I imagine, you will need to prove the bikes worth before you leave AUS. otherwise it is very easy to do while overseas. I get mine replaced or extended yearly and have no problems.
SO, before you leave just get in contact with her and ask your questions. She might even be able to put it all on file before you go so that you can just email her and tell her when you need it. Shes pretty flexible!
I hope this helps.
