Detailed Travel Insurance Analysis For Pregnant Mum

A close friend of mine N was going to her favourite Australia yet again, only this time pregnant haha. She asked me to look at travel policies for her.

It’s great to go holiday on your second trimester cause when baby’s here, you ain’t going anywhere for 6months at least! Besides, you will not enjoy too much when your tummy is heavy in the 3rd trimester.

What to note!

DO NOT CHOOSE THE CHEAPEST INSURER and assume you will be covered for medical treatment in an event of dehydration, motion sickness or injury while pregnant. It is generally excluded as shown below.

Before you read further, do note that insurers DO NOT cover for you if you are in your first trimester. Beyond a certain number of weeks, many airlines will not allow flight for pregnant mums too.
