How to activate your travel insurance

Before you get started, remember to keep any receipts, emails, bank statements or other proof that shows you’ve activated your travel insurance. If you make a claim, we’ll need to see this. Here are the ways to activate your travel insurance prior to leaving New Zealand:

  • Pay for at least 50% of your overseas return travel tickets using your ASB Visa Business Rewards credit card.  
  • Use your True Rewards Dollars, Airpoints or other frequent flyer points to buy your overseas return travel tickets. If you don’t have enough True Rewards Dollars or frequent flyer points for the whole amount, you can use another activation method to pay at least 50% of the balance to access travel insurance. 
  • Get a cash advance from your ASB Visa Business Rewards account and on the same day you can use these funds to pay for at least 50% of your overseas return travel tickets. 
  • Pay for at least 50% of your overseas return travel tickets from your ASB bank account, in your business name, if you’re unable to use your ASB Visa Business Rewards to pay for your tickets (your travel provider must give you written confirmation that your credit card is not acceptable or would incur an additional charge).
