insurance company and it would depend on what your policy allows.
I would actually call and ask what your options are asap, if you think you won't be able to fly tomorrow.

What if call them now, but he's better in the morning? They might not let him fly??

Call them in a few hours and see how he goes.
Or see what the dr says.

So far he's ok. He hasn't thrown up since that one time at 6pm. He's in bed with me and hasn't woken up.

Can I ask why travel insurance in needed if domestic? Sorry.
Hopefully his all good and just a little bug that's over with me.
Keep fluids up slowly and try to keep off dairy products.
Have a good holiday
