DON'T LEAVE HOME WITHOUT IT!
Each year the Australian Government handles over 20,000 cases involving Australians in difficulty overseas.
If you incur medical expenses while overseas and you don't have travel insurance, you are personally liable for covering these costs. The Government cannot pay for medical expenses overseas. Nor will Medicare or your domestic private health insurance.
Travel insurance also covers the policyholder for insurable events that may occur before or during travel, such as trip cancellation/interruption, medical expenses for injury or illness, theft of valuables, baggage delay or damage and more.
Travel insurance is as essential as your passport, regardless of your travel destination. If you can't afford travel insurance, you can't afford to travel!Back
