Medical expenses can be extremely high, especially while you’re overseas. The Australian Government will not cover your medical costs while you are overseas. If you do not have travel insurance, you are risking hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of additional charges which you are personally liable to pay. It is wise to check that your policy covers you for changes that occur while you are overseas, as some policies do not offer refunds if the security or safety environment changes. These terms and conditions will influence whether you are entitled to a refund if DFAT changes the level of the travel advice or possible travel warnings.
We recommend Covermore Travel Insurance which has over 20 years experience in travel insurance and over 10 million policy holders; and is one of Australia’s most highly regarded providers of Travel Insurance.
