Don’t let your dream overseas holiday turn into a nightmare
As much as we all dream of having the perfect overseas holiday, things can go wrong. Your travel plans are cancelled. You arrive on time, but your luggage is delayed—possibly forever. Or your money is stolen, leaving you stranded both physically and financially.
And what if you become sick or injured and need to go to hospital? Your health insurance won’t cover any overseas medical expenses, which means you could face a nasty bill at the end of your treatment.
That’s why you need international travel insurance if you’re heading overseas. It can reimburse you for the clothes you had to buy when your luggage went AWOL, and cover those medical treatments. It can even cover your personal liability expenses if you get into legal trouble.
Naturally, we have domestic travel insurance for your holiday within Australia too. Our beautiful country may be largely secure and safe but many of us are no strangers to theft and delayed trips. Cover to ensure that your trip isn't spoiled by the unforeseen will allow you to relax and to just enjoy the ride! And if you’re a frequent traveller, our annual travel insurance may suit your needs.
And while you may think you have the cheapest travel insurance, are you sure it’s the best travel insurance for you?
Whether you’re after cheap travel insurance for a trip in Australia or overseas, you need to look at more than just the price. So when you compare travel insurance, make sure you’ve also got the cover you need. For a quick comparison to see which of our travel policies will best suit your needs check out Budget Direct’s travel insurance comparison page.
