Travel insurance is important regardless of the number of times you travel and not all policies are the same. Unfortunately, it's not until something goes wrong that you really know the value of quality travel insurance. The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade assists approximately 20,000 Australians a year, 700 hospital admissions, 600 deaths and 100 evacuation due to medical circumstances.
Travel insurance covers a variety of insurable events such as flight cancellations, medical expenses, baggage theft or damage depending on the type of cover that you opt for. However, it is important to obtain a cover that suits your individual circumstances as well as your travel plans, taking into consideration your age, the destination, your stay duration, pre-existing medical conditions, what belongings you are taking and activities you are likely to do.
Our insurance team have come up with a few tips to help you choose the right type of travel insurance and to be prepared if you need to put in a claim.
