Travel insurance 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 insurance 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 insurance 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.

Frequently Asked Questions About Travel Insurance
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 insurance, though it is possible to get multi trip travel insurance which is a single policy that covers you for multiple trips in a single year.
What is the cheapest travel insurance?
When it comes to travel insurance, your priority should not be who offers the cheapest travel insurance, but rather who offers affordable travel insurance 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 insurance differs from one insurer to the next, and according to the type of cover you request. Coverage could include the following:
Flight and accommodation cancellations
Lost, stolen, or delayed luggage

Do I need travel insurance for Australia?
If you're an Australian resident travelling in Australia domestic travel insurance 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 travel insurance 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 insurance products before booking your trip you will be better prepared to make a decision.
Should I get travel insurance for a cruise?
You should always take out cruise travel insurance, even a domestic cruise. This is not only to protect yourself against cancellations and lost or stolen luggage, but also for 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 insurance if you pay for your trip using your credit card. However, some of the benefits included in these travel insurance policies could be quite limited compared to standalone travel insurance. It is always wise to assess the benefits compared to other travel insurance policies before deciding whether or not it is sufficient.
Can seniors get travel insurance?
Yes, seniors can get travel insurance, 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.
