Your Card, Dates and Region

If you are unsure, check the name on your card.

There is no fixed amount of pre-paid spend required to activate cover for an Advantage Visa Platinum Card. For an Advantage Visa Business Card, cover eligibility for each trip has its own required minimum spend on the card itself, depending on destination of travel and whether any additional family members require cover.

We use this to match the card type you chose above. If you have both Business and Platinum cards, you can enter the first six digits of either card numbers.

Do you hold a return ticket for your trip?

To be eligible you must hold a return ticket before you depart New Zealand. This can include two or more tickets purchased separately if you have confirmed bookings to depart from and return to New Zealand. If you do not have return tickets booked, you may still be covered if you must cancel planned travel before you depart however you will not be able to confirm eligibility for the overseas portion of your trip till you have a return ticket.

This is the date you are scheduled to depart from New Zealand. If you are traveling domestically prior to your international departure, do not include domestic travel days. Please include the time of your scheduled travel so we can be certain of the number of days, measured in consecutive 24-hour blocks, that you are overseas (NZ time zone).  Ensure you consider time differences/zones and travel times.
