Travel coverage is a smart investment - buying it shouldn't be complicated!

Nobody expects anything to go wrong when travelling - both locally and internationally - but the reality is that things go wrong all the time. Flights are delayed or cancelled, luggage is lost, and anyone can fall ill, or be injured.

Holidays should be fun, and business trips should be about closing that deal, and with the right travel cover they can be, with you protected not only against unexpected illnesses or injuries, but also against your luggage not arriving on time - or at all.

Travel coverage offers you peace-of-mind, leaving you to enjoy your trip - whether it's for business or pleasure - without having to worry about what could go wrong.

Online Travel Insurance

The best way to find the right policy for you is to compare multiple quotes online. Compare the cost and benefits of each, looking for one that is affordable, but offers you all the benefits you need.

The types of travel cover you can take out include internationalannualcorporategroup for groups of 10 or more people who will all be following the same itinerary, and even school travel insurance.

We can help you get the right cover and save money, whether you're travelling to the other side of Australia, or the other side of the world.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is travel insurance?

Travel insurance is insurance that provides protection against financial losses you could suffer while travelling. The losses could be the result of things like medical expenses due to illness or injury; lost, damaged, or stolen luggage; cancelled flights or accommodation; even emergency evacuation. The type of events you are covered for depends on the type of policy you have taken out, with the most common one being international travel cover, though it is possible to get multi trip travel policies which is a single policy that covers you for multiple trips in a single year.

What is the cheapest travel policy?

When it comes to travel indemnity, your priority should not be the cheapest travel insurer, but rather who offers relevant travel policy with all the benefits you need. Assessing the benefits, limits, and exclusions should be your top priority, followed by price. We'll help you find the right cover, at a price you can afford.

What does travel insurance cover?

What is covered by travel policies differs from one insurer to the next, and according to the type of cover you request. Coverage could include the following:

  •  Medical expenses
  •  Flight and accommodation cancellations
  •  Lost, stolen, or delayed luggage
  •  Emergency evacuations

Read through the Product Disclosure Statement when comparing quotes online to understand what is covered, and what is excluded.

Do I need travel insurance for Australia?

If you're an Australian resident travelling in Australia domestic cover can be useful in protecting you against lost or stolen luggage, and cancelled trips. If you are visiting from abroad, then travel insurance to Australia is definitely a wise choice for the same reason as visiting any country: you never know when you might need it for medical costs, unplanned changes to your travels, or just delayed luggage.

When should I get travel insurance?

The best time to take out a travel policy is when you book and pay for your trip. Some policies have a 7-14 day waiting period before any benefits become available, and buying it well in advance of your trip also protects you against cancellation costs. If you do a comparison of travel indemnity products before booking your trip you will be better prepared to make a decision.

Should I get travel insurance for a cruise?

We generally advise that you should always take out cruise cover, even on a domestic cruise. This is not only to protect yourself against cancellations and lost or stolen luggage, but also for any onboard medical expenses. Medicare and private health insurance do not generally cover medical expenses incurred while on a cruise, even if the cruise ship never leaves Australian waters.

Does my credit card cover travel insurance?

Many credit cards do offer cheap - or free - travel policies if you pay for your trip using your credit card. However, some of the benefits included in these policies could be quite limited compared to standalone travel cover. It is always wise to assess the benefits compared to other policies before deciding whether or not it is sufficient.

Can seniors get travel insurance?

Yes, seniors can get travel cover, though some insurers do still have a maximum age they will cover, along with other restrictions and/or benefit limits. We provide access to discounted travel insurance for seniors, with an additional 10% saving for travellers aged 60 and over.
