We are aware that Cyclone Donna may have an impact on policyholders travelling from or to Vanuatu.
We advise all customers who are travelling in and around the affected areas to take care during the current weather event, and please do not hesitate to contact our emergency service if you require assistance. We urge all people to remain up to date with the latest media advice.
The following information concerns policyholders whose travel arrangements have been affected by this weather event.
If you have been affected by this event there may be provision for you to claim for benefits provided by your Zoom policy. Claims will be assessed in accordance with your Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) and may vary depending on the type of policy you purchased.
There is provision to claim for the forfeiture of any pre-booked travel arrangements that are cancelled due to this weather event, including accommodation, flights, tours, and other travel arrangements.
We recommend you contact your travel agent or travel provider regarding the best option in altering your trip.
If you’re currently travelling there is provision to claim for any reasonable additional travel and accommodation expenses if your scheduled or connecting transport is cancelled, delayed, shortened or diverted because of Cyclone Donna.
Our policies do not cover claims for losses caused by something that you were aware of at the time of purchasing your policy. If you entered into a policy after 1PM (NZST) Friday 5th May 2017 we would expect that this was done with an awareness of Cyclone Donna. For these policies, we will not pay any claim caused by or arising from or in any way connected with Cyclone Donna.
