Do I need travel insurance?
We encourage all those travelling overseas to get travel insurance. Without it, you’re leaving yourself and your family vulnerable. But don’t just take our word for it. Smartraveller.gov.au state on their website that all departing travellers should protect themselves with travel insurance.
Some of our highest medical claims have topped $500,000, and even minor accidents can cost a small fortune in countries like the USA.
Unfortunately, medical emergencies aren’t the only thing that can spoil your trip. Pickpockets, scammers, cancelled bookings and delayed flights can all wreak havoc on your travel plans, potentially leaving you with a hefty bill to pay. That’s why smart travellers know that quality travel insurance is an important item on every overseas trip.
Visiting more than one country?
If you’re visiting multiple destinations, you can travel with confidence knowing that our TravelCare Single Journey policy covers you for trips of up to 365 days, across multiple destinations.
The destinations you visit can affect the price of your policy, depending on their risk rating, the cost of medical care in the country and their distance from Australia.
Family travel insurance
Travelling with the family can be an unforgettable experience. But whether it’s making sure everyone boards the right train safely, or keeping an eye on four bags instead of one, overseas family holidays can also be challenging. With our family travel insurance, you can travel with confidence knowing that your family is insured for the unexpected.
We understand that with extra flights, accommodation, transport and tours, family holidays can also be expensive. That’s why we offer free travel insurance for your dependent children aged 17 and under at no extra cost.
For the frequent flyers among us, our Annual Frequent Traveller policy may be the best value choice for you. Our annual travel insurance policy covers you for 12 months, no matter how many trips you take during that time (for journeys of up to 90 days).
