Transparent Accidental Injury Cover

Insurance can be overwhelming, but not with Flip. We've created accidental injury cover that's easy to understand, with no complicated add-ons or hidden catches.
We provide a cash payment for specified injuries where an accident is the main and direct cause.

You get one payout per accident for whichever injury or treatment gets you the most cash.
We encourage you to review the details in our Product Disclosure Statement (PDS), including our claim checklist.

What Flip users are saying

I would highly recommended Flip insurance, the claim process is exceptionally easy to navigate and all information for the process explained. My claim was processed and approved within a couple of hours. A very positive insurance experience which is a rarity nowadays! Well done to the Flip team!
Bodhi S
Flip were incredibly easy to work with and the process of putting in a claim is super simple. It is so easy to switch on your cover even if you think you don't need it. I highly recommend anyone who is active like me, who loves extreme sports, to get cover with Flip.

The claim process is as straightforward as it could possibly be!
Daniel M | Mountain biker
I received great service from Flip, the communication was clear and professional and they helped me out when I needed it. The coverage is great, it covers all it needs to!
Dougal | Mountain biker
Flip is simple and I can choose exactly when I want cover. Signing up literally took less than two minutes. Being able to cancel when I don’t need it and get cover again when I do is perfect for my lifestyle.

I’m always skeptical of insurance products and it being too good to be true, so need to find the catch. Not this time Flip’s the real deal.

Mountain Bike Accident
Between all of my sports, I probably get injured more than most. I feel super protected with Flip because it helps with out of pockets gaps, and random expenses. I wouldn’t be without it for the peace of mind.
