For when pain wipes the smile off your face.

  • Trusted by:

Dental Travel Insurance is an essential cover for all travellers, with the difference between a taste adventure or taste disaster hanging in the balance.

Whether you’re sampling the ktefa in Morocco or taking the durian challenge in Thailand, you can’t enjoy the experience if eating is well-nigh impossible because of tooth pain.

What’s covered?

All of our policies can cover dental expenses if you've have to see a dentist while traveling for the immediate relief of sudden pain to healthy, natural teeth if:

  • You've get an unexpected infection
  • You've broken your tooth 
  • You injure your mouth or jaw in an accident

If you’re experiencing tooth pain, contact our emergency assistance team who will help you locate a qualified dentist nearby.

What’s not covered?

Travel insurance isn’t designed to cover everything. Common dental claims we see where there's no cover include:

  • Dental work other than that related to emergency Dental pain relief
  • Cosmetic whitening in Thailand
  • Pre-existing dental problems
  • Major dental work, such as crowns, dentures, bridges and implants

This is not a full list of what's covered and what's not covered. There are limits and conditions that apply, so for more information check out our article on dental cover and read your policy carefully before you buy.

How to get dental assistance

If you're in a serious accident, it’s essential that you get in contact with our emergency assistance teams as soon as possible so that our teams can support you.

So that our Emergency Assistance teams can assist you quickly, please be ready with the following:

  • Your policy number
  • A contact number for where you are now
  • The nature of your problem
  • Your location

If you've already visited a dentist and received emergency treatment, you can submit your claim online.

I bit on something hard

We were in Byblos, Lebanon and bought a Labneh (local cheese and olive) wrap from a cafe. Whilst eating the wrap I bit down on something hard, it turned out to be a massive olive stone. The stone cracked 3 of my teeth. One completely cracked and the other two damaged. It was incredibly painful. Fortunately the person we were staying with contacted their dentist who opened up their surgery that evening and treated me.
