Travel and international help

Am I eligible for credit card travel insurance?

Do you have a Bankwest World Mastercard®, Platinum Mastercard or Gold Mastercard? You, your spouse and dependent children may be eligible for International Travel Insurance. You just need to: 

  1. Be travelling to an overseas destination and have a return overseas ticket booked before leaving Australia
  2. Spend at least AUD$500 on prepaid travel costs – this could include your tickets, airport taxes or accommodation
  3. Pay these costs using your eligible credit card and/or by redeeming Bankwest More Rewards points


If you fit the criteria above you’re automatically eligible. Limitations, exclusions and eligibility criteria apply. See our Complimentary Credit Card Insurance booklet (PDF) for details.

From 1 October 2018 we’re changing our insurance provider as well as the Overseas Travel Insurance cover provided to customers 80 years of age and over. Find out more about the changes to credit card insurance.
