When they impact on your travel plans, accidents take away the fun and excitement and replace it with upheaval, stress and financial strain.
Travel insurance can offer you peace of mind that if an accident does happen, you will have help when you need it most.
Travellers who choose to travel without insurance will be personally responsible for covering any costs that they incur. Should uninsured travellers require medical care overseas or need medical evacuation to Australia or another country, the costs can reach the millions. It is important to note that the Australian Government won't cover those costs and it’s often left to family members and friends to do what they can to raise the funds required, which can result in financial ruin.
When considering travel insurance, you should ensure that your policy covers unlimited medical and dental expenses for injury or illness, in addition to providing coverage for trip cancellation, theft, damage to luggage and interruptions to travel plans.
There are many different travel insurance products for you to choose from to cover you on your trips at home and abroad, so it's important to do your research so you can find the right policy to suit your specific needs.
